A made up sound


Dave Huismansは90年代にその他多くの高い理想を追求するテクノ/ハウスのDJと同様に成長する傍ら、大胆で未知な領域へも踏み込み、特異で独特なリズムを用いたトラックメイクで広義な意味でのテクノコミュニティに新鮮な空気を持ち込んだ。
2008年よりA Made Up Soundとして”Ahead / Endgame”、”Take The Plunge”などの代表作はもちろんのこと、オランダのテクノシーンの中心的レーベルDelsinやClone、Shedが運営するSubsolo、ロンドンの”The Trilogy Tapes”などの独創的で素晴らしいレーベルから数々のインプリントを残している。
またLivity SoundやMetalheadz、Berceuse Heroiqueらのレーベル、そしてAmon Tobinの作品のリミックスも手がけるなど、アーティストからの信頼も厚い。

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, Dave Huismans 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" on the self-titled label series that's been his homebase since 2008.
Along the way he's released with an impressive range of seminal labels, such as Holland's techno strongholds Delsin and Clone, Shed's shortlived Subsolo imprint and London's ever surprising The Trilogy Tapes.
Additionally, his prized remix work for a.o. Livity Sound, Metalheadz, Amon Tobin and Berceuse Heroique has made him one of dance music's most reliable remixers.
As a DJ he is no less versatile, drawing from over twenty years of passion for electronic music to join the dots between past, present and future. Over the years he's played in pretty much every country in Europe, made regular appearances at key festivals like Unsound, CTM and Freerotation and toured North America and Asia several times.
