Earlier this year we released When Man is Full He Falls Asleep from Epstein, who is also known 'round these parts as Helado Negro or Roberto Lange. After getting the album out in the open, Roberto asked friends Prefuse 73 and Jaytram, drummer for Yeasayer, to mine the extensive Epstein backcatalog and craft it into something altogether new. Duly appointed, the two carefully took the usual notions of accuracy and sanctity usually associated with remixes and ate them promptly for brunch. The result is the aptly named Prefuse 73/Jaytram/Epstein, an album replete with layers, thick beats, and sonic exploration. Expect it when we open the doors to asthmatickitty.com on the morning of December 13th.
