Podcast 185: 2562

Over the past few years, Dutch producer Dave Huismans (a.k.a. 2562) has carved himself a solid niche in the murky territory that sits between the worlds of dubstep and techno. While he’s best known for his heady, low-end explorations, he also indulges a love for (slightly) clubbier sounds under his A Made Up Sound moniker. His upcoming album, Fever, finds him delving into yet another genre—disco. Well, sort of. Although every sound from his new full-length originated from a vintage slab of disco vinyl, Huismans still manages to sound like himself. He’s also set to embark on a lengthy North American tour this week—the dates are posted below—so we figured that now would be a good time to solicit his participation in the XLR8R podcast series. As one might predict, the mix isn’t easy to pin down, as Huismans bounces between various house, techno, and post-dubstep sounds, although his preference for subtlety and detailed production shines through regardless of genre. Things do get darker and crunchier as the podcast proceeds, but the quality never wanes.
