The opening track from N to The Power's debut album AUTOGENƎSIƧ now has an official video.
“Supertonic” is a case in point. A loping, Afro-tronic study in fast-moving motionlessness, the song exploits the mesmerizing effect of superimposed rhythms—“fours and threes and fives and sixes and 12’s, all happily co-existing against each other,” is how Leyh describes it—against a static harmonic backdrop. The percussive piston driving the piece is a rhythmic motif typically played, in West African music, on a djembe but here played on guitar. - Mark Dery, from the AUTOGENESIS liner notes.
