Under the 2562 codename, Dutchman Dave Huismans aka A Made Up
Sound has been integral to deviant dancefloors since 2007. The otherworldly yet
lifelike The New Today is 2562's fourth album and presents his first new material
in this guise since 2012's Air Jordan EP, which was also self-released on his When
In Doubt imprint. As with that last EP, The New Today was sketched out during a
trip abroad -- a six week stay in New York in late summer 2013 -- and later
arranged at his home studio in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Composed as a narrative
collage drawing upon and splicing from an eclectic library of early European
synth experiments, new age tapes, musique concr?te, Krautrock, post-punk,
obscure electro-pop and other largely forgotten and out of print music, The New
Today loosely references the novel of ideas tradition of writing as a restless, eight-track drift bolstered and propelled by his signature texturhythms. From the humid
concr?te drone sphere of ''Arrival'' through the hypnotizing gyrations of
''Terraforming,'' to the airborne rhythmelodies and mercurial syncopation of
''Vibedoctor'' and centerpiece ''Utopia,'' the tension and conflict of aural assault
''Drumroll'' and ultimately the celestial sweep of closing chapter, ''New Life,'' it's
equally the most diffuse, cohesive and involving LP in his celebrated cache.
