2562 In The Mix for URB

With both [2562 and A Made Up Sound] I will try to stray from the path and see how far the audience is willing to come with me. I’m not there to spoil everyone’s evening, so I’m happy to play an all-house or all-bass set if it suits the occasion best. As long as it’s music I’m truly feeling. I will never compromise that. No DJ should.

I have been fortunate enough to catch Dave Huisman perform a DJ set as ‘2562’ and I can promise you that like any of his releases, his work comes a long way from spoiling anybody’s evening. Even the bro-est of brosteppers stop in appreciation for the unique sounds coming from the Netherlands based producer.

Recently he has contributed a short interview and mix for URB Magazine. A stiff selection laden with originals from Huisman in addition to unreleased material from Boddika, Hessle Audio, and Falty DL. Full tracklist available beneath the fold.

Space Dimension Controller – Temporary Thrillz

I have written about Space Dimension Controller on this blog before; he has graced listeners this year with a brilliant release on Royal Oak, and contributed a worthy selection for the Fact Magazine podcast earlier this year. R&S has announced a forthcoming release on their label from SDC slated for October 16th entitled ‘Temporary Thrillz.’ SDC himself contributes the synopsis of the releases’ concept below:

By night, Mr. 8040 abandons his time travel device to DJ in clubs all over the planet. Inside these clubs are some of the most beautiful women you could imagine. For a Space Dimension Controller it’s a lot of temptation, but when it’s time to leave the club for his landing bay there can only be one.

This is the story of one of those nights…

A night when Mr. 8040 found a beautiful woman and promised her everything… A DJ booth where he contemplated ending his constant seduction of easy women… and an early morning where things returned to reality for Mr. 8040 and he made his exit, much to the sadness of the beautiful woman he was leaving behind…

Yes, for Mr. 8040 things are easy to get started, but at the end of the night he finds it hard to understand if it was worth it at all. He has tried to stop before, but he just can’t help it. For no matter how hard people try, you’ve gotta have those Temporary Thrillz.

If you are unfamiliar with the sounds of Space Dimension Controller, be sure to pick up his freely downloadable release ‘Unidentified Flying Oscillator’ available for download via Archive.org

2. Kaleidoscopic Ecstasy
3. 2EZ (Autopilot’s Lament)
4. Transatlantic Landing Bay

LWE Podcast 57 – 2562 v. A Made Up Sound

Little White Earbuds cotinues its podcast series with an exciting installment from Dutch-based 2562; who has been constantly blurring the lines between techno and dubstep with two amazing full legnth releases ‘Aerial’ and ‘Unbalance’ both on the Tectonic label. I have been fortunate enough to catch Huisman’s DJ work once before when the Atlanta Dubstep crew brought him through Atlanta a little over a year ago. Hands down one of the most mind-blowing DJ sets I have had the chance to see, and since then have made a concerted effort to try and keep and ear out for any new output.

Modeselektions Vol. 1

Modeselektor returns in November with a very special collection of future bass influenced tracks for their new Modeselektions series. This looks absolutely serious as the German duo have tapped new tunes from such genre-bending innovators as 2562, Shed, Bok Bok, and Ramadanman in addition to tapping always exciting talents like Mala, Marcel Dettmann, and long time favorites of Modeselektor Siruismo. It’s rare I can get this excited about a forthcoming release; purely based on the fact that each of the producers selected is phenomenal and I don’t have a clue what most, if any of these tunes sound like yet. Obviously my imagination is running rampant awaiting the release of this compilation, we will have to stay patient until November 5th sadly.

“The main concern in all of this was the idea of defying genres and the usual beef between different camps, i.e. to create without borders and be completely freestyle,” say the duo. “When we now look at the line-up on this CD, it pretty much goes down like oil.” All of the tracks onModeselektion Vol.01 will also see release in a series of 12-inches, including an eight-track LP on transparent vinyl that’s limited to 666 copies.”

Modeselektor has posted a video, and complete tracklist online in preparation of the release:

Resident Advisor 203: 2562

Dave Huismans brings the techno and dubstep fusion on this week’s RA podcast.
Of the artists to emerge from the dialogue between techno and dubstep, The Hague’s Dave Huismans must be rated as one of the finest. His production roots are actually in broken beat and his Dogdaze moniker, but 2007 saw him launch the 2562 project on Pinch’s Tectonic Recordings, forging techno sounds to dubstep beat structures to great effect. While debut album Aerial was fairly singular and streamlined in its approach to the fusion of techno and dubstep, his sophomore effort showed a totally different side to Huismans’ sound. With more overt references to UK garage and house, Unbalance managed to scrape into the top ten of last year’s RA albums poll, with Oli Marlow calling it ‘a zenith for techno-tinged dubstep in 2009.’
He’s also been keeping busy with his A Made Up Sound moniker which operates in a slightly more conventional house and techno vein. Last year’s ‘Rework’ on his own A Made Up Sound imprint and the four-track EP on Clone were essential releases if you like your 4/4 beats to be swung and bass-heavy, and those two adjectives are definitely something that you say about his effort for this week’s RA podcast.
