PREFUSE 73

Prefuse_0439.jpg

Prefuse 73 is the alias of Scott Herren, an experimental hip-hop producer whose material often features MCs buried

in the mix to become more a part of the sonic texture than a focal point. Herren began his career working in commercial

studios in Atlanta, but later went on to more experimental work. His first record under the Prefuse name, Vocal Studies +

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 in a similar vein. That same year, Warp released

Extinguished: Outtakes -- a fascinating EP of beats and samples that ran through 23 tracks in about 35 minutes.

Surrounded by Silence, the proper successor to One Word Extinguisher, was released in March of 2005, featuring collaborations

with rappers Ghostface and Aesop Rock, plus Blonde Redhead and EL-P. Three months later, an EP of recordings made with the

band the Books appeared, titled Reads the Books. The next Prefuse record, 2006's Security Screenings, was relatively collaboration-free;

it featured only two guests, Four Tet's Kieran Hebden and Tunde Adebimpe from TV on the Radio. Preparations, featuring Battles

drummer John Stanier on one track, followed in 2007, and Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian appeared in early 2009. Herren

has also worked under his own name and that of Savath + Savalas and Delarosa & Asora. Geoff Orens, All Music Guide

THE GASLAMP KILLER

The Gaslamp Killer is a Los Angeles-based DJ whose eclectic style ranges from psychedelia and world music to dubstep and left-field

hip-hop. Associated with Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder Records, he made his production debut in the late 2000s with a series of EPs. Born

William Benjamin Bensussen, he originally comes from San Diego, CA, whose downtown Gaslamp District’s bar scene inspired him to name

himself the Gaslamp Killer in disgust for much of the patronage. Upon relocating to Los Angeles, he found a niche for himself amid the city’s

massive underground party scene and ultimately found a home for himself as a resident DJ at the club Low End Theory, which resulted in a

series of club-sponsored podcasts. He also released a series of mix CDs, among them Gaslamp Killers (2007), It’s a Rocky Road (2007), I Spit

on Your Grave (2008), Hell and the Lake of Fire Are Waiting for You! (2009), and All Killer (2009), the latter a label showcase for the London-based

world psychedelia imprint Finders Keepers Records. As a producer, the Gaslamp Killer made his debut in the late 2000s, releasing, for instance, a

split single with Free the Robots, “The Killer Robots,†on Obey Records in 2008 and an EP, My Troubled Mind, on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder

Records in 2009.
