The Australian producer also known as Tuff Sherm has written a Club Injury Handbook.
The prolific Eugene Ward is the man behind the monikers Dro Carey and Tuff Sherm. Already with a consistent list of releases – on the likes of The Trilogy Tapes and Berceuse Heroique, the abundant output of Ward doesn’t end there, with his creative endeavours also extending to videography and writing comic books. Citing loneliness and humour as prevalent inspirational themes, such sentiments are expressed cathartically, as Ward manages to make practical use of various pseudonyms to great proficiency.
It has just been announced that the recent Hyponik mix contributor and interviewee has signed with Greco-Roman. His latest release – ‘Club Injury Handbook’ comes accompanied with hand crafted diagrams of dance-floors and their emergency routes grabbed their attention immediately.
Pushing the sonic boundaries and perceptions of club music alike and signals a development that Ward hinted at on previous releases: “he’s prepared to transition from outsider darling to wider club circles.” Lead track ‘Monomiles’ features Sierra Leone natives Chocolate & Kid Kairo of esteemed Mountain Studio in Sydney. This release draws inspiration in refuting the current state of play in Sydney where a number of laws concerning late night venues and trading have been damaging for the music scene.
