Someone say Dubstep? is about to get Deep. REAL DEEP.
We are talking about the legendary 2562 – and his maiden voyage to Perth October 16 down at SHAPE!
THIS IS HUGE.
Get pumped for a head-on collision between soundsystem cracking sub bass, techno-infused offbeat rhythms, moody chords and unusual sampling ethics.
The music of 2562 has surprised dubstep, garage and techno communities alike right because it escapes easy categorizing.
Funky and futuristic uptempo transmissions such as Channel Two, Kameleon, Techno Dread and Hijack (released on DJ Pinch’s much respected Tectonic Recordings and Martyn’s label 3024) found their way onto the decks of everyone from Kode9, Appleblim, Mala and Mary Anne Hobbs to veterans Francois K, Pole and Laurent Garnier. 2562’s debut album, Aerial ended up in many 2008 year lists and was followed by experimental techno and house releases for his other project A Made Up Sound, appearing on Shed’s Subsolo label and Clone Records.
Currently he’s preparing the release of a second 2562 album later this year, for which the intergalactic machine funk of recent 12” Love in Outer Space serves as an unbalancing taster.
Known for an energetic dj’ing style and wide knowledge of electronic music, 2562 is a selector who enjoys making a trip out of a dj-set, going across the board and mixing up fresh dubs with unexpected classics. He played in clubs like Berghain (Berlin), Fabric (London) and 11/Trouw (Amsterdam), at dubstep/bass-strongholds Subloaded, FWD and Sub Dub, and at numerous festivals and underground locations from Scandinavia to Japan and from the US to Russia.
Get ready for a true journey, with 2562 driving the wheels.
