By Prefuse 73
Class of 73 Bells is the first single from the Miami born producer Scott Herren's (aka Prefuse 73) forthcoming album 'Preparations'.
The fusion of flute, strings, bells and extraordinary vocals from the New York based twin-sisters Claudia and Alejandra Deheza (from the outfit School Of Seven Bells) provide a vivid multi-layered platform for which the simple beats are excused.
The release also features the impressive 'Smoking Red' with spoken voice samples and off- kilter beats, the slightly disappointing 'En Blanco' and a drum-free take on the single.
Prefuse 73's orchestrated & otherworldly hip-hop sound might not strike a chord with everyone, but Class Of 73 Bells is a refreshing release which should wet the appetite of the Warp Records faithful. Well worth the purchase.
