Netherlands born Dave Huismans came onto the dubstep scene loud and proud in 2008 under the guise of 2562 with his critically acclaimed debut album for Tectonic, 'Aerial.' The album showcased tracks that were constantly underpinned by a deep as possible sub bass, that was playfully punctuated with hypnotic 2-step percussion and with a myriad of stylistic influences and ideas. It also helped 2562 establish himself as an artist of innovation.
Since then, he has continued to produce broken-techno-come-dubstep with a more colourful second LP, 'Unbalance,' on Tectonic as 2562 but also through various releases as A Made Up Sound, which also became the moniker of Huismans' own imprint through which he released a series of heralded 12"s. Chosing to release the third 2562 LP, 'Fever,' on another self supported imprint called When In Doubt, he presented the venture as an experiment in micro-sampling as every single sound used on the album was taken from an old disco record. The result was anything but disco, instead Huismans crunched together synths and syncopated rhythms that again set him apart as a unique sound and force in eclectic bass music.
It's fitting then he’s found his place in our disco haven under Craig Richard’s The Nothing Special banner on Saturday 25th June. Joining him on the Room Two lineup is Conforce, who will also be playing live, and of course our Craig Richards himself who is set to echo the left field electronics of his fresh fabric CD as The Nothing Special.
