MusicfestNW: Prefuse 73, Natasha Kmeto, The Great Mundane, Braxton Palmer 

When: Fri., Sept. 6, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $15
Located somewhere in between the legacy established by the MPC-soul-vival of J Dilla and the futro-jazz of Flying Lotus, Guillermo Scott Herren's work as Prefuse 73 functions as an essential layer in the bedrock of contemporary sample-centric beat production. A true alchemist of style and source, Herren enacts an aural concoction of psych-rock, jazz, SFX, and other disparate origins of sound to fabricate a visceral realm of fusion as an elemental foundation of songcraft. Prefuse 73 is best known for constructing cinematic, head-nodding instrumentals, yet his collaborations with members of Sunn 0))), School of Seven Bells, and Hella point toward Herren's talent for enveloping concrete beats with ambient soundscapes and dedication to sonic ambiguity. Together with Natasha Kmeto, this show guarantees to entertain and elevate with electronic music that moves mind and muscle. WYATT SCHAFFNER
