The Timewriter Paintbox
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Plastic City
In 2002, Jean F. Cochois (a.k.a. The Timewriter) produced a lush, stirring masterpiece, the oft-overlooked Diary of a Lonely Sailor. But Cochois‘ fourth LP for Plastic City offers what he‘s better known for: the deep, atmospheric tech-house that has come to define that label‘s sound. The club-oriented Paintbox doesn‘t really compare to Diary‘s emotional scope, but it‘s enjoyable in its own right. "Reachin‘ Out," souped up with Cochois‘ bouncy synth licks, is a love letter to early ‘90s deep house, while "Room of a Million Rainbows" sounds like a throaty ‘80s pop ballad that could inspire serious tongue-jousting sessions.
