Great album Mike - probably your best and most consistent work!

There is something very soothing and timeless about this record. Just listened to it for the first time in about 15 years or so and it really has aged well. Loads of smooth Moog type sine wave lead synth sounds, lush pads and organs placed over extremely well programmed glitch scattery beats with just a little melancholy. Definitely his best work IMO. Well worth digging out. If the Clangers had Logic this is what they would make ;)

Well, perhaps not an 'absolute genius', but certainly one of the originals, much imitated. Muzik magazine, in 1997 asked "his most accessible record yet?" perhaps so, the beats aren't so messed up you can't get into them, and this is good pre-DSP beat-trickery.

Mike Paradinas, the man behind U-ziq, is an absolute genius. In the mid 90's he hung out with Tom Jenkinson (Squarepusher), Richard D. James (Aphex Twin), and Luke vibert (Plug, Wagon Christ) His style feature more funk/jazzish stylings, with flowing atmospherics with a spacey feel. This best track on this album is the first track!
