Guillermo S. Herren details his first new music in four years.
Prefuse 73 announced plans for an LP, two EPs and more last month, and now he’s opened up about what to expect: a return to the type of beatcraft with which he made his name (check out our Essential feature for more of that).
“I’ve come back to hyper focusing, immersing myself in the sounds, rhythms, and formations that created Prefuse 73 in the first place,” he says. “Recently, I’ve found a new life in the whole process of refining what I’ve created over the years as Prefuse. Right now I’m at my most confident and comfortable” in nearly a decade.
