    Truants readers will be familiar with Dro Carey thanks to his impossibly good 12″ release on Templar Sound last year, which Simon Docherty reviewed here. “N.R.”‘s take on steely grime tropes summed up the essence of Eugene Hector’s approach to production, either as Dro Carey or Tuff Sherm. He delights in playful subversion, his take on the sacred totems of dance music simultaneously reverent and experimental - whether they’re the propulsive grooves of house or the latent icy menace of grime and UKG. Perhaps this is partly down to his geographical distance from these genres’ hotbeds – Sydney is pretty far from both Detroit and Bow – but there’s no denying Dro’s compositional talent, his knack for an infectious bassline or refined drum pattern, and penchant for experimentation. With releases on Templar, Hum + Buzz and The Trilogy Tapes, he’s been bubbling under the radar for a couple of years now, but it looks like 2013 is set to be Dro Carey’s biggest year yet. He has an album forthcoming on RAMP Recordings, plus self releases and records with The Trilogy Tapes, Opal Tapes and more. We figured it was the perfect time to hit him up for a mix, and he more than delivered, with a Truancy-themed volume (and we’re nothing if not suckers for a concept mixtape) packed with original productions and some delicious surprises.
