The track’s title is a gag about “ejaculating for the first time.”

Daniel Lopatin has revealed the inspirations behind the track ‘Sticky Drama’ from his acclaimed Oneohtrix Point Never album Garden of Delete, in a new episode of popular podcast Song Exploder.

OPN explained that the track name is a double-entendre, inspired by a gossip website and “ejaculating for the first time, which is a shock to the body.”

He discussed some of the software used to realise his vision, including the plug-ins which helped generate the multiple voices, and also how he arrived at those “hardstyle EDM beats.”

Lopatin said he wanted to create a “psycho scribble – the way a little kid will psychotically draw in his notebook,” and likened himself to a “science fiction musician” whose job is to “speculate on these imaginary modes of music that to me don’t exist yet.”

Song Exploder is a podcast that invites artists to break down the making of one of their tracks, with Björk and Kelela among the guests that have already stepped up to the plate.
