Prefuse 73 "Storms over Raqqa"

Prefuse 73 "Storms over Raqqa"

As previously reported, there's going to be a lot of material coming our way from Prefuse 73 this year. But before he delivers two EPs and an album through new label home Temporary Residence Ltd., he's offering up a freebie single titled "Storms over Raqqa."

The track, as you'll discover down below, is a complex, cut-and-paste freakout. Prefuse 73 rips apart dancehall rhythms via a series of pulsating percussive tones, while the track is also driven by a series of ecstatic and glitchy vocal parts. It's kind of a hot mess, but the jumbled number is still surprisingly pleasing. You'll find it streaming at the bottom of the page and over on Bandcamp.

As for the not so distant future, Prefuse 73 delivers the Forsyth Gardens EP on April 28, his Rivington Não Rio LP on May 12, and the Every Color of Darkness EP on July 14.
