Prefuse 73

New Strategies For Modern Crime Vol. 1 & 2

    Pioneering electronic musician, composer and producer: Prefuse 73 aka Guillermo Scott Herren releases his new album, New Strategies for Modern Crime Vol 1 and 2. His first new album since 2018's Sacrifices, New Strategies for Modern Crime sees Herren delving further into his ground breaking take on experimental hip- hop through orchestrated arrangements via the optic of the media's sensationalism of crime, blended with influences from lost soundtracks, musique concrete, jazz and beat-tape music to create something wholly unique.

    Herren's musical journey began in the mid-1990s when he emerged on the underground scene under various aliases, experimenting with different styles and genres. However, it was with the creation of Prefuse 73 when he truly found his unique voice. In 2001, Herren released his groundbreaking debut album, Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives, which immediately garnered attention for its avantgarde sound. The album skillfully combined glitchy electronic beats, intricate samples, and fragmented vocals, establishing Prefuse 73 as a trailblazer in the burgeoning genre of electronic hip-hop.

    Prefuse 73 continued to push boundaries with subsequent releases, including One Word Extinguisher and Surrounded by Silence , showcasing his ability to seamlessly fuse disparate elements and create his own distinctive style. Characterized by intricate production and unconventional time signatures, Herren's releases have gone on to influence an entire generation of electronic musicians.

    Throughout his career, Prefuse 73 has collaborated with a diverse array of artists, including MF Doom, Ghostface Killah, GZA, El-P, Sam Prekop, Helado Negro, and more. His work reflects a constant evolution, with each album offering a new perspective on the intersection of electronic and hip-hop music.

    Prefuse 73's impact on the electronic music scene extends beyond his discography; he has inspired a generation of producers to embrace experimentation and challenge conventional norms. Guillermo Scott Herren's artistic journey continues to evolve, leaving an indelible mark on the landscape of contemporary electronic music.

        Dangerdoom

        The Mouse & The Mask - 2024 Repress

          Previously only available in Europe in limited quantities, this is the first time many fans will be able to get their hands on a double vinyl copy of "The Mouse and the Mask".

          Lex has a history of lavish packaging but this remains one of the lushest sleeves in the catalogue. Design by EHQuestionmark, the outer sleeve is made from thick translucent textured plastic with DOOM's mask printed on cover, and mouse ears on each side of the mask forming a pattern that looks like a Rorschach test (a technique reused in another Danger Mouse project six months later). The inner sleeves, visible through the outer at first glance pattern based on an Ishihara test, but inside the circles in the pattern are tiny icons depicting a different disasters - climate change, acid rain, holy war, nuclear leaks.

          "The Mouse and the Mask" was produced by Lex super-producer Danger Mouse and masked supervillain MF DOOM. The album features Cee-Lo Green (also of Gnarls Barkley), Talib Kweli, Ghostface Killah, Money Mark and the cast of cult cartoon show Aqua Teen Hunger Force and ten years on remains DOOM's best selling album to date.

          Andrew Hung

          Dilverance

            Hung's third album Deliverance follows the critically-acclaimed Devastations. Deliverance is the aftermath of celestial collisions, where life sparks and shadows roam

            His deeply emotive voice is cocooned by whirlpools of soaring electronics, distorted guitars and driving rhythms sounding like the last bastion of hope crying through waves of technicolour noise. Deliverance sees Hung pushing what has been an overarching facet in all his music to the fore: hope. Rhythm, melody, voice and noise all serve to amplify hope like a lighthouse at the edge of an ocean. This is Hung's most sublime creation to date; a colossal statement given the extent of his past iconic work.

            "Andrew Hung brings the noise. It's what he does best."- DIY.

            "The music is as grand and wrought as the title implies."- DJ Mag.

            "The cumulative effect makes for an often irresistible record of pure pop joy, which demands wider attention while broadening an already sprawling creative palette."- Electronic Sound.

Following the release of his debut album ‘Pure Apparition’, he took some time out of music to focus on the visual arts. ‘Mist Face’ is his most fully realised project yet.

                  Trench Tones

                    Gila is an electronic producer from Denver, Colorado. His four track EP "Trench Tones", showcases the diversity of his sound.

Born Kyle Reid, he was a talented jazz drummer and percussionist until diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis forced him to give up his sticks at age 17. Turning to his laptop, he channeled his frustrated musicality into beat making. Gila, (pronounced hee-la) is named for the gila monster, the only venomous lizard native to the United States. Often slow, full of texture, and deadly, the gila monster possesses many of the same qualities in Reid's music. making it more than an apt pseudonym for the producer.

                        Lex lay on some of the good stuff here with the debut LP from Fudge, a killer collaboration between dope MC Michael Christmas and production wizz Prefuse 73. Wonky beats and wild lyricism abound as the duo take us on a trip through their out-the-box inner-thoughts. "Lady Parts" came together during several sessions in the summer and fall of 2015 at Nick Hook’s Green Point studio. Ever-ready and perma-prepared like any good boy scout, Prefuse 73 brought along a hard drive full of beats. Christmas wrote to the instrumentals in the studio, and recorded the vocals the same day, as friends swung by to check it out. Some of the drop-ins at the studio ended up joining in the recording, not least D.R.A.M. who brings lifted soul vocals on “All Points South”. Though the wacky-factor is high (check out the rude, nude and lewd cover), "Lady Parts" is a subtle story, bestowed with musical intricacies and lyrical themes which only reveal themselves on multiple listens. Let this one into your life, y'all.

'Sour Soul' also features guest spots from MF DOOM, Elzhi (Slum Village / J Dilla), Danny Brown and prodigal new rapper Tree (Project mayhem).
