Prefuse 73 aka Scott Heren is a experimental hip hop producer. Heren began his career working on commercials but has quickly evolved helping to gain recognition to little known MCs. His most popular and acclaimed records are Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives released in 2001 and One Word Extinguisher in 2003.
It should also be noted that Heren has worked under the name Savath & Savalas releasing Folk Songs for Trains, Trees and Honey. Prefuse strives on giving progressive, yet retrospective electronic beats that give props to R& B, soul and hip hop in a simple and smooth groove.
In 2006 Heren is set to release Security Screenings under Prefuse 73 moniker on Feb 07. This prolific multi-instranmentalist is surely one to check out if you have yet to. His newest record is a sure combination of tough, underground hip-hop and fractured electronic beats.

Pitchfork had this to say about the newest Prefuse 73 record:
"...legendary Warp Records will unveil Security Screenings, Scott Herren's latest opus under the Prefuse 73 moniker. Described by its progenitor as "merelya transition" rather than a follow-up to this year's Surrounded By Silence, Security will be Herren's paean to airport security and the "immense amount of respect and care" they've shown him in the post-9/11 era. Tricorder reading: acerbic sarcasm."Buy Prefuse 73's Security Screenings from BoomKat.
