Prefuse 73 // Temporary Residence / Rivington Não Rio

As one of the most influential hip-/glitch-hop producers of the last 15 years, Guillermo Scott Herren has made music that I often crave and that I return to very often. Most notable is his Prefuse 73 project under which he has released 7 albums and various EPs.

Since probably around 2007, the Prefuse output swerved further into experimental territories, away from the characteristic sound of his ground-breaking albums Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives (2001) and One Word Extinguisher (2003), but this year, after a 4 year hiatus, Prefuse is releasing a slew of new material on the Temporary Residence label.

I am pleased to say that the new music harks back to Prefuse’s early beat-making, while maintaining the atmosphere cultivated through his most recent projects. There will be a total of 4 releases this year, 2 of which have emerged already, and will include a full-length album, Rivington Não Rio, which is released next week (preview below). One of the EPs to have been released already is the 25th instalment of the label’s Travels in Constants series, which can be downloaded for a price of your choosing, and serves as a precursor to the other 3 releases.
