Since bursting onto the scene in 2011, Powell has been credited as one of the very rare producers in modern electronic music who has managed to create his own sound, seemingly out of nowhere.

Initially a fan of Drum and Bass, his early EPs on his and Jamie Williams’ Diagonal label fuse echoes of post-punk and no-wave with bleak, hard-hitting techno structures, recalling everything from Suicide’s Alan Vega to the spirit – if not the style – of his friend and mentor, Regis.

In 2014, he signed to indie giant XL, a testament to the huge potential of his utterly distinctive sound.
