Prefuse 73 - Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives album FLAC

Complete your Prefuse 73 collection. The freshest hip-hop to come down the line in a while. Prefuse 73's debut, VOCAL STUDIES + UPROCK NARRATIVES, uses cut-up MCs and glitch sounds to craft some of the funkiest tunes to come out of the ATL since the advent of crunk. They take not only bit of lyric, but the moments when the MCs take a breath - making for a completely unexpected rhythm and flow.

Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives ‎(CD, Album, Dig). Prefuse 73 uses the human voice as an instrument and is though following the ideas of human beatbox. Stuttered rap voices whom are sampled from a record by putting down the needele on the record randomly. The result is not experimental at all but fresh groovin´ tunes with that special extra. If Autechre are subliminal hiphop, Prefuse 73 brings the nerdy harddisk-rock of Autechre back to the streets. Recommended ! Reply Notify me Helpful.

Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives is the first studio album by Guillermo Scott Herren under the name Prefuse 73. Released on Warp in 2001. Originally inspired by hip hop music, specifically miami bass and early 90s hip hop, Herren was first recording music with his Music Production Center (MPC) for the label Schematic Records, a label known primarily for intelligent dance music (IDM). Herren was signed to Warp in 1999 and began composing the album sampling hip hop artist such as Nas and Erykah Badu. Herren has only described his style as hip-hop and.

Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives's 16 tracks can be listened to as one 50-minute piece of experimental ambient hip-hop. Even the album's more disruptive elements are somehow seamlessly integrated into the overall sense of groovy calm and funky forward motion. Atlanta-based producer Scott Herren uses a richly varied palette to create Vocal Studies' warm, subtle sound collages. Sliced-and-diced rap and vocal performances play a key role on a number of these sonic constructions. Blacklist," featuring MF Doom and Aesop Rock, is an exception.

Scott Herren, the lone figure behind releases as Delarosa & Asora, Savath & Savalas, and Prefuse 73, constructs raw breakbeat tracks, cutting and splicing vocals, beats, and pianos over and over until what may previously have been a straight-ahead hip-hop rhythm track gets reconstructed into a symphony of deeply groovy musique concrète. Herren calls on the raw repetition of DJ Premier and the catchy finesse of Timbaland to create a collection of tracks that could appeal to fans of DMX just as well as AFX.

The freshest hip-hop to come down the line in a while. Prefuse 73's debut, VOCAL STUDIES + UPROCK NARRATIVES, uses cut-up MCs and glitch sounds to craft some of the funkiest tunes to come out of the ATL since the advent of crunk. They take not only bit of lyric, but the moments when the MCs take a breath -- making for a completely unexpected rhythm and flow. It's like anti-crunk. "Nuno" has such tremendous soul that you don't even notice how carefully chopped the track is. "Point to 8" shows that you can rock the mic even if you're not using whole words, and the horns in "Five Minutes Away" counterbalance the moodier sounds elsewhere in the track. "Last Light" is glitch soul at its best, even as it leads out on some country roots-rock guitar. Even when he gives MCs a chance to shine on "Blacklist," his tight beats keep them on track (it helps that it's Aesop Rock as well). "Afternoon Love-In" has that floaty sense of romance (the flutes help with this). Even the ridiculous telephone messages on "7th Message" get transformed into a rocking track. The future of hip-hop? I hope so.

A wonderful mix of hiphop beats and brilliant samples indeed!!! Who's says that rappers are always needed to make real hiphop?

OUT OF IT! some of the most interesting, and inventive music ive heard in a long time. Sorta like chop suey with a tonne of vocal and who knows what sort of samples (theyve been diced up so fine its hard to distinguish what half of them are, voice? synth? fax machine??) thrown in the beat blender with the end result being something which is kinda undescribable but utterly delectable.
