Pharoah is one of the best recent talents in the current smorgasbord that is the D&B scene, his rough and ready sound blends jump up currents with jungle stutters and it's ideal for any situation. Origins carries on that trend on Liondub International and blimey, it's pretty damn good. 'Once' is our favourite, with a hypnotic sample that grounds its cracking percussive knocks within a framework of bassy shudders and groaning sweeps. It's top stuff the whole way through, and Pharoah shows off his diversity in production with the almost-liquid bounces of 'No Other', all the way through to the neurofunk injection of 'The Omen'. Next level.
