  • Summary: Dave Huismans releases his second album as 2562.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 6
  2. Negative: 0 out of 6
  1. Unbalance delivers on this promise and establishes 2562 as the unequivocal front-runner of dubstep’s movement toward technical precision and aesthetic allure.
  2. 'Love In Outer Space,' is as seductive, giddy, and beautiful as ever. It’s a testament to the album’s overall strength that it comes near the tail end of the record. It’s about as perfect a mixture of dubstep and techno as anything out there.
  3. Everything sounds livelier, more active. Huisman fills the empty spaces, never over-stuffs them, and the percussion is practically spring-loaded--from several angles--in comparison.
  4. It's one of those odd albums where nearly every track sounds good, but it's all so singleminded and monolithic in its approach that taking it in as a whole almost feels smothering.
  5. Uncut

    Dave Huismans brings an aesthetic informed by the metallic echo of Berlin and machine melodies of Detroit to the music's syncopated UK rave logic. [Jan 2010, p. 103]
  6. Q Magazine

    The follow-up to last year's scene-defining debut, Aerial, is every bit as good. On Lost, Huismans takes dubstep's booming sub-bass and frozen atmospherics and adds fuzzy keyboards and a spiralling vocal sample. [Dec 2009, p. 111]
