Tuff Sherm – Shrapnel MaestroPosted: April 22, 2014
Sydney, Australia based DJ and producer Dro Carey has been exploring the darker underbelly of the techno aesthetic under the moniker Tuff Sherm. On Shrapnel Maestro, a digital album from 2012, he collects the shards of urban paranoia and dark night pulsations into a blackened club mass with a mutated, ragged edge and a penchant for some bassy filth hidden among the skeletal, Octo Octa-like beats. It’s dark and sinister, but it must be admitted that it’s also catchy and boucny as hell at the same time. Definitely not some shrapnels I’d mind getting hit with.
