Artist statement:

Tuff Sherm is a side-project of Sydney-based producer Dro Carey. The basic thrust of the project is a focus on techno and house, though it is prone to some ambient and noise flourishes too. Crusty and throbbing, Tuff Sherm aims for a dark and bleary vision of club music, retaining a core sense of groove and pulse even as the elements of each track slither in and out. "Armorine" was completed between the Pharmacy and Shrapnel Maestro releases.
