What do you get when you meld the glitch electronica of Autechre and Aphex Twin with hip-hop? Prefuse 73. Scott Herren, otherwise known as Prefuse 73, is one of the most innovative hip-hop artists I have heard for quite some time. Along with RJD2 and DJ Shadow, Prefuse 73 is making a name for instrumental hip-hop. On One Word Extinguisher, Herren takes the tried-and-true sample formula and warps it out of proportion, creating rhythmic beats from seemingly chaotic sampling. Speech, song and various different instruments are cut-and-pasted to create a colorful collage of sound, all with very little or no use of turntables. The album cracks and flows both at the same time. "The End of Biters" comes off in the beginning as a standard rap song, but Herren unexpectedly rhythmically cuts the vocals so that they meld into the beat rather than play over it. Its a fantastic new approach to hip-hop.
Of course, there are standard rap numbers in which the several guest rappers on the album flow over Herren's fantastically original beats. "Plastic" and "Huevos" spotlight the talented raps of Diverse and Mr. Lif, respectively. Yet despite these rappers' great abilities, the instrumentation takes precident. Prefuse's beats are so alien and ahead of their time. Just like Timbaland and Dre have crafted their own distinctive hip-hop production, so has Prefuse 73. Herren's beats are something out of the pages of glitch and techno, similar to what you would hear on a Autechre, Plaid, Aphex Twin or even Mouse on Mars album. The sounds are harsh, crunchy and sharp; yet at the same time undeniably rhythmic. Several instrumental numbers emphasize this wonderful amalgam of electronica and hip-hop.

Regardless of what people are saying, this album can't be catergorized in any genre besides the vague and anomalous term "progressive music." I say that with full confidence that, even with the guest MCs and beat manipulation, one cannot consider this solely an instrumental, electronic hip hop album. There is simply too much going on, a musical overload across every frequency, music so coordinated and organized that it is even stifling. Going from any genre to this album (jazz, classical, even independent) is like shooting for the moon yet ending up in Mars, yet a comfortable and enjoyable trip.
An important distinction to make about One Word Extinguisher is the fact that it is a complete disc. Although certain individual tracks are astonishing, only a few of them take on song form due to the rapid changes mid-track. The listener is forced to sit and absorbe the entire record, not just for the beats but for the samples. Thus, after listening to this CD, there are very few things you'll actually remember about it because you have heard so much. Do you remember the upbeat and great cooperation on "Plastic," the fantastic song that is the title track, or do you remember the final sample on "90% Of My Mind is With You"? That is entirely up to the listener, and therefore the major reason this disc is so successful: Herren's work outshines his purpose.
To sum it up, the ingenius musicality present on this album makes it one of the albums of the year, bar none.

If there is something that proves hip hop can be a limitless, utterly compelling thing, this is it. Every bit as nuanced and produced as IDM electronic music, this takes pure hip hop elements, and filters them down through relentless breakbeats, and lovely electo textures. Attacking straight out of the box with the jazzed out turntablism of "The End of Biters- International" then segwaying into the contemporary hip hop of "Plastic", this more than any thing out there shows the heights this music can be taken to, and that's further than the eye can see. The utter attention to detail can not only be admired, but enjoyed thoroughly. This keeps the entire record well within the lines of excellence, making it a real treat for anyone who loves the feel of either music (ie: hip hop, electronic). Prefuse 73 has an utterly excellent musical proposal that will probably keep him away from mainstream acceptance, but virtually guarantees his ascension to greatness in both the hip hop, and electronic undergrounds, if he isn't there already.

must confess I made a bit of a leap into the unknown with this album. I am a serious fan of their label buddies Aphex Twin, but I knew before purchase that it would be vastly different. I was not disappointed. In this album this listener is presented with a mix of electronica, hip-hop, chilled synth, some really ecclectic sounds that I just can't categorize, and wierd vocal interludes. I think the best way to describe this would be some sort of thinking-man's DJ Shadow. When you have moved on in your taste, and listened to that genre to the extent you have had enough, then this would be a great advance. Its pretty chilled out, but provides some really interesting listening, rather than simply melting into the background. The album is hugely varied, with some dub-fuelled human beat-boxing going on, though its not as dark as something like Deadly Avenger.
I would thoroughly advise what is simply a very good album and a pleasure to listen to, plus the cover is nice!
