Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

'One Word Extinguisher is an apposite title for the new Prefuse 73 LP. Anyone who experienced Scott Herren's debut, Vocal Studies and Uprock Narratives, will already know about his unique approach to producing hip-hop, but if not, this follow-up is an even better place to check it. On his new joint, Herren excels once again at chewing up traditional beats and rhymes with his MPC and spitting them back out as quasi-cubist digital fragments, creating rapid-fire, neck-snapping snares and stuttering, karate-chop vocals. His technique makes for a highly original and slightly avant sound, though most of the genuinely breathtaking rhythm-and-verbal assaults here are tempered by a melodic fluidity that ensures cerebral stimulation as well as heavy head-nod action. Once again, Herren has straddled the worlds of glitch-beep electronica and hip-hop without missing a beat, and has ensured that he occupies a league of his own--one that has to be heard to be believed. --Paul Sullivan

If there is something that proves hip hop can be a limitless, utterly compelling thing, this is it. Every bit as nuanced and produced as IDM electronic music, this takes pure hip hop elements, and filters them down through relentless breakbeats, and lovely electo textures. Attacking staight out of the box with the jazzed out turntablism of "The End of Biters- International" then segwaying into the contemporary hip hop of "Plastic", this more than any thing out there shows the heights this music can be taken to, and that's further than the eye can see. The utter attention to detail, and beauty can not only be admired, but enjoyed thoroughly. The entire record stays well within the lines of excellence, and is a real treat for anyone who loves the feel of either music (ie: hip hop, electronic). Prefuse 73 has an utterly precious musical proposal that will probally keep him away from mainstream acceptance, but virtually guarantees his ascension to greatness in both the hip hop, and electronic undergrounds, if he isn't there already.

Everything that Scott Herren records under the name Prefuse 73 is impeccably produced and pleasingly melodic. Unfortunately, for this listener at least, he hasn't been served well by all the hype surrounding this album and 2001's slightly superior "Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives". What we have here is decent instrumental hip-hop with minimal glitch trimmings. The digital acrobatics have been reigned in a bit, compared to the cut-up stutter-fest of "Vocal Studies...", and "One Word Extinguisher" suffers for it. It's exactly this "restraint" and "maturity" that has been praised by some pundits, but to my ears, this lack of surprise exposes the genericism at the heart of this music. If you're a fan of DJ Shadow, or any or the acts in the Ninja Tune stable, this is solid gear. Just don't show up expecting a mind-bending experience. Those who have praised this album in those terms are doing Mr. Herren a disservice, because this music is good for what it is. The beats are funky and tight, the music is "jazzy" (in the smooth, lounge-y, dance music sense), and the guest MCs do a great job. The glitch quivers that inhabit small pockets in the rhythmic matrices are a nice touch, but never approach the multidimensional contortions that made the first album so much fun. Herren has talent, and his past work displayed more than a bit of a personal style, but he needs to chose more imaginative samples and instrumental lines. When the vocalists dominate, this music soars. Herren would make a great hip-hop producer, but like the Neptunes, he stumbles a bit on his own. Plus, the self-serving answering machine track and faux-gangsta "ATL, beyotch!" attitude are beyond dorky.

prefuse is amazing, and this just another example of him showing us. i first heard this album coming home from boston with my brother and was amazed. some are thrown off by the caotic junction of samples, bass riffs and electronica, but reguardless this is hot. this album starts out bumping (forget the intro) and doesn't quit untill every last bone in your body has been jostled delightfully. prefuse uses samples that are as i said earlier, not by any strech of the imagenation seemless, but that's the point. prefuse has made his own unique sound throwing bizarre old timey samples with hip-hop influenced vibes, i.e. southerners (interlude). while some may dispoit the hip-hoppidness of prefuse (i'm not really sure how though) it is clear that he is trying to form a bridge between hip-hop and for lack of a better genre, techno. dig on prefuses disregard for the statous quoe and his odd samples. it is clear that he didn't set out to make a dj shadow CD or an M83 joint, but make his own style and try to bridge their's. four words prefuse, dude...word...way word.

Prefuse 73 preformed by Hip-Hop Producer "Scott Herren" (who has a multitude of alias'), is an American producing highly experimental Hip-hop/Electronica to a country (in this case, America) that is largely resistant to 'Electronic' music, so in order for his brand of music to stand out, which is a bizarre mix of Turnablist trickery (ala DJ Shadow), paired up with an unstable mix of Aphex Twin's / Autechre's brand of "Glitch Techno"....than somehow manages to all come together into a by and large cohesive whole....admittedly it's not designed for mainstream appeal, as the constantly manipulation of sound & effects, will send all but the more diverse music listeners, diving behind their sofas in horror. As skittering beats and fragmented breakbeats, sit happily alongside eccentric mixing and gritty production, with superbly pleasing results. Think "Aphex Twin" with a Hip-Hop record collection & a mixer, in some his most creative production, and you have a fair idea as to what to expect, although it would be unfair to say it's all extreme 'Glitch', as some tracks are far more Complex in their construction, that anything "Aphex Twin" has committed to recording. Although it's unlikely his homeland will greet him with open arms...in the confines of Britain's wildly eclectic musical diversity, it's a fair bet to assume he'll carve out a hardcore following here in the UK.
