Who is this new kid on the block? Guess again! It’s none other than Mr. Prefuse 73 himself, Guillermo Herren. Can’t refuse the Prefuse. Here we have a double-album narrative that begins in Manhattan’s Chinatown and is driven by the foulness of city life out into the peaceful sticks. Lots of intricate, Prefuse-esque melodies and sample-slicery to enjoy.

Last spotted writing an album called 'Lady Parts' as Fudge, it feels like time Scott Heron got back to doing what he's best at. After many years of output he still has great production chops and though we have absolutely zero information about this album we're sure it will be as much anticipated as all his previous work.

Electronic pioneer Prefuse 73 is back in a big, bold and brash way with Forsyth Gardens. Presumably not an ode to Bruce and his topiary, this multi-faceted album sounds ultra-modern in its kaleidoscopic scope. Young fans of Flying Lotus would be wise to take note of one of the masters. Out on vinyl LP from Temporary Residence.

It’s been a while since we heard anything new from Guillermo Scott Herren, but here the man best known as Prefuse 73 returns from the wilderness with a new alias. The concept for The Lapse Of The Exchange is based around a man in Chinatown, Manhattan, feeling the intense clamour of 21st century big city life as expressed through advanced sample chops and crooked melodic flurries like only Herren can do.
Prefuse73 has been in the weirdo / leftfield hip-hop game for years now, but this is the first time he has produced a full-length collaboration with a particular MC. The young Michael Christmas is coming up fast, and the lush glitch-scapes that Prefuse provides fit perfectly with his flow. Lady Parts, released under the collaborative name Fudge, is out on Lex.
Four years since his last significant release under his best known and most revered recording name, Prefuse 73, aka Guillermo S. Herren, who has been busy elsewhere with collaborative work, remixes and live performances, is finally releasing not one, but three full length LPs due out this year. ‘Every Color of Darkness’ is built from the darkest elements of Prefuse 73's world, expressing an uneasy romanticism through manic and broken, jazzy beats and phrasing.
Prefuse 73 returns after a remarkably long break (four years!) to treat us all with a fresh platter of his clicking minimal-hip-hop, reverb-soaked and with odd production touches abound. Guest vocalists include Busdriver, Rob Crow and Helado Negro, and Rivington Nao Rio is released by Temporary Residence.
