Favorite ThisPharo's "Native Range" EP Release & Contest

Published: September 20, 2012

Hailing from the "live music capital of the world", Austin TX, audio/visual composer Pharo delivers his debut EP, Native Range, on Gravitas Recordings. Aside from producing and DJing bass music, Pharo is also well known as an adept live painter and visionary artist, using diverse mediums ranging from canvas to custom hats and clothing.

For the release of Native Range, Pharo and Gravitas have teamed up with Novation and The Untz
to put together a couple of awesome prize packages:

- Custom Limited Edition The Untz & Grassroots California Snapback hand-painted by Pharo (see picture)

Washing in with waves of texture, Native Range starts things off proper with the hard hitting title track. "Pacman Grind" drops in next with a robust combination of funky leads and tangible grit, persuading the listener to head-bounce in approval. The EP then changes direction with "Dub Deals", making way for more shuffling drum patterns laid across thick sub bass, followed closely by "Kerplunk's" swampy beats and wildly modulating synth tracks.

Psymbionic brings a hip hop flavored remix to "Native Range", trading in some of the original's fervor for layered brass and big chords. The record closes out with a hot and heavy take on "Pacman Grind" from Omega, who manages to perfectly balance threatening basslines with tasteful interludes.
