SONS OF THE MORNING (PREFUSE 73 & TEEBS) – SPEAK SOON VOLUME ONE
Two great beatmakers which almost feel like they’re from different eras, Prefuse 73’s best work coming in the early 00’s with classic albums like One Word Extinguisher. Those big beats are a world away from this project where fusty, dusty grooves ebb and flow with tense restraint. But the two compliment each other: while Teebs’ solo work often meanders into nothingness, this hook up has somehow given his work a more definitive and satisfactory purpose. Meanwhile, Prefuse has been handed a new lease of life. Not a perfect EP by any stretch, but there’s enough quality here to warrant multiple listens.
