RECORD OF THE WEEK: Call Super - Nervous Sex Traffic [Dekmantel]

J.R. Seaton debuts on Dekmantel’s eponymous record label and continues his superb run of form with two sprawling sonic journeys. While his recent release for The Trilogy Tapes (as Ondo Fudd) featured beatless, clarinet-driven hazes and Crash Bandicoot-esque riddims, this 12” finds him focusing on using his trademark dense, melody-driven soundscapes to get them dancefloors moving.

As Call Super, he builds and maintains an exquisite groove throughout the 9 minutes of Nervous Sex Traffic, deploying what must certainly be the most gorgeous bleeps of the year over of one of his classiest house structures.

Mount Grace then cuts loose with the percussion, programming weighty kicks with those classic Call Super snares into an electro-influenced pattern, whilst warm strings submerge half-melodies that leave you craving for more.
