so he is up against some good artists in these here subforums. hes probably not as good as any of them but that doesnt mean he is bad. i think what makes him good is that he has a good ear for melodies and layering them over each other (e.g. Catkin and Teasel) but then he usually puts a grossly inadequate electronic music beat over it and ruins it all but otherwise - yes.

Definitely his melodies, although there is some brilliant rhythm programming (esp on Lunatic Harness)

he has power of enchantment over cats (my cat anyway)


he once tongued my mrs at the george in brixton
(though that can probably be put down as a weakness rather than a strength)

actually she said he was a "good kisser"
so that is probably a strength i guess

ziq a player? i never would have guess it/

:)


his melodies for sure,,, the atmosphere and moods that he creates in his tracks as well
afx does mysterious and sinister quite well, i think mu-ziq pulls off a wider range of feelings in his tracks though

he may not be better than the other artists here, but i'm sure he was on par back in 97-99' before planet-mu started getting in the way.

as to the question .. wot chen said .. he makes fun music .. that makes you all warm inside .. and some danceable breaks too .. when in the mood ...

i cant dig it all but when hes with it hes withit

+ for some reason my browser keeps opening the search bar when i press inverted comma .. so forgive that they are not there and dont use it as a reason to diSs me ...


yeah just imagine the music he would have outputted had he not been running that label ... -sie- .. he might have been one of the daddys ... argh well ..

billious paths is still my fave btw .,..

i've been boycotting this forum since my MIKE PARADINAS HAS GLASSES topic was deleted, while something i meant for general and accidentally posted here (in fact, i wrote that topic since i seemed to be there and have posted something by accident) was left undeleted. in conclusion, MIKE PARADINAS HAS GLASSES

that give +2 to synaesthesia

his melodies are kinda strange, very harmonic but seemingly not related to any kind of "classic" harmony theory or something... its like when you lock a talented young man alonewith a keyboard in a room for a couple of weeks who hasn`t played an instrument in his life

It's the complete package of his sounds, melodies and feeling that makes his music so fucking good. People who fail to recognize his awesomeness are stupid.

his strength is his use of string arangements, his meloncholy, in the earlier days his use of harsh and soft sounds together

his weakness is his lack of new releases

i dreamed mike p came round my house last night and i spent like the whole time he was ther looking for some crappy old john peel tape to put on and show him how cool i was. he just sat there in completely bored silence while my mate played her 11 yr old daughter at chess. the whole while the house which backs on to mine had 3 girls sitting on a settee facing my window and lying on a table in front of them was a naked black dude with an erection.
