The Trilogy Tapes label signal the start of a potentially devastating series of releases with the Burglar Loops EP from Tuff Sherm, the slightly less leaned on production alias of Eugene Hector, the tireless Australian producer known to most as Dro Carey. Hector's appeared on Will Bankhead's label under both aliases previously, most recently under the Tuff Sherm banner with the Pharmacy EP, whose understated take on house music has shades of Kassem Mosse's monochromatic productions. Hector is seemingly in a much rowdier mood here as the opening track "Cleric" demonstrates, seemingly culling influences from the last decade of niche house movements and cramming them in the spaces between a booming kick drum. Elsewhere, the title track sees Sherm opt for the abstract approach with a vocal sample that lends the production a certain degree of ghetto roughness that doesn't detract from it's overall affecting nature. With 12"s from _moonraker, DJ Spider & Marshalitto and obscure Youtube presence Rezettstill to come it feels like 2013 is going to be The Trilogy Tapes finest year thus far.
