Hip hop production pioneer sets off on tour with new label mates.
Earlier this year Prefuse 73 announced the launch of his new label, Yellow Year Records. Its inaugural release saw the pioneering artist team up with new blood Teebs for an EP of dreamy beats under the moniker Sons Of The Morning.
Further details on the label’s planned releases revealed a string of further collaborations between Prefuse and experimental producers working on the fringes of hip hop and electronic music including Brainfeeder’s Lapalux, Manchester’s Synkro, Nathan Fake, reclusive experimentalist Dimlite, New York’s FaltyDL and Los Angeles whizkid Nosaj Thing. Quite the impressive line up.
In celebration of this, Prefuse has announced a short North American tour in the new year alongside FaltyDL and Nosaj Thing. The tour will take in seven dates across both coasts and also Canada. It starts January 23, see full dates below.
