Mike Paradinas, the artist better known as µ-Ziq, has unveiled a new EP called Goodbye.
The six-track EP is the first in a series of releases by the pioneering British artist, all of which are centred around the 25th Anniversary Edition of Lunatic Harness, his classic 1997 album. It’s inspired by Paradinas going back through the archives while he was remastering the album, and it sees him revisiting the ’90s, taking on jungle and its precursor jungle tekno, and “upgrading them with the benefit of hindsight and contemporary software,” we’re told. Goodbye approaches these old genres “like a sandpit, and stretches them in directions only Mike might take.”
According to Paradinas, the release is imbued with his “lush sense of melody” and his “knack for striking contrasts.” We’re not to be shocked to hear maudlin piano, 303, and amens in the same track.
