Introducing Faro… Although not a household name, Faro has been involved in the music industry for almost a decade and has experienced first hand its highs and the lows. He first rose to prominence in 2006 after being featured on the the Channel 4 programme ‘Chancers’ which led to Faro touring the USA and being mentored by Beyonce’s Father and manager Matthew Knowles. A few failed record deals later, Faro made the decision to quit music after the hugely impressive ‘The Reflection’ mixtape in 2010. However, a rejuvenated and exciting 2012 Manchester music scene has forced Faro back to the microphone. After a series of Grime freestyles this year, this track entitled ‘Visions’ sees Faro go back to his hip-hop roots alongside fellow Stage One member R Deal. Visions is a laid back Hip Hop produced by Omega which sees the two Manchester wordsmiths lay wear their heart on their sleeves and discuss their personal aspirations whilst addressing the problems in achieving the goals. The track is out for free download and the package includes a ‘Grimey House’ remix from rising producers Star One and acts as a prelude to the forthcoming collaborative EP ‘The Highs and Lows of a Beautiful Mind’ from Faro and Star One.
