Published Feb 15, 2017Call Super, aka Joe R. Seaton, is a London-based producer who has been called to helm the latest instalment in the legendary fabric mix series. Included in fabric 92 are cuts from Beatrice Dillon, Photek, Carl Craig and Yves Tumor, among original cuts from the producer's personal catalogue.
According to the artist, fabric 92 was drafted with the dwindling hours of a club night in mind. Across a hazy 70 minutes, the London-based producer eschews convention and emphasizes his versatility as he navigates the "rollercoaster of the peak hours," after the crowd has "evolved to those in need of undulating epiphanies." The occasionally sparse and ominous mix prioritizes IDM-style synth chirps and driving percussive elements equally, evoking Call Super's signature hopscotch between functional and experimental productions.
The son of a New Orleans jazz clarinettist, Seaton's curiosity for music was driven by a childhood playing Spanish guitar and piano before being experiencing teenage revelations in the London club scene. With such a wealth of exposure in his musical upbringing, it's no surprise that this mix boasts the instrumental range that it does, not to mention such a precise and intuitively executed pace.
