Prefuse refuses to conform


PREFUSE 73, real name Guillermo Scott Herren, is a DJ with ADD.
His latest LP, the out-of-this-world Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian, splits up its 50-odd minutes into a ludicrous 29 tracks, averaging around one minute forty seconds per track.
Now if I could craft hip hop beats half as well as Prefuse 73, I'd want to milk more than 30 seconds out of them.
The LP, the fifth studio album by Prefuse 73, is a barrage of funky beats thrown into a blender of other-worldly wailing, old school hip hop samples and ambient noise.
The result is a collage of choice tracks, all fantastic, and all frustratingly fleeting.
