Prefuse 73 (USA/WARP) & Teebs (USA/Brainfeeder)
Saturday November 17 // The Bakery

73 times dope, Guillermo Scott Heron’s seminal experimental hip hop project, Prefuse 73, reflects one man’s desire to rebuild rap from the roots. Predating the recent explosion of LA-based beat experimentalists by at least five years, Prefuse 73 completely blew away the boundaries of a stagnating sample-based hip hop production scene in 2003 with the release of his astonishingly well produced sophomore album One World Extinguisher. Paving the way for the new generation of producers that was to come, Prefuse 73 applied the principles of spiritual exploration and experimentation that he discovered in the sounds of pre-fusion jazz music, circa 1973, (hence the name) to his new form of “Cubase cubism” and patchwork sample production. The results were outstanding and the various follow-up releases under an army of aliases that Herron has created (including: Delarosa & Asora, Amhmad Szabo, Piano Overlord, Savath y Savalas, Risil, Diamond Watch Wrists & Sons of the Morning) prove that he is a truly consistent and diverse artist.

The name Prefuse 73 comes from my devotion to pre-fusion jazz circa 1973. A lot of records that I cherish and get the most inspiration from were recorded between ‘68 and ’73. During that time there seemed to be an extreme amount of exploration and integration of new sounds drawn from electric and foreign instruments into an otherwise traditional format. This new approach went hand in hand with these musicians’ emerging spiritual awakenings … In my opinion, there isn't another area of time within any genre that holds such a prolific outpouring of beautiful, mind expanding music.

This year, Herron has found a most accomplished musical accomplice in fellow Californian beat dreamer Teebs. The pair has began working on a collaborative project, Sons of the Morning, which is set to be released in the near future.

Much more than just another producer in Southern California's über-fertile beat scene, Teebs is a crystal clear pool reflecting pure creativity. His enthusiasm comes to life through positive energy. When unleashed – whether via the skateboard deck, paintbrush or Roland SP 404 pads – this energy blossoms into richly textured expressions. Like many of his musical brethren, he claims to have been originally inspired by trips to vaunted weekly club night Low End Theory, although we're guessing that the fact that he also has spent time living with Flying Lotus and Samiyam certainly hasn't stifled his development as an artist. In just a few short years, Teebs has formed a remarkably unique voice, fostering fans the world over. His music is steeped in infectious melodies, subtle hip-hop inspirations and a kaleidoscope of sound – music for the imagination. A co-founder of the Southern California based arts collective My Hollow Drum, a member of the already legendary Brainfeeder family and a resident DJ at LA’s dublab.com, Teebs puts heartfelt energy into his every move. He’s also a skateboarding chef.

Support on the night comes from Mei Saraswati, {MOVE} DJs, Arn One and Arms In Motion.
