[deleted] This is the second album from The Tape, who drafted the help of New York-spawned spoken word artist RQM for the use of live vocals. Out of the eclectic world of Robot Koch's beats and RQM's warm rhymes emerges this broad-stroke impression of contemporary electronic post hip-hop. Previously compared to artists such as Four Tet, DJ Shadow and Prefuse 73, the group weaves together punk, jazz, and electronic music into something completely new, with hip-hop and post-rock as a connecting element. Due to his work as a producer at Data MC (Hamton Recordings) Walera Goodman left The Tape but still contributes the track "Lonely Planet Revisited" to the new album. RQM, who has had mic sessions at the Brooklyn Moon Cafe and Nuyorican Poets Cafe, has also worked with producers such as Al Hacas Mmc (A Different Drummer), G Stone's Stereotyp and Klein's IWolf (Sofa Surfers). From Robot's rough post-hip-hop production to the subversive lyrics of RQM best exemplified on "Hip Hop Is Dead" or "Nuclear Sunset" to the warm soul/electronica of "Heaven," Autoreverse is free from self-reference -- revitalized and global.
