Back in the summer of 2006, someone on the I Love Music board repped for the first record by A Made Up Sound (aka 2562, aka David Huismans), calling it a truly jazzy piece of deep house. I was still a bit green at this point, and the description fit what I was looking for at the time, so the next time I travelled to Cleveland's Bent Crayon shop, I picked it up, and I'm still glad that I did. The record is versatile and deeply groovy while simultaneously effusing an effortlessness that makes it perfect for a lazy weekend rollabout, either in bed or on the open road.

While "Late Drive" is a bit more subtle in its effect, "Sunday" is the true winner on this slice of vinyl. With reverberating, live-sounding kicks, wet handclaps, and a lovely little jacking ping, the rhythmic template of the track is set out early. Then, a near-subsonic bass-line begins riding, along with a truly lovely, dusty organ melodic line. Backing vocal samples, bits of glitchy wash and percussive flourishes round out this powerfully deep house track. Could see anyone from Moodymann to Theo Parrish to Dixon utilizing this slice in a set-- a real endorsement! On the always-excellent Philpot label.

A Made Up Sound- Sunday

Tomorrow, thinking a Jazzanova piece featuring one of my favorite artists at the moment, Paul Randolph.

yep, this is a great record. much better than his later 2562 stuff i think, although that probably reflects my preference for a straight bass drum more than anything...
