Dutch producer Dave Huismans, aka 2562, know for his mix of dubstep and minimal techno, has announced that he will release his third album, ‘Fever’, on 4 Apr, this time leaving Tectonic for his own When In Doubt label.

Asked about the making of his new album, and how it compared to his previous long players, Huismans told Fact: “I think the self-imposed restriction of using disco records and basic sample manipulation as my only resources pushed me both musically and in terms of sound design, but most importantly it helped keeping me focused. Both my previous two albums were the result of a long and painstaking process where I puzzled together a sequence out of twenty-something tracks written over a bigger time span. ‘Fever’ came fast, out of nowhere: I wrote the LP in only a couple of months last summer”.

He continued: “I set out to write a few simple grooves based on sampling the disco records I had been listening to as a much needed escape from electronic music, and before I knew it, it became an album. Just the eleven tracks and that was it. Even the order in which I wrote them largely remained the same on the album, it just worked. As a result the album to me feels like a soundtrack to my personal life during the summer in which I made it. I didn’t perform or travel much that time, so it was a very simple life: sampling records, making music, going for a run, watching the World Cup. Enjoying small things. In fact it was the first time writing an album was simply fun”.

The album’s tracklisting is as follows:

Winamp Melodrama
Aquatic Family Affair
Flavour Park Jam
This Is Hardcore
Brasil Deadwalker
Final Frenzy
