Dro Carey is Sydney-based producer and DJ Eugene Ward. With a discog already spanning an impressive lineup of labels, he’s released on esteemed experimental imprints such as The Trilogy Tapes and Templar Sound, as well as London club heavyweight Greco-Roman.
His productions are eclectic – casually darting between deep, low-slung UK Garage and energetic, neon Grime beats. Though prone to frequent genre shape-shifting, Dro’s tracks always manage to carry a singular vision and unmistakable feel - an approach built around structures and hooks that elude traditional club formulas.
Following on from his string of acclaimed EP's and singles of dancefloor constructions, 2020 sees Dro turn his attention to his debut album, with double-a side singles dropping throughout 2019 and early 2020 via Soothsayer. Due to drop mid this year, his debut record will be refreshingly eclectic culmination of all sides of Dro Carey that we've heard in the past and more; including his trademark layered production, thumping dance floor heaters and a mysterious edge that keeps the Dro Carey project one of the most exciting coming out of the country.
Much like the range of genres explored in his productions, Dro’s DJ sets are known for their far-reaching and unexpected selections. Don't miss his set this year at Splendour in The Grass!
