The previously vinyl-only releases are now available digitally via XL.
Released last year on his label Diagonal, the EPs mark a shift away from the London artist’s earlier post-punk sampling hijinks, and hint at a fresh direction for Powell, touching on elements of jungle, hardcore and drum ‘n’ bass. Stream both EPs below.
In a press release, Powell says, “Some of these tracks are the first time I forced myself not to fall back on old processes and I would say they reveal more of myself as an individual”.
New Beta Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 are available on streaming sites now. Watch the incredible video for New Beta Vol. 1 track ‘Wormhole’, and check out the album artwork and tracklists for both EPs below. Revisit our FACT Singles Club featuring Powell and Russel Haswell.
