Call Super is the primary moniker of Joseph Richmond Seaton, a DJ and musician from London who has carved out his own place in the landscape of electronic music. Defined by a meticulous approach to the composition, production, art direction and presentation of his work, every release encapsulates Joseph’s idiosyncratic vision. It is a colourful world that gives life to the shadows and throws a mist over the boundaries that have become so commonplace in electronic music.
Alongside his work as Ondo Fudd for influential label The Trilogy Tapes, his collaboration with Beatrice Dillon for Hessle Audio and two releases for Dekmantel, he has been compared to Ricardo Villalobos, Jon Hassell and Brian Eno. His second LP Arpo arrived in 2017 and was greeted to similar praise to his first, with The Guardian hailing it as “outstanding” and DJ magazine naming it Album of the Year.
This all stands alongside Seaton’s revered work as a DJ. His ability to craft sets known for their hypnotic intensity and musical breadth has brought him across the world and been recently showcased on BBC Radio 1’s The Essential Mix. His versatility is seen in the range of his schedule, from headline slots at Sónar festival’s 25th anniversary in Barcelona, to his regular appearances at the Golden Pudel, Hamburg’s famous sweatbox and Berlin’s Panorama Bar.
