Dave Huismans, the producer behind aliases A Made Up Sound and 2562 (as well as his earlier work as Dogdaze), doesn't care much for labels.
As 2562 and A Made Up Sound, Huismans can be said to represent the more tasteful end of dubstep, along with artists like Pervelist, Untold, and Synkro. However, in this case, tasteful is hardly the same as boring, as Huismans introduces elements in his sound that challenge and disorient. In that sense, he can be said to be one of the logical successors of the sound pioneered by Detroit artists like Moodyman and Theo Parrish, albeit working with a sound palette as indebted to UK dubstep and garage as it is to classic Detroit house and techno.
Working in the tradition of classic Detroit-styled techno and house, Dave Huismans makes music that blurs the line between dubstep, garage, minimal and deep house.
After paving the way with early releases such as the "Sunday" EP on Philpot Records, Huismans has gone on to release a handful of collections and LPs which have won him a place as the producer to watch in the ever-blurring space between dubstep, techno, house and garage.
