Req Car Paint Scheme

Req is a spray can/graffiti artist, which why the artwork is so interesting. He constructs his music much like his art, open to go in all directions, which it does. There are little noisy static bursts used as beats, whereas some the rhythm on some tracks sounds like a regular drum kit. All sorts of strange sounds abound, ambient droning, short samples, noises of unknown items, and a lot of infected Casio-like tones making the listening experience quite varied. There are hip-hop inflections to the beats, some tracks are almost danceable, and he also does some rapping on a few. Even some ’70s style groove exists in the music. It all has a lo-fi, rough sound to it, which sometimes works, sometimes not. Beat driven, fun and different. (Warp)
