A Made Up Sound is an alias of Dave Huismans, used mainly for his leftfield house and techno productions; in 2009, the Dutch producer established a label by the same name, and has since put out nine of his own EPs on it. News has now broken that the imprint is set to close. Huismans explains: "Initially I started it as an outlet to freely release whatever, whenever, but as I went along, the label kind of became a purpose in itself, something I enjoyed building over time. A body of work with a beginning and an end, if you will. It was meant to be a finite thing early on."
With the closure of the label in mind, Huismans will release one final EP—Bygones—and a retrospective compilation. The latter will be a comprehensive anthology of the imprint's entire body of work, and also include previously unreleased cut "P.P.B."
A Made Up Sound (2009-2016) will be available on CD and digital formats from October 21, followed by Bygones, available as 12" vinyl from November 4.
