Format: Audio CD
Graffiti artist Req is another artist on the hallowed Warp label, though he isn't as well know as his more obtuse or challenging labelmates, his music (along with Prefuse 73's) seems to embody the butchered 21st Century hip-hop ideal Warp have created in their web-design, artwork and promotion and is a product of the newer type of IDM, gone are the icy synths and geeky bedroom production, here are the cool funky chopped up flipped and reversed soundz booyah.
Car Paint Scheme is the sound of intricately programmed vintage drum machines slowly grooving along at a retro disco sometime in the 2020s. Here the BPM or melody isn't the focus its the skill that Req has put in to create some of the catchiest and most memorable Roland work this side of the Artificial Intelligence series. Some of the track titles pay homage to some of the more obscure hardware drum machines of the 80s and 90's (Roland Rhythm 77, Yamaha RY). Train Jam is a particular standout track - field recordings of a train station an insanely funky '60s looped guitar and a drum machine all bop heads in unison. The tracks with ultra-Cockney MC Kid Acne fit in really well with the instrumental tracks and act as a bit of variation.
I don't know how it fits in with Req's previous releases because I haven't heard them but I'd say this was a great release for 2003 if you want to put on some background music for a smoke or if your out taggin turf with your crew (?) either way it comes recommended from me.

didn't know who he was, but figured it was good, cuz he was on warp. I was right, nice beat record with abstract sounds. if you dig on DJ Shadow's Preemtive strike, chances are you will like this. Kid Acne does a nice suprise rap half way through the album.
