3 - PHARAOHS - IN THE BASEMENT - (LP) 
LUV N HAIGHT


The Basement, a collection of obscure b-sides and never-released tracks. All the Pharaoh's trademarks are here; R&B fused with the rhythms of Africa and the (other) Americas, futuristic renderings of soul standards (check the Sun Ra influenced "People Make The World Go Round"), and out-and-out party funk delivered with the assured looseness and horny punch that only the very best funk bands can deliver.

4 - PHARAOHS - MANHUNTER - (12") 
INTERCOASTAL AR


Pharaohs (surprisingly not a surf band, considering their name and proximity to Los Angeles) cover a range of styles on their newest three-track 12-inch for Intercoastal Artists. Epic opener "Manhunter" sounds like the mutant grandchild of no-wave / "Na´ve Funk" late-1970s / early-1980s New York City. Think 99 Records, Sleeping Bag or ZE, throw in some Madchester, then tiptoe past Gottschings E2-E4, and youre close. If Arthur Russell (RIP) guested on this track, it wouldnt be a surprise. The other two cuts are roughly new age, but with one distinction-the filth oozing off the sax on "Nature Lovers" is more shocking and sleazy than any Wolf Eyes track. Of course, shocking in the most serene way possible. That said, either could be a lost backing track to an early Roxy Music album. The only things missing are Bryan Ferrys voice and Enos plummage. File this alongside R&S or Transmat releases, or even Blurt, Pigbag or A Certain Ratio records. More on the nose, listen to this while watching the elevator scene in Drive. Pharaohs feature Alejandro Cohen (co-founder of legendary SoCal radio station / multimedia scenemakers Dublab) and Sam Cooper alongside newest members Diego Herrera (a.k.a. Suzanne Kraft) and Casey Butler (Stellar Rahim). 2013 has already seen a flurry of Pharaohs activity: they garnered high praise for their recently released LP on 100% Silk and 12-inch on ESP, receiving nods from Pitchfork, The Fader, XLR8R, Ad Hoc, and the list continues. Manhunter is by far their furthest step forward. Seriously, these guys are the shit. "Straight acid melt that drips off the disco balls hanging from the smoggy firmament of LAs crotch" -Impose Magazine "Bunkered between an arrangement of stackable synths, the Pharaohs squad jams workshop-style, an endearing, funky, spirited live-thrive" -100% Silk "Pharaohs plow an unwavering path through the past, taking a route through various strains of dance music thats unapologetically nostalgist in outlook" -Pitchfork "Blissed-out house music created by robots in the future" -Reliver.

5 - PHARAOHS - REPLICANT MOODS - (CD) 
100% SILK


Not Pharaoh-one guy, one MIDI controller-but Pharaohs, plural: a dance band and magical rarity amid the lorn Lesis landscape of solo producers and desktop DJs. Bunkered between an arrangement of stackable synths, the Pharaohs squad jams workshop-style, an endearing, funky, spirited live-thrive. Replicant Moods is one part airy coastal jazz, that Ibeatha-meets-Madchester baggy style the group melted soles with on their first 12-inch Uhh Uhh, and two parts sci-fi soar into the new age, complete with Philip K. Dick winks, tech-know wonks and sleek Daft Punk-choreographed boogies. A Maria Minerva guest soft spot on the ESG / Weymouth bass bust "Miraculous Feet" lends another sweet shuffle to the clone conga line of Technics tracks. Replicant Moods is sensual-like a slinky Shakira-bot booty shake-and also considered, a nuanced composition slowly evolving into a compelling layer dip of star-stretching get-down. PHARAOHS - MIRACULOUS FEET (SILK045) by 100% Silk.
