Boomkat Product Review:
One of electronic hiphop's most enduring characters, Scott Herren aka Prefuse 73, reaches his fifth album for Warp pushing the prog-fusion levels to almost Yes levels of excess. From the naughtily intriguing sleeve featuring some lone space bloke exploring the forests of planet Spooj in the Nodonk cosmos, to the sprawling tracklist covering 29 seperate musical ideas, it would seem that somebody needs to buy this man a cape. Moving deeper into his sonic vortex, this album is sucked into a lush world of beat driven psychedelia sharing many common traits with his fellow west coast sonic psychonauts Daedelus, Carlos Nino or the Gaslamp Killer who appears alongside drummer extraordinaire Zach Hill, Boom and Birds' Roberto C. Lange and the scarily talented Dimlite. As with all of his previous work this is a complex affair, weaving a dense mesh of sampled instrumentation with organically morphing textures, blurring the lines between digital trickery and analog ephemera to tantalise your senses of depth perception and groove alignement in the finest tradition of sun-dazed West Coast experimentalism. Tracks like 'Natures Uplifting Revenge' take the chroal harmonics of the Beach Boys and leave them in the sun with a coating of digital suncream to slowly fry and peel, while 'Four Reels Collide' thrums acoustic guitars with a chorus of stoned martians for company. As to be expected, it's an expansive and all encompassing project from one of the most restless beat heads in the game, so get checking!
