Lex Records Presents: Prefuse 73, Asher Roth Collaborator Michael Christmas (Fudge) & Alex Mali's Lady Parts-referencing "In My Shoes"

"Fudge came together during several sessions in the summer and fall of 2015 at Nick Hook's Green Point studio. Prefuse 73 [Guillermo Scott Herren] brought along a hard drive full of beats. [Michael] Christmas wrote to the instrumentals in the studio, and recorded the vocals the same day, as friends swung by to check it out; some of the drop-ins at the studio ended up joining in the recording, not least D.R.A.M. who brings lifted soul vocals on the album track "All Points South,'" Lex Records wrote within a comprehensive on-site Fudge press release earlier this past week. Although this is Herren's first full-length recorded alongside an emcee, he's previously worked with a number of revered Hip-Hop legends including, but not limited to Ghostface Killah, Jewel-runner El-P, Mos Def, Aesop Rock, fellow Lex label mate DOOM, GZA, Death Grips drummer Zach Hill, and RJD2; while Michael Christmas is "a 22-year-old Boston emcee, who has spent the last two years dropping his debut and sophomore mixtapes and touring the USA, opening for Logic and Mac Miller." Christmas recently appeared alongside Asher Roth and fellow newcomer Larry June on one of the "I Love College" emcee's countless post-RetroHash loosies, "Laundry." Fudge's premier Lady Parts single, complete with provocative Todd James-designed artwork, "In My Shoes" is a slightly disjointed and beautifully spaced out Hip-Hop jam that's reminiscent of fellow Manchester-based Electro-Hip-Hop producer Star Slinger and Four Tet's J Dilla & Guilty Simpson-assisted "AS SERIOUS as your life" (Jay Dee Remix). Prefuse 73 & Michael Christmas' debut project together as Fudge, Lady Parts, is currently available for pre-order at the Lex Records Shop in your choice of Ltd. ed. 12" coloured vinyl or CD packages, ahead of their 15-track album's impending September 9th release date.
