Sweetback - (7:11) 126 BPM

Review: Dave Huismans swiftly follows on from that incendiary 50 Weapons 12" with an equally explosive return to the Clone Basement Series. One of the first names to contribute to the series back in 2009, both "Hang Up" and "Sweetback" find Huismans eschewing the jagged, garage flecked drill techno dynamism of last year's "Take The Plunge" for some of his "most banging, straight-forward club material to date". The lead track is bristling with uneasy liquid funk, heavily diced Hancock vibes cascading around the buccaneering drum patterns with glee. "Sweetback," meanwhile, creeps out from the murky depths, driven by dust battered kicks and gnarly, sinewy analogue twists - there's no greater philosophy at work here, it's simply dark techno for dark rooms.

Review: Dave '2562' Huismans returns to Clone Basement Series for the first time since 2012, with another installment of the ongoing Archive series. As usual, there's plenty to enjoy, with opener "Cheater VIP" - much sought-after since he dropped it in his Boiler Room set last year - providing the near perfect fusion of funk-fuelled techno rhythms, metallic percussion and industrial textures. "Funkstation" is an altogether creepier, deeper proposition, with sinewy strings and discordant horn samples complimenting a sludgy groove. The rolling intensity of "Us" ups the creepy stakes even further, helped, in no small part, by some particularly ghostly cymbals.

Review: A Made Up Sound man Dave Huismans is not messing around on this 12", his first outing on Delsin for six years. Opener "Thin Air" may contain creepy melodies, strange samples and curious orchestral samples, but these largely play second fiddle to a booming techno rhythm. "All Out" and "Waybackmachine" also hit home hard, with trademark rhythmic madness and densely layered chords combining to create two hectic and intense broken techno smashers. Even the EP's most laidback moment, the noticeably deeper "I Repeat", owes its' power to a surging sub-bass line and some snappy post-dubstep rhythms, rather than its' faintly unsettling electronics and melancholic musical elements.

Review: Fans of Dave Huismans might know him better by his 2562 alias, but this project is another thing altogether. An opportunity to pursue his interest in all things dubstep, he's previously released albums of songs all composed within one evening. This EP comes more fully formed though, and is right on the money. The infectious shuffle of title tune "Sun Touch" is as fresh as anything out there at the moment. Fans of Joy Orbison, Martyn and Kode 9 should take note.

BUY
Peace Offering - (8:12) 124 BPM
from $1.98
Review: 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.

Review: New transmissions from Dave Huismans - whether under the 2562 moniker or as A Made Up Sound - are seemingly all too rare, but are always guaranteed to cause the kind of excitement usually reserved for big budget summer blockbusters, albeit without the inevitable sense of disappointment. After Hours is a welcome return then and sees Huismans further muddy the waters of definition when it comes to A Made Up Sound; both tracks are characterised by a more steady approach than we're used to from Huismans, with the title track described as offering a "brooding alternative soundtrack to that most underrated of Scorsese movies" (complete with film dialogue samples), while "What Preset" provides an abstracted combination of confrontational bass stabs and broken kick drums that seem to explode like landmines. Like the recent output of the Livity Sound trio, it's a release that explores techno's slower possibilities without compromising on impact.

Review: While others are worried about 'slow months' or releasing at the right time, the Sued imprint has a knack for coming out with records when you least expect them. Moreover, they happen to also be absolutely sick, each and every time. This time, SW and SVN's label sees the latter team up with Dynamo Dreesen - long-time associate and co-member of the Dresvn unit - and their newly formed producer/friend, A Made Up Sound. Yup, we never expected this either before their debut as a team on Dynamo's own Acido label. "Track 1" is a head-driven, stripped down kinda lick that spins and coils its subtle bells and lo-fi bass around a steady kick, before nose-diving into a funkier terrain; "Track 2" rattles and bangs its tribal percussion without a steady four-to-the-floor, while "Track 3" shifts everything down to a murky, slo-mo jam made up of grey-scaled low tones, flangered percussion and, well, the trio's inimitable style. Recommended, as always.
