Prefuse 73
Prefuse 73
Guillermo S. Herren (Prefuse 73), has recently released his first solo album in three years. Following a detour into fractured, kaleidoscopic hip-hop on recent releases, Herren has become increasingly interested in injecting a sense of space into his characteristically complex productions. The resultant 17-track collection is akin to watching an old photograph deteriorate in one’s hands, as otherwise dense beats dissipate into airy expanses of emotionally resonant electronics. Its effect is not unlike attempting to recall a murky memory of a dream of Herren’s earliest works, imbibed with the subtlety of modern minimalism.

Prefuse 73 has long been distinguished for an unparalleled ability to merge the manic to the melodic, treating head-bobbing hip-hop productions to prismatic editing techniques while retaining a hummable, evocative consonance. 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. But Sacrifices presents new terrain for the enigmatic Herren, a reinvigorated progenitor unafraid to swap his trademark freneticism for patient sonic pointillism, casting his penchant for beat making in an atmospheric new light.”

Chris Devoe
Inspired by childhood memories of jazz records and soul 45's, Chris Devoe creates moods which are both dreamlike and abstract. He is a veteran of Atlanta’s music scene, bridging the city’s underground hip-hop, indie and experimental camps as a DJ and a member of the hip hop duo Social Studies, the band Warsaz, as well as a solo project called With The Moon. He has performed in many of Atlanta’s most popular art and music venues, including 529, Capsule, Eyedrum, The HIGH Museum, Atlanta Contemporary Arts and Mammal Gallery.

As a self-taught musician, Chris' music reflects a life-long interest in diverse genres of music and art, as well as a dedication to designing melodies that honor the contributions of every instrument. His creative process is unmistakably informed by his knowledge of acoustic instrumentation and sampling, bringing the warm textures of analog sound to his distinct electronic style. As a solo artist, Chris has shared the stage with various performers, including Roberto Lange, LebLaze, Dabrye, Richard Devine, Machinedrum, Shigeto, Mykki Blanco and many others. He has also toured internationally in Japan for the music label Arepaz/Beta Bodega Coalition, releasing an album and a number of 12 and 7 inches for the label.
