Black Octagons

Houndstooth
Fusing conventional techno with experimental elements is a difficult task, but Call Super rises to the challenge on 'Black Octagons'. 'Informer' has straight kicks and rolling snares, but it's the de-tuned synth line that makes it so off centre and unusual. Meanwhile, the title track is built on steely electro drums, a stepping rhythm and bursts of machine-gun percussion, but Call Super lets the track break into a dusty synth solo. He has also made one of 2013's most beautifully wispy pieces of electronic music in the shape of 'Dewsbury Severance'.
