Well, one of experimental electronic dance music (EEDM)’s shining lights is back with a new record called SPORT, which is out on XL RECORDINGS. Lest you thought that Oscar Powell had given up making some of the dankest beat music being made today for a career in billboard creation, here’s SPORT to quell your fears. “Junk” is the track I’m fondest of thus far. With it’s wobbly synths, Mark E. Smith samples(!), and gee I dunno, maybe the 1:27 mark, I dare you to disagree. Maybe you’re one of those Albini/ Trump types, clinging to old models, unwilling to change. Good luck with that if so. The rest of us can enjoy the ecstatic funky rhythmic sounds of POWELL.
