Prefuse 73

Prefuse 73 is the alias of Scott Herren, a hip-hop producer who, under the Prefuse name, has produced material in which many of the raps of MCs are buried in the production mix to become part of the sonic texture as opposed to a focal point. Herren began his career working in Atlanta commercial studios, but has since gone on to work on more experimental work. His first record under the Prefuse name, Vocal Studies and Uprock Narratives, not only buried but cut up and spliced raps as well as allowing some more straightforward vocals from several MCs. The 2003 follow up, One Word Extinguisher carried on within a similar vein. Also in 2003, Warp released Extinguished: Outtakes -- a fascinating EP of beats and samples that runs trough 23 tracks in about thirty-five minuets. [Herren has also worked under his own name and that of Savath & Savalas.] ~ Geoff Orens, All Music Guide
