Primarily known as Call Super, Joseph Richmond-Seaton has received acclaim for his inventive, atmospheric techno tracks.
Originally from London but based in Berlin, he crafts experimental dance music that is often smooth and lush but also melancholy and tense, recalling numerous '90s Warp and second-wave Detroit techno artists but updated for the 2010s underground dance scene. He debuted in 2011 with the Staircase EP on Five Easy Pieces, which was followed by No Episode on Throne of Blood (2012). He also remixed tracks by Mock & Toof, Dillon, and Renaissance Man. Call Super's 2013 EP The Present Tense was the inaugural release on Fabric's sister label Houndstooth. This was followed by the harder, electro-influenced 12"s Black Octagons and Depicta/Acephale II. He made his full-length debut with 2014's Suzi Ecto, which took his sound in a more free-form, less club-oriented direction than his singles and EPs. Also that year, he premiered his Ondo Fudd alias with an EP on The Trilogy Tapes called Coup d'État. As Call Super, he released Migrant (Houndstooth) and Fluenka Mitsu (Nous) in 2015. The year 2016 brought Nervous Sex Traffic (Dekmantel) and New Life Tones (Houndstooth); he also returned to the Trilogy Tapes for another Ondo Fudd EP, Blue Dot, as well as I'm Still Dizzy as Elmo Crumb. In 2017, Call Super's installment of Fabric's long-running mix CD series, Fabric 92, was issued; his sophomore full-length, Arpo, also on Houndstooth, followed later that year. ~ Paul Simpson, Rovi
