Prefuse 73 is the alias for producer and DJ Scott Herren, who also performs under the names Delarosa & Asora, Ahmad Szabo, and Piano Overlord, as well as being part of groups Savath y Savalas, Sons of the Morning, Fudge, Risil, and Diamond Watch Wrists.
He began his career DJing at MJQ, a small night club in Atlanta, and then began working in commercial studios producing hip-hop tracks for Dirty South rappers. However, Herren wanted to create his own music and started collecting second-hand instruments and drum machines.
Herren first released music under the name Prefuse 73 with 2001's commercially and critically successful 'Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives'. A year later, an EP 'The '92 vs. '02 Collection' was released. In 2003, Herren released the full-length album 'One Word Extinguisher', one of his best known Prefuse 73 albums. A companion album, 'Extinguished: Outtakes' was released afterwards showing off some of the production "outtakes" and remixes that were omitted from the initial full-length.
He went on to release seven more albums under the moniker, with latest 'Sacrifices' out in 2018.
