A Made Up Sound aka. 2562 aka. Dave Huismans, is a producer who in the space of barely a couple of releases has managed to make both the techno and dubstep communities sit up and take note. His 2008 album "Aerial" is regarded as a landmark for dubstep. Producer Dave Huismans hails from the Hague and operates just outside the genre’s British breeding ground, allowing him to mold his own aesthetic from materials previously exhibited in locales from Bristol to Berlin. Last year he returned with another great album on the Tectonic imprint "Unbalace".
Every now and then, Huismans will use self-imposed restrictions to get his creative juices flowing. For instance, on Shortcuts, his 2008 album as A Made Up Sound, he chose to devote only one night to each track, as a way to find out if he could "use compulsion in a positive way." The new album "Fever" was produced under a similar guideline: all of the sounds are sourced from disco records released in the late '70s and early '80s (hence the title). The album will be Huisman's fourth to date, and his third as 2562, a guise he tends to use for more dubstep-oriented material. It will be the second release yet on his recently established label, When In Doubt.
Delta Funktionen is Niels Luinenburg's main musical project which has the focus on the deeper side of life. No fashion, no trends, just taking it back to where it came from and pushing it into new directions, still with much respect for the past. Releases saw daylight on Ann Aimee (Delsin's little sister) and Field Records.
Phantom Regiment is a side project between Niels and Damian Keane & Dave Miller from the Audiosculpture label. Three different backgrounds, one passion. Releases saw moonlight on Dynamic Reflection and Concern Records.
As a DJ, Niels plays pretty diverse. Depending on time, crowd and location, he makes a selection from his wide vinyl collection, ranging from deep and dubby sounds towards Berlin/Detroit influenced techno, on occassion you will discover a hint of more housy orientated sounds in his sets.
