Elmo Crumb is another pseudonym from JR Seaton (who is also Call Super and Ondo Fudd): another delivery mechanism for high-quality melodic techno that reaches lovingly into the depths. I’m Still Dizzy has firm 4/4’s, but so much more going on besides that you could detach from the dance altogether and still give your ears a great time. 12” release on The Trilogy Tapes.

8/10 Laurie Staff review, 21 December 2016
So Ian tells me that this Elmo Crumb is actually Call Super and someone else called Ondo Fudd doing a little collab thing. See, what he doesn’t get is that Ondo Fudd is actually Call Super too, so I guess he means that it’s Call Super collaborating with himself. Send any and all complaints, anything at all, to email@example.com.
This came in alongside some other housey thing on The Trilogy Tapes, I can’t remember what it was, but this completely outshines it. The A side is some sorta minimal melodic techno thing with some distant arcing pads underpinned by some driving 4x4 kick / percussion playoff, the sound sources all quite natural and crystal clear. Woven across this nice but fairly typical foundation are myriad itches and scratches of microsound, skittering up and down in a complex but sparse patchwork. The B side takes this formula to the next level, with a slightly more housey feel complete with dubby stabs and a sort of tuned percussion bassline. It progresses in a really refreshing way, mixing between the elements perfectly to keep interest. I’m surprised that no one seems to care about this one.
