The following is my guide to all the wonderful events taking place during the Strøm 2011. I'll be writing about various happenings on here as well as on the official Strøm blog , so expect a lot of crossposting (and great music!). Morten from Regnsky will cover the other half of the festival on that blog, too, so there should be plenty of exciting things happening throughout the week. I wonder how we ever get anything done. Admittedly, it’s summertime and things are pretty quiet at the moment, but look at all those [...]

zero" // podcast #045 - DJ Mix by Zanshin This week's podcast comes from Gregor Ladenhauf, better known as Zanshin , and as one half of Viennese house duo Ogris Debris . Those who only know Ladenhauf from cheeky club hits like ' Raid The Itch ' and ' Salty Womb ' or his club-rocking stage appearances with partner Daniel Kohlmeigner, might expect a similar style of minimal house music from his solo productions. His Zanshin project is however firmly dedicated [...]
With techno and its many subgenres moving into more explosive, dynamic samples and sound manipulations, it is always great to hear an artist that combines the minimalist, percussive-heavy style of techno, with the more modern, dubstep sounds of today. 25622s Fever does just that. David Huisman's production is enticing. "Winamp Melodrama," and its spastic, staccato percussive hits are the first thing to hit you, followed by warped synths and spacey loops. "Juxtapose" is a combination of short snare hits, bubbly synths and reverberated background sounds. "Aquatic Family Affair" will take you on an underwater [...]
This how about this for a great concept album? 2562 pushes the envelope to Jiffy sized proportions with his re-interpretation of underground Disco yes DISCO from the mid seventies to the early 80's with his own birth year 1979 as the gravitational point. The whole thing is based on one simple rule: every single sound no matter how large small or seemingly insignificant or equally as mind-blowingly amazing originates from a disco record. No additional synthesisers, drum computers or other samples sources are involved, at all. So the concept is [...]

This week's Friday Night Party Starter (Vol. 2) comes from another Hessle Audio producer, Blawan. Back in March we featured Blawan's EP, Bohla . Today's track, "Getting Me Down," (unreleased) was featured on 2562's XLR8R mix back in February - appropriately placed to transition from the intro tracks to the foot stompin' anthems. Blawan takes Brandy samples to whole nother extreme. This track deserves a wheel or two - a guaranteed head bopper. Blawan - Getting Me Down (Radio Rip - Oneman: Rinse FM) Now listen to it as a part of [...]
[ When In Doubt ] ( buy vinyl ) ( buy CD ) ( buy mp3s ) Dave Huismans spent most of the last year exploring broken house and garage under his A Made Up Sound moniker, an active streak that made his dubstep-oriented 2562 project look all but dead in its tracks. It turns out the prolific Dutchman was just biding his time, and 2011 sees him launching both a new imprint, When In Doubt, and an entire new album as 2562. Preceded by a twelve-inch containing "Aquatic Family Affair" [...]
For his 3rd LP, Dave Huismans, aka 2562 / A Made Up Sound, moved away from the disparate influences of techno towards a more liquid, grooveable swagger. This is notable change from his previous releases, Aerial and Unbalance , which themselves were heavier and spacier - almost dystopian. Fever caters to the dance floor with its disco infusions and shivering bass, exemplified best by the single "Aquatic Family Affairs." You can listen to a promo version of the album via Soundcloud courtesy of Fact Magazine , [...]
For many 2562/A Made Up Sound embodies a great deal of the passion that emanated through dubstep’s early developments. His take on dubstep and broken techno has always been innovative and created a distinctive, expansive sound. But ‘Fever’ is his best work to date. The term Experimental gets thrown around a lot, and I’ve always [...]
Dave Huismans aka A Made Up Sound aka 2562 hat einen Mix für das Dummy Mag gemacht und wir sind mal wieder entzückt. Denn Dave ist nicht nur ein großer Studio-Wizzard, sondern auch ein ebenso großer Wizzard hinter den Decks. Ein Tracklisting wäre auch schön gewesen, so uns unbekannte Killer-Tracks hat er in den Mix rein gequetscht. Das große 2562-Feature gibt es übrigens in der kommenden Ausgabe. 2562 - dummy mix april 2011 by 2562 / A Made Up Sound

I know I've been kind of behind with the Infrasonics posts, and I apologize, but nonetheless, here's a new installment of it. And also, be sure to listen to and download the most recent Dank Radio broadcast "Coa-Chillin'" ; there's a lot of good tunes on there for when you feel like...well...chillin'. 2562 – Fever [Purchase: Bleep | Juno | Beatport ] 2562 - Fever [...]
Fantastic new record out this week from Dave Husiman in his 2562 guise; 'Fever' follows on from previous long players 'Aerial' & 'Unbalance', with production values of the highest order. Strict parameters have been imposed on the construction of 'Fever', with every sound (hat/kick/lick) used being taken from a disco record. 'This guy has found a special balance of soul-tugging swing and technical dexterity which deserves your undivided attentions' Grab 'Fever' here . 2562- Aquatic Family Affair
The long awaited concept album by 2562 has finally dropped. When the album was first touted, we were told it was entirely constructed from disco samples from the 702s and 802s. This is in fact true but you would be hard pushed to find any Earth Wind & Fire in there. What we have instead is an album of slashes and cuts, drop and bends. Every conceivable trick has been used to construct and manipulate the sounds that you hear. Sometime it seems just busy with no apparent framework and at other points it leaves you [...]
Post-garage breaker, Dave Huismans aka 2562 , released his third LP enitled, Fever , sometime last month on his own imprint label, When In Doubt . Dave has really taken a variety of electronic sounds to create his very own; from garage to house to techno to break-beat to post dubstep and to now what some people call 'funky'. His sound can really be labeled under a lot of genres, it's limitless, there's glimpses of many tones in this third album of his. Rolling bass-music, up-beat and hyper-edited snare hits, spacey synths, [...]
