Electronic music needs punks. It needs provocateurs. It needs Oscar Powell. Through the fizzing and whirring fractured-electronics he makes, and flawless curation of his Diagonal label, he has earned himself a seat at the table of his heroes, like Autechre, Russell Haswell and Mika Vainio. If Powell didn't exist, you suspect someone would have to invent him.
