  • A Made Up Sound is closing his self-titled label with a compilation and 12-inch. The Dutchman minted the alias back in 2006 before launching a label of the same name a few years later. A double-CD and digital package will compile key cuts from ten records released between 2009 and 2016 along with a previously unreleased track and two tunes from a forthcoming 12-inch, titled Bygones / Peace Offering, which will also close the label in November. Huismans described the final 12-inch as "a significant piece of the puzzle... it's like coming full circe" and claimed the label was always intended to have an expiry date: "It was meant to be a finite thing early on. I think this has encouraged me to try and push its sound as far as I could. If you know you only have so many records left to make, you're extra keen to make each of them count." The tracks featured on the compilation have been remastered and in some cases remixed and edited, while the CD edition will come with a poster featuring artwork culled from the label's 12-inch releases.
