The prolific and greatly innovative force that is Guillermo S. Herren (a.k.a. Prefuse 73Savath & Savalas, Piano Overlord, and Delarosa & Asora) has announced Yellow Year, a new record label co-founded with photographer Angel Ceballos. Their initial offering is an EP from Sons of the Morning (Prefuse 73 & the always amazing producer/artist, Teebs...available now on Yellow Year) as a part of a twelve volume Speak Soon series, each installment paring Prefuse with a fellow production luminary for all new collaborative work. Upcoming EPs will feature collaborations with Nosaj Thing, Lapalux, Synkro, Nathan Fake, Dimlite and more TBA. We're looking forward to giving this one a full length listen...

There has been some low-key hype for this label launch, as well as this first release, including this amazing ten-minute "preview" video:

Also accompanying this first release, Pre & Teebs have cut a mix including a number of the duo's influence for the self-titled EP :

“Over the past couple of years of working on many ‘Sons of the Morning songs’, we’ve probably spent an equal amount of time glued to YouTube and listening to other people’s music between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and noon. Although, it would be impossible to fit every single thing we became intrigued with on a 40-minute mix, these are some standouts during our journeys. A retrospect of sounds, so to speak.”

That mix is titled, Needle Exchange 133, and is available here :
