    Jhelli Beam

    A dashing young figure in the Los Angeles underground hip hop scene, Busdriver returns with his latest, Jhelli Beam, both smart and smartass, theatrical without being pompous, and, as always, funny as hell. Busdriver's legendarily breath-defying flow teeters precariously on top of samples of classical music, jazz drumming and proggy guitar parts, without ever losing sight of the electronic music that helped define his sound, enthralled fans and stood out from the beats that weighed down much of his contemporaries' work. And as usual, Busdriver has some heavy friends to help out: legendary underground battle rapper Nocando guests on a classically witty Busdriver track Least Favorite Rapper while Islands' precocious Nick Thorburn's influence can be heard on an almost ELO-flavored song Happy Insider. The sum of Jhelli Beam's seemingly disparate parts creates a record that is mindfully engaging and booty shaking at the same time a wholly unique take on what an underground hip-hop album should be.


    Busdriver is one of the featured pioneering rappers in the new documentary This Is The Life, documenting the underground scene that evolved around The Good Life Caf? in South Central L.A.

    Bones

    Described as a call to action, a document of personal and collective uprising, 'Bones' is Son Lux's fourth album since producer-composer Ryan Lott started working under the name in 2007. Having recently evolved into a three-piece with guitarist-composer Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang, 'Bones' comes after what you might typically describe as a whirlwind couple of years that have seen Lott work with Lorde, Boots, Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, Busdriver and more.

    Rivington Nao Rio

    Rivington Não Rio revels in the kind of compassionate
    complexity that marks Prefuse 73's greatest works, with a
    profound new element added to the mix: Patience.
    Guillermo S. Herren's ability to marry the manic to the
    melodic has always been uncanny, but here it feels
    downright magical as the songs inhale with his trademark
    sense of urgency then exhale in longer, more revealing
    breaths. The prismatic textures that have long been a staple
    of Prefuse 73 are bound to beats and melodies with the
    spirit of hip-hop and the subtlety of modern minimalism. The
    album's guests treat the material with a hushed respect: Roc
    Nation songwriter and Jessie Ware collaborator Sam Dew
    turns Infrared into a sublimely soulful, dimly-lit portrait of
    inverted R&B; Milo & Busdriver's vicious, rapid-fire verses
    contrast a pastoral downbeat to brilliant effect; and
    elsewhere, Pinback's Rob Crow and Latin electronic-folk
    crooner Helado Negro navigate splintered tropics with
    passive grace.


    As a stand-alone album, Rivington Não Rio ranks
    extraordinarily high in the Prefuse 73 canon. As a
    centerpiece to an epic triptych that includes the Forsyth
    Gardens and Every Color of Darkness EPs, it's a new peak
    from a pioneer who appears to only just now be hitting his
    prime. For an artist who has played an undeniably integral
    role in the careers of so many influential artists, it's not just
    refreshing to hear him return to top form...it's revelatory.

    Golden Skies

    It speaks volumes for how long we've been waiting for the debut Brainfeeder album from Mono/Poly that when Flying Lotus first got in touch with him about doing something for the label, it was via Myspace. The wait, though, has been worth it. Specializing in a kind of beat-driven cosmic soundscape which he describes as "electronic-classical-alchemy music," Mono/Poly aka Charles Dickerson has drawn on the lessons he's learned from collaborating on last year's Thundercat album as well as the Flash Bang Grenada hip hop project with Busdriver and Nocando, and made a beautifully realized, endlessly expansive record.


    From the first orchestral trills of "Winds of Change" you know you're in for something special. As the track builds the listener notices not only the content but also the production chops - this is a record which sounds exactly as big, glossy and up front as its creator wants it to. Rebekah Raff adds scintillating harp work to "Transit to the Gold Planet," but it's the way Dickerson integrates it and builds on it which is really special. "Ra Rise" sounds like sunbathing in space, Niki Randa's abstracted topline vocal warming you right through. Title track, "Golden Skies" uses a looping piano riff reminiscent of Bach, Thelonious Monk and Wu Tang on E, all at once, without sounding like any of them. Add sternum- thrumming bass to that and you know exactly what's what. "Alpha & Omega" does something clever with slowed down d&b licks and tweaked vocal snips. "Empyrean" features Mendee Ichikawa (of the band Free Moral Agents), an ethereal, ghostly presence. "Night Garden" sounds like a drive through the dark streets of an alternate LA. "Euphoria" uses a simple, military-style snare and then twines keyboard lines over it until it's lifted into the sky. Thundercat joins in on last track, "Gamma," and adds some perfectly-judged low-end riffing to anchor Dickerson's keyboard swirls.


    Mono/Poly has been a name to watch since his debut, The George Machine, back in 2009. His 2011 EP release for Brainfeeder, Manifestations, was supported by artists as diverse as Radiohead and Erykah Badu and his work on Thundercat's Apocalypse established once and for all the quality of his productions. With Golden Skies he has laid down a marker to any other "beat maker" out there. Because with a genuine producer with this much talent, everyone else needs to aim a little bit higher - up towards the golden skies.

    Sacrifices (Awaiting Repress)

    Guillermo Scott Herren is a producer who has been based in Atlanta, Barcelona and New York City. Herren releases music under the aliases
    Prefuse 73, Delarosa & Asora, Ahmad Szabo, and Piano Overlord, and is also part of the groups Savath y Savalas, Sons of the Morning, Fudge,
    Risil, and Diamond Watch Wrists.


    Herren began his career working in commercial studios in Atlanta. Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives, his first album as Prefuse 73 -- after
    lower-key releases as/with Delarosa, Delarosa & Asora, and Savath & Savalas -- not only buried but cut up and spliced voices as well as allowing
    some more straightforward vocals from several MCs. The 2003 follow-up, One Word Extinguisher, carried on in a similar vein.


    Surrounded by Silence, the successor to One Word Extinguisher, was released in 2005, featuring collaborations with rappers Ghostface and
    Aesop Rock, plus Blonde Redhead and EL-P. Three months later, an EP of recordings made with the band the Books appeared, titled Reads the
    Books. The next Prefuse record, 2006's Security Screenings, was relatively light on collaborations; it featured only two guests, Four Tet's Kieran
    Hebden and TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe. Preparations, featuring Battles drummer John Stanier on one track, followed in 2007, and
    Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian appeared in 2009. Herren focused on collaborative projects in 2010, flexing his production muscles via
    dates, remixes, or cameos with everyone from Zach Hill (Diamond Watch Wrists) to Oneohtrix Point Never to TV on the Radio. His 2011
    production The Only She Chapters continued the familial feeling, with a wealth of features for female vocalists.


    A few years later, newly inspired, Herren returned to the Prefuse 73 moniker with a flurry of releases on Temporary Residence Limited -- an outlet
    endorsed by friends Nigel Godrich (Ultraísta) and Hebden -- beginning with the 25th entry into the label's Travels in Constants EP series. The
    album Rivington Não Rio, featuring guest appearances by Busdriver, Rob Crow, and Helado Negro, was flanked by the EPs Forsyth Gardens and
    Every Color of Darkness. During that summer and fall, Herren recorded several sessions with MC Michael Christmas under the name Fudge. The
    duo's playful debut full-length, Lady Parts, arrived on Lex Records in September of 2016.
