Against the Clock is a series where we give an artist 10 minutes in the studio and see what they come up with. You can watch all the past episodes here.

Kamera is the latest signing to Erol Alkan’s Phantasy Sound stable, where he’s just followed up his 2015 debut Arc with Ventoux, four tracks of head-tripping techno and drifting sci-fi drones. In the studio Kamera cut his teeth on the classic Akai MPC sequencer, but after hunting for something similar he discovered the Elektron Octatrack.

“It took a while for me get my head around it but I use it for everything now – drums, synths and anything sample-based,” he told FACT TV. “The sequencer is so powerful, you can change every step. You can literally make every sample sound different.”

Kamera went Against The Clock with just his Octatrack and a synth app on his iPhone. The episode was shot at his studio in North London before he headed off to play a set at Bugged Out.
