Abstract: We present a consistent Kaluza-Klein truncation of D=11 supergravity on anarbitrary seven-dimensional Sasaki-Einstein space SE 7 to a D=4 theorycontaining a metric, a gauge-field, a complex scalar field and a real scalarfield. We use this D=4 theory to construct various black hole solutions thatdescribe the thermodynamics of the d=3 CFTs dual to skew-whiffed AdS 4 X SE 7solutions. We show that these CFTs have a rich phase diagram, includingholographic superconductivity with, generically, broken parity and timereversal invariance. At zero temperature the superconducting solutions arecharged domain walls with a universal emergent conformal symmetry in the farinfrared.
