Bygones is the final release on Dave Huismans' A Made Up Sound and it brings the label to a close on a somewhat understated note. That said, it also highlights the fact that the Dutch producer has possibly outgrown the broken beat techno style that he is best known for. The title track centres on rolling tribal drums, clean, hissing percussion and the kind of straight, linear groove that Huismans may not have previously contemplated. Meanwhile, "Peace Offering" sees him push farther into this deep sound, with atmospheric chords unfolding over a stripped back, minimal rhythm. It's a subtle finale for one of electronic music's most ionic labels.
