Prefuse 73

Prefuse 73 is the alias of Scott Herren, an experimental hip-hop producer whose material often features MCs buried in the mix to become more a part of the sonic texture than a focal point. Herren began his career working in commercial studios in Atlanta, but later went on to more experimental work. His first record under the Prefuse name, Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives, not only buried but cut up and spliced raps as well as allowing some more straightforward vocals from several MCs. The 2003 follow-up, One Word Extinguisher, carried on in a similar vein. That same year, Warp released Extinguished: Outtakes -- a fascinating EP of beats and samples that ran through 23 tracks in about 35 minutes.

Surrounded by Silence, the proper successor to One Word Extinguisher, was released in March of 2005, featuring collaborations with rappers Ghostface and Aesop Rock, plus Blonde Redhead and EL-P. Three months later, an EP of recordings made with the band the Books appeared, titled Reads the Books. The next Prefuse record, 2006's Security Screenings, was relatively collaboration-free; it featured only two guests, Four Tet's Kieran Hebden and Tunde Adebimpe from TV on the Radio. Preparations, featuring Battles drummer John Stanier on one track, followed in 2007, and Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian appeared in early 2009. Herren focused on collaborative projects in 2010, flexing his production muscles via dates, remixes, or cameos with everyone from Zach Hill to Oneohtrix Point Never to TV on the Radio. His 2011 production The Only She Chapters continued the familial feeling, with a wealth of features for female vocalists. Herren has also worked under his own name, and that of Savath + Savalas and Delarosa & Asora. His project with Zach Hill, Diamond Watch Wrists, released the 2009 LP Ice Capped at Both Ends. ~ Geoff Orens, Rovi

I feel he's doing something almost nobody else is. Way ahead of the curve. What is it about Atlanta? He deserves much more exposure.
Different shsh! Love it.......
barkenn
I find much of his work unbelievably moving and all of his work interesting. He takes hip-hop up to another plane. Wish there were more artists out there doing such ground-break i n g work. Thx!!!
Heh Heh once again falls under the likes of ambient vibes like Fly Lo or Dimlite :)
I don't like that weird- ss cover art....
Just a little bit doper than dope
absolutely amazing. best station ever.
ill
Dope as f**k!
charliedias5

Wildly legit. That is all.
No, this music is fine as is. Unneeded lyrical accompanimen t would hinder the power of the music.

str8lin
Awesome tune to ride my beemer to, especially thu the twisties....

First I have heard of S. Herren, the guys is great..at the edge of some new stuff!
good ski music..
I really like his latest album. It's got a lot of stuff that's loopable as hell.
dope instrumental s
Great live. Highly suggested for anyone into the genre.
very tasty sounds... +_+
His music always seems to have a melancholy air to it. Which is allright with me because it is good music.
Prefuse 73 is some serious music. Reminds me of a hip hop Aphex Twin, and I don't mean that as some vague generality. While Aphex is a little more challenging, Prefuse 73 is not pulling any punches with some highly complex, technical, and not always accessible music. If you want to take a journey - and not always somewhere pleasant - then hook up with some Scott Herren.
Prefuse is one of those few hip-hop artists that is never afraid to make you say "What the f**k is going on?" He has the balls to throw musically complex s**t at you and make you really listen to his s**t. He also goes off the beaten hip-hop track by sometimes not even having raps in his songs. If you can't get his music, then the mainstream has it's claws in you and you should just go listen to 50 Cent or Kanye West. But this is true hip-hop, it's inventive and it has spirit and life to it.

IF YOU DO NOT LIKE PREFUSE YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY A COMMUNIST AND SUCK C**KS
Jennifer, then just thumbs-down Prefuse. That's the point of Pandora.

Or just click on "I'm tired of this song."
Great s**t, I found him on the THAW soundtrack and I've fallen in love with his sound. It's great s**t to listen to when I'm just hanging around the house.
this s**t right here is f**king goood
how can anyone be "sick" of Prefuse?
Love it!
I AM TERRIBLY DISSAPPOINTE D THAT THIS STATION, CALLED ERLEND OYE, PLAYS MORE PREFUSE THAN ANY OTHER ARTIST. I AM SICK OF PREFUSE, AND I DON'T AGREE THAT IT FITS WITH THE PROFILE OF ERLEND OYE
...music is th best. FZ
Never dissapointed by a prefuse track.
"Matrimonloi d s " . . . I could listen to that intro all day.
Tight Kick Sound
danoe12105
I could listen to whisper in my ear all day! It's just a raw beat.
The beginning of Smile In Your Face from Vocal Studies makes me want to crap my pants - straight up one of the dankest dirtiest beats I've ever heard.
I argee with "Losing".... Lame-a**-wea k - s h i t e
One Word Extinguisher is easily his best. ...Love his sound so much that I made a Pandora station based on it. This is the sort of sound we'd all hoped would someday be spawned by artists like Grandmaster Flash. ...Dig...
Lame..Lame.. . m a y b e , if I wuz on crack.
retrolove
lovelovelove this music!
