Prefuse 73

Prefuse 73 is the foremost alias of Scott Herren, a producer and musician whose experimental and novel approach to hip-hop production, along with that of Tadd Mullinix (aka Dabrye), formed something of a bridge between the '90s output of the Mo' Wax label (exemplified by DJ Shadow) and the later Los Angeles beat scene (led by Flying Lotus). Although Herren occasionally drifted away from hip-hop with positive results, his elegantly layered and psychedelic way with beats and heavily treated voices -- through samples, as well as contributions from dozens of far-flung rappers and vocalists -- remained the least replicable weapon in his arsenal.

Herren began his career working in commercial studios in Atlanta. Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives, his first album as Prefuse 73 -- after lower-key releases as/with Delarosa, Delarosa & Asora, and Savath & Savalas -- not only buried but cut up and spliced voices 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 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 light on collaborations; it featured only two guests, Four Tet's Kieran Hebden and TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe. Preparations, featuring Battles drummer John Stanier on one track, followed in 2007, and Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian appeared in 2009. Herren focused on collaborative projects in 2010, flexing his production muscles via dates, remixes, or cameos with everyone from Zach Hill (Diamond Watch Wrists) 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.

A few years later, newly inspired, Herren returned to the Prefuse 73 moniker with a flurry of releases on Temporary Residence Limited -- an outlet endorsed by friends Nigel Godrich (Ultraísta) and Hebden -- beginning with the 25th entry into the label's Travels in Constants EP series. The album Rivington Não Rio, featuring guest appearances by Busdriver, Rob Crow, and Helado Negro, was flanked by the EPs Forsyth Gardens and Every Color of Darkness. All four works were issued in 2015, from March through July. ~ Geoff Orens & Andy Kellman, Rovi

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.

Jennifer, then just thumbs-down Prefuse. That's the point of Pandora.

Or just click on "I'm tired of this song."
