Thursday 10th May – Sub-Culture presents: 2562 (When In Doubt/Tectonic)
Line Up: 2562, Drunk Monk, ChaCha, Didje, Ubec + guests TBC
Mid-week Sub-Culture transmission!! 2562!!!!
Imagine a head-on collision between freestyle rhythms, soundsystem shaking bass, emotive chords and unusual sampling tactics… or just forget about it. The music of 2562 – aka Berlin-based Dutchman Dave Huismans, the number being his former zipcode in The Hague – keeps surprising anyone with a keen ear for new electronic music right because it escapes the usual categories.
Pacey and futuristic bass transmissions such as ‘Kameleon’, ‘Techno Dread’, ‘Flashback’ and ‘Dinosaur’, released on DJ Pinch’s highly respected Tectonic label, found their way onto the decks of everyone from Kode9, Benji B and Mary Anne Hobbs to house/techno veterans Anthony Shake Shakir, Francois K and Laurent Garnier.
Known for a true love of dj’ing, tight mixing skills and wide selection in an uptempo style, 2562 is not another producer-turned-dj, but a proper selector since years, who enjoys making a trip out of a set, mixing up brand new cuts fresh from the studio with unexpected house and techno gems. He plays regularly at high profile clubs such as Berghain/Panoramabar (Berlin), Fabric (London) and The Bunker (New York), as well as bass-strongholds Subloaded, FWD, Sub Dub and numerous festivals and underground nights all over the world – from Australia to Japan and from the USA to Russia.
With his new imprint, When In Doubt, 2562 is pushing his sound even further and making it even harder to categorize his unique take on electronic music. Sub-Culture have been waiting for this event for a long long time now, and we are sure it will not disappoint!
