Sub-Culture is very excited to present 2562 aka A Made Up Sound!

Over the course of three landmark albums on Pinch’s mighty Tectonic label and his own When In Doubt imprint, Dave Huismans has laid out a singular and highly influential vision of broken rhythms, off time percussion, crazed sampling and field recording, re-inventing techno, disco and bass music at each and every turn.

Having released on Tectonic, Martyn’s 3024 and the legendary Clone Bassment Series, and with support across the board from the likes of Kode9 and Benji B to house/techno veterans Anthony Shake Shakir and Francois K, he is currently operating on his own label and continuing to stun audiences with his unique and destructive dj sets and fluid live shows. 2562 sounds like very little else out there…
