Boomkat Product Review:
Sydney, Australia's Dro Carey links with Trim and local brethren at Templar Sound for a much anticipated 2nd release following that wicked (and super limited) 12" for The Trilogy Tapes. It's as fruitfully nutty as you'd expect, introducing two brilliant new names to these ears on remixes from Bad God and Cedaa, besides a cameo coup from the one and only Trim. We enter to the syncretic R&B/Footwork simulacra of 'Much Coke', where ruff cut-and-parried samples graze and fray in a mesmerizing tussle. Bad God makes the Juke connection more explicit with fractured staccato percussion and twitching off-beat re-arrangement while Cedaa seriously impresses with his mix, replacing the original samples with a playful musique concrète palette of squeaking trainers on a basketball court, fizzing cola and even a flippin' Dolphin call. 'Lose My Head' Is probably the most abstract beat Trim's appeared on but suits his jarring flow nicely, while 'Pipe Hoop (Piano Mix)' is Dro's most experimental arrangement, kinda like Detroit booty soul reduced by Hype Williams. Recommended!
