2562 10 Titles
Ask any close follower of contemporary electronic music about its most consistently singular and innovative artists of recent years and it's likely the name of Dave Huismans will pop up. Whether it's under his zipcode alias 2562 or as A Made Up Sound, he pulls off that rare thing: surprising with nearly every new release, while maintaining an identity unmistakeably his own.

With one foot in the true school techno and house he grew up with and the other boldly stepping into the unknown, there's a proper sense of purpose to his music. It displays an adventurous, often wildly idiosyncratic take on composition and rhythm that makes for both intricate experiments and the most gloriously strange peaktime bangers around, as demonstrated on the 12" format through his own A Made Up Sound label series and guest appearances on labels like Delsin, Clone, Livity Sound and The Trilogy Tapes.

Over the course of three landmark albums as 2562, meanwhile, he's laid out a highly influential vision of broken rhythms and sampling trickery since 2007, initially pioneering the crossover between techno and the then-emerging sounds of early dubstep on Tectonic Records, before steering ever further away from any genre outlines, making it more personal at every turn: from deconstructing the disco of his childhood years in building the Fever album (2011) from its particles, to soundtracking a trip to the Middle East on the Air Jordan EP (2012), both of which were self-released on his When In Doubt platform.

His fourth album The New Today, described by himself as "an ambient album gone thoroughly awry," loosely references the novel of ideas tradition of writing and was developed from a series of live performances in collaboration with visual artist Heleen Blanken.
