Thursday: Prefuse 73 @ Soundlab

Tags: ,

Giullermo Scott Herren, international music producer and artist, has been based out of various cities from Atlanta to New York to Barcelona, releasing music under various aliases—most notably Prefuse 73, but also Savath y Savalas, Delarosa & Asora, and Piano Overlord. His DJ career began in the Atlanta club scene of the 1990s where Herren learned his trade, but he moved to NYC in order to ply it, releasing his first recording Sleep Method Suite (1997) under the name Delarosa & Asora. The moniker Prefuse 73 came about with the release of 2001’s commercially and critically successful Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives. Now with his fourth LP as Prefuse 73, Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian, Herren has made a name for himself not just as a DJ but in hip hop and avant-rock circles as well. Ballads, noise-jams, and techno beats make unlikely bedfellows on his latest album, but it serves as a good launching pad for Herren’s latest incarnation, Diamond Watch Wrists, which explores new sounds within the realm of classic singer-songwriter fodder, 60s European acid-folk, and krautrock. Herren will be performing next Thursday (Jan. 21) at Soundlab with two acts out of Los Angeles: DJ Gaslamp Killer and the femalo duo Voices Voices.
