This is the debut full-length release by Dave Huismans aka 2562. After releasing two of the fastest-selling 12"s on Tectonic in 2007, it was a natural step to drop something truly stunning. If you can imagine a perfect marriage between Benga or Skream-style rhythm and bass with Basic Channel soundscapes -- you will realize why everyone is getting so excited about this album. Aerial follows the two-track vinyl teaser Techno Dread/Enforcers which are featured on the CD version, alongside the lead tracks "Channel Two" and "Kameleon," both drawn from the 2007 singles that found their way onto the decks of everyone from Mary Anne Hobbs, Skream, Kode9, Laurent Garnier, and anyone else with their ears primed for heavy bass, deep funk and sublime dub. Aerial ticks all the boxes for a varied, multi-faceted debut, melding genres with a distinctive production style that is smart, inventive and entirely futuristic. Dutch-born, Huismans borrows his name from his Hague home district code "2562" but takes his musical influence from further afield: Detroit, Kingston, Croydon, and Berlin. Huismans' previous incarnations have included the dubbed-out broken-beat of Dogdaze on the Flying High label and more recently as A Made Up Sound -- making serious moves in techno on Shed's Hardwax-affiliated Subsolo imprint. If 2007 was a year for Burial and Pinch, then summer 2008 surely has 2562 written all over it.
