D/B Recommended: 2562 @ Gretchen Berlin | Friday, 04.11.2011

Dave Huismans, better known by his stage name as 2562, is a musician from The Hague, Netherlands.

[audio:2562 – Juxtapose.mp3]Huisman’s project 2562 is characterized by a post-garage skippiness, with rolling bass and hyper-edited snares learned from broken beat, a sense of space and echo learned from dub, and a devastating 4×4 anchorage and attention to detail from techno old and new.

Owner of perhaps the most nondescript moniker in dubstep, Dave Huismans created a stir when his debut for Pinch’s Tectonic Recordings first surfaced. ‘Channel Two’ marked the point at which an emergent sound became increasingly identifiable, a locus point for the growing cluster of producers smearing the edges between the formerly distinct realms of techno and dubstep.

Nowadays, it’s a full-blown movement, as artists like Peverlist, Martyn, Appleblim and Pinch have been putting out numerous releases in this fertile area between the two genres.

With a trademark percussive style which offsets precision beat edits with generous swathes of melody, 2562’s own fusion of techno, garage, broken beat and dub has rapidly found favour across a wide spectrum of listeners. Performing under the dual aliases of 2562 and A Made Up Sound, Huismans now finds himself booked to play at events as varied as the influences from which he draws his inspiration.
