Req, Car Paint Scheme
LP, Warp CD 108 Req was on tour during the summer as part of a Warp thing. I heard that the audiences weren't stupendous but then you'd hardly expect that with most Warp acts being at the art end of whatever spectrum they inhabit. Req is also a visual artist and they did some works along the way. This CD cover has some examples of his pen and ink work. The music combines sound scapey stuff, a little hip-hop, and beats. There are all sorts of interesting and unlikely samples including a short spell of the famous London train 'Mind the gap' announcement. From the collection of ingredients you might be tempted to call this trip-hop but it's more scapey than trip and more art than hop. It is nicely done. (thunderfinger)
