Søren Schou, alias Pharfar, is firmly established as one of Denmark’s biggest producers, especially when it comes to reggae & dancehall. With bullish stamina Pharfar has introduced Denmark to Jamaican music. A true pioneer pushing the sound long before it hit the mainstream. But when it finally did, Pharfar was in the centre, making multiplatinum records and hit-singles both as a producer (artists like Natasja, Wafande, Shaka Loveless) a member of Bikstok Røgsystem and as a solo artist (hits like ‘La’ Mig Rulle Dig’) The walls in Pharfar’s Studio in Copenhagen witness that his determined focus has paid off. The walls are covered in gold and platinum records. He has received numerous awards and top reviews for his works. Among the awards he has also received a Danish Music Award for producer of the year. The Award was given for his work with the platinum selling debut album from Bikstok Røgsystem. Pharfar was also the primary producer for multi platinum selling Natasja (RIP) on her 3 albums ‘Release’, ‘I Danmark Er Jeg Født’ and ‘Shooting Star’. Simultaneously Pharfar has produced for many of the big international stars of Jamaican music scene like Vybz Kartel, Busy Signal, Sizzla, Michael Rose and many more. In 2013 Pharfar surprised everyone and released his solo debut single ‘La’ Mig Rulle Dig’ which was the biggest Danish hit of the summer. The single has received 3 x platinum for streaming.
