"Prefuse 73, unlike Brazil 66, is the work of a lone gun; a super-sharpshooter by the name of Scott Herren, though he's often mistaken for post-rock jazzbo Savath & Savalas (LP of Hefty last year) and digital subverter Delarosa & Asora (recent EP and LP on Schematic). On Vocal Studies... melancholy pre-fusion jazz passages (hence the name) are infused with punctuating vinyl drops while being brought to a boil over simmering beats and electronic glitchwork. Guest MC spots (from the likes of Aesop Rock, MF Doom, Mikah 9 and Sam Prekop) are deconstructed and re-animated into percussive instrumentation. Make no mistake about it, Prefuse 73 is where Scott Herren's passions truly flower. Vocal Studies... draws together elements from his alter-egos to craft a devastating blend of downtempo instrumental hip hop that opens a new vista for the genre to explore."
