New album on the way from 2562, brilliant! They talk about it here...
he makes rollers really instead of big drops, I guess he has alot in common with techno in that respect. He makes alot of sense to me in the mix, I saw him play out a while back and I couldn't stop moving his stuff is so bumping and driving out in a club its just loads of fun, which was almost a suprise after just hearing the album which kind of sounds so sparse, cold and dark. Plus his bass is so MASSIVE on a good rig. I really got into Aerial as well, that and the Appleblim Dubstep Allstars Vol.6 mixpushed me over the edge into exploring more dubstep I think. I'm not sure I've heard much of this apart from the track thats already out 'Love In Outer Space' which is fuckin brilliant! But I'm going to see him again next month next to Jamie Vex'd, Neil Landstrumm, Clark and P45 on one of the best and biggest soundsystems in the country so I'm sure he will play alot of this and I can't wait.
But then I'm a sucker for the kind of rolling techy stuff that Appleblim plays anyway.
Roll on the new 2562, I loved Aerial a lot and Love In Outer Space/Third Wave is even better.
thats alot more organic and technoy, well sometimes anyway the 12"s are but the album is alsorts of things.
it snook out, took me by suprise.

Tis what PR sez.
My copy has nasty 'you are listening to a promo' gubbins on it. BOO.
I find it really difficult to review albums when they've stuck that much promo garbage all over the top - it's ok when it's once or twice in a song but on the new Boys Noize album it goes once every thirty seconds. Makes me uninterested in listening past the first tune.
I'm really looking forward to this, 'Love In Outer Space' is excellent and I enjoyed the launch party a lot - thought 2562 was awesome actually, far more Made Up Sound-ish than his Aerial material in its sheer techno-power. Admittedly it's a hazily remembered night but Ikonika was the best thing though, he did pale in comparison to her utterly brilliant set.
Ramadanman & Ben UFO were dropping a few of her bits the other week they sounded like nothing else.
same with Red Eye
All the big dubstep shops anyway, not seen it anywhere else.
just listen to dubstep radio lots of the DJ's are playing the tracks without promo gubbins all over them haha
I love Aerial, but 2562's set left me rather disappointed. I've no idea how it'll reflect on the record, but it seemed to be mainly double-speed (as in, not typical dubstep, but not D'n'B speed either), 4/4 tracks with heavy, and not particularly wonky, basslines. This wasn't helped by the fact that Kode9 and Ikonika were both incredible that night. So yeah, I definitely look forward to hearing this but I'm also slightly apprehensive.
it sounded like a mad kind of techno with huge amounts of bass, I'd not heard hardly any of the tracks either so I'm persuming they were mostly new 2562 and knowing dubstep people they are maybe even newer than this album haha I wasn't blown away by him, he was damn good like but Jamie Vex'd was on before him and played one of the most far reaching fun sets I've heard.
i thought he was brilliant at the launch. he was the highlight of the evening for me, though i also thought kode9 and others were very good. i thought there was a bit of a slow breakbeat/hardcore sound to some of it, which is fine by me. i was quite underwhelmed by 'aerial', personally. i'd loved quite a few of the 12s but thought as an album it was too linear, and it lacked impact. i obtained a sneaky copy of the new album the other day, but i've yet to listen to it enough to comment.
its a real step up from Aerial, loads more heart, warmth, soul. I bloody love Aerial but this is something else. It really flows, its subtler but still with a huge bass kick.
I can't get enough of it, one day I had it on three times in a row.
Tectonic are brining out the big guns this year.
I think it's waiting in the post at home in London so I'll get it when I go back tomorrow. Can't wait. Been rinsing Shackleton's new one in the meantime though...
First impressions: it's fucking great. Immediately more compelling than Aerial, and lent so much extra weight by the brushes of colour he paints all over it. Much as I loved Aerial it was an album in greyscale whereas Unbalance feels so much brighter, and all the more vibrant for it.
they like getting things wrong like with the hyperdub thing as well... but this time its not some history or context they didn't bother reading about its the music they can't hear propily...
'Where Aerial ran a wide BPM range'
yep all 140 BPM-ish bar one track
'Unbalance is a bit more confined and busy, establishing a narrow tempo window-- quickly paced'
yep all over the place from 130-140-ish BPM
not to bad I guess, I like it a lot more than that though its like one singular flowing techno vision, every track is so solid. Its like techno how I always wanted to hear it, esspecialy in the clubs as 2562 has fuck loads of bass weight to go along with the skipping flowing grooves.
It seems fairly written but I'm liking Unbalance more and more every time I listen to it. The bass is just ridiculous, like on 'Lost' for example, the way it's just looming in the background, my subwoofer makes everything in my room shake whenever I play it. Just wish I'd had a chance to hear the record before I saw him so I knew a little bit more about what was to be expected.
the opinion is fair enough
2562 knows how to make stuff shake thats for sure. I saw him before this came out and I'm still not sure he even played much of this, dubstep guys are usualy well on their way to playing dubs of future stuff by the time something of thiers is released. I'm sure he played some of it but its hard to tell sometimes when its that in your face and relentless. He makes most techno look 2D by really shaking things up and adding a whole new dimention of bass.
on spotify x
Still loving this album as well.
Rather excited to have a listen, I must say, and the news that another AMUS release is upcoming as the follow up to 'Sun Touch' is very welcome indeed. As it stands I think I prefer his Made Up Sound stuff (even if that's only just).
Its really good, its full of sketches mostly. But it all flows and doesn't feel like sketches. He's expanded some of the tracks into full blown 2562 and A Made Up Sound stuff too from ideas on the album.
Been meaning to for time, but money's so short that it doesn't seem to take precedence...
looking forward to it.
