Product Description

Product Description

Earlier this year, to celebrate 20 years of µ-Ziq and Planet Mu's 300th release, Mike Paradinas, owner of Planet Mu prepared this carefully compiled album charting unreleased productions from the start of his career in the early nineties. Curated by his wife and partner in the band Heterotic, Lara Rix-Martin, the twelve tracks on this album run the gamut of his various styles from the placid, evocative ambient rhodes of 'Air' to the syncopated industrial techno of 'Toy Gun #2' and lots more inbetween. The album opens with the woozy yet elegant counterpoint of 1993's 'Jewel Tea' which swiftly descends into distorted HR-16 drum machine chaos. 'Vinxel' switches to a more stately mood with it's woodblock bassline and measured 4/4 pulse keeping pace with one of those patent µ-Ziq melodies you'd swear you've heard somewhere before. Both 'Trail Quest' and 'Spooky Tooth' continue in this melodic vein until the aforementioned 'Air' slows it all down with a much needed breather. The second half of the album goes into darker territory with the detuned mandolin and piano of 'Str06' duelling it out with its low-slung hip hop beat. 'Diala' sustains the reverb drenched mood while adding a sweeter edge as a synth line makes an appearance straight out of his 1993 album Tango N'Vectif'. 1995's 'Airto' brings some Marimba pierced dark cut-up jungle and the album finally starts to settle down with the Peel Session tracks 'Johnson's Q-Fab' and the classic 'Green Lanes'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant past work 22 July 2013

This is a brilliant collection of a man twiddling in his bedroom creating melodies and rhythms. I find it's amazing these tracks are from '93 thru '95 because they seem so timeless.
