Solid Steel (1st June) This week we welcome back Prefuse 73, who has his first solo album in three years 'Sacrifices', coming out on 15th June on Lex . Following a detour into fractured, kaleidoscopic hip-hop on recent releases, he has become increasingly interested in injecting a sense of space into his characteristically complex productions. His trailblazing early albums altered the course of underground music and influenced the paths of countless artists, though few could emulate his uncanny skill for evoking urgency via virtuosity. You can catch him playing at Low End Theory on 13th June and he told us;
"Not much to say about this mix other than this is a Pt.2 // follow up to the Prefuse 73_Solid Steel that was compiled in 2015.
Around the 12 track mark, all of the raps lose the words and become instrumentals for all of those sick of words.
Most of the material comes from cassette, I hope this can serve as an accompaniment to your Summer."
