March 2, 2009 § Leave a comment
Found this gem online recently and wanted to share with you other warp-nuts out there: UNRELEASED Prefuse 73 material! This was a handmade CD-R sold at his 2003 tour.
Prefuse 73 is the alias of Guillermo Scott Herren, a post-modern beat deconstructor and poster-child for the glitch-hop movement. His (usually short and concise) audio constructions border on hip hop, noise, techno, drum and bass but seem to fit in his own pocket of micro-edited compositions. He’s known as a wizard with an MPC2000 and having used that machine he’s got my nod of approval and always has me going “HOW the F*..?”
All albums on Warp come highly recommended and you can find Prefuse remixes on many 12’s coming out of the underground hip hop and IDM scenes. Information below from Discogs. Enjoy and GO BUY HIS ALBUMS (and see the show!)
