Dubstep is all the rage these days, and releases like the debut full-length from Dave “2562” Huismans make it easy to see why. In his unique marriage of dub bass and minimal techno timing, he reveals a world where Dr. Alex Patterson met Burial at Laurent Garnier’s studio over tea. Dave’s basslines are tricky, more warped than Paris Hilton’s sense of class, and smothered in continually echoing pads inspired by classic reggae. The effort to keep things moving as 120 BPM never allows the album to drift into doldrums, as the genre is prone to do in LP form. It’s an impressive introduction. 2562 actually buried Burial in my collection.
