Art Basel Week: Prefuse 73 and Eliot Lipp, Dec. 7


Shoring up Heathrow's more dancefloor-friendly offerings is tonight's party, which tends more towards the experimental and heavy. Prefuse 73 was born Guillermo Scott Herren in Miami but grew up in Atlanta; still, he remains popular locally thanks to his releases on labels like Schematic and Warp. With a dizzying discography under a number of monikers, he remains best known for his warped outings that dredge the more leftfield reaches of rock and hip-hop into tweaked IDM. He's also responsible for signing his partner on the decks for the night, Eliot Lipp, to his Eastern Developments record label. Heavily influenced by west coast hip-hop and anything created on the 808, Lipp's sound drags boom-bap electro into the future.

Ages 21+ with ID; Heathrow Lounge, 681 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. 305-534-7614;
