A Made Up Sound
Ask any close follower of contemporary electronic music about its most consistently innovative artists and it’s likely the name of Dutchman Dave Huismans will pop up. For the best part of a decade he’s managed to keep pulling off that rare and elusive thing: breaking new ground with nearly every new release, while maintaining a sound signature unmistakably his own.
With one foot in the techno and house he grew up with as an aspiring DJ in the 90’s and the other boldly stepping into the unknown, he displays an off-kilter, often wildly idiosyncratic approach to rhythm and composition that has made his work a constant breath of fresh air within the wider techno community.
As A Made Up Sound he’s been responsible for some of the most gloriously strange peak-time bangers in recent years, such as the notorious “Ahead/Endgame” whitelabel and the rattling stutterfest “Take The Plunge”.
