Prefuse 73 – Rivington Não Rio

Prefuse 73 - Rivington Não Rio album

Alt rap producer Scott Herren has created synth-splitting music under many different monikers, but none more popular than Prefuse 73, the name behind 2003’s fantastic One Word Extinguisher and 2007’s Preparations. It isn’t his most adventurous side project, but it’s his most interesting, fiddling with cracked drums and electronic sounds in an approach best summed up by OWE highlight “The Color of Tempo”. It’s been four years since the last Prefuse 73 album, The Only She Chapters, though Herron has kept busy in that time releasing an album as Piano Overlord, an EP as Sons of the Morning, and a slew of scattered remixes. But Prefuse is his bread and butter, and on the project’s eighth studio album, Rivington Não Rio, he dabbles in an even more kinetic and unpredictable type of rhythmic mania.
