best µ-Ziq release(es)

Recommended Posts

Guest mrgerbik

while I'm pretty versed in electronic music in general, the one artist who I don't know much about is µ-Ziq. what do you think some of his best albums/ep's are? which should I check out? I tend to gravitate towards stuff that you can jam out to in the car...

It's all good. Royal Astronomy would probably be good driving music.

PHI*1700 (U/V) 12" or Tango n Vectif all the way

saw him support Orbital once playing these and he kicked their arses. his beats were vibrating the place. Brilliant

Royal Astronomy is my fave

Bluff Limbo

Tango n Vectif

 

Also, even tho it's not under mu-ziq, Slazenger's Makesaracket is a wicked album, get that too

ok, so after a few days of a lot of µ-ziq, I'm digging on tango n vectif, bluff limbo and lunatic harness.

If you want to get an overview of his output, check my all-µZiq megamix I did for the last year's anniversary of his debut album:

 

 

Apart from that, Lunatic Harness is just brilliant!

Bilious Paths is similar to Lunatic Harness, both are spectacular. Some of Royal Astronomy is in the same vein too

 

He went through a few phases IMO - his first few albums up to In Pine Effect are clunky crunchy endeavours. The next few up to Bilious are much more jungle-inspired

^"Jackal" actually came out under the Kid Spatula moniker, on the album Meast. There's more good ones from that, but I can't find my favorite, called "Buttress":

Listening to this album for the first time in yonks, Mike makes pretty OTT use of this on Hot Fumes, thievin' bastard!

 

He's on top form as Slazenger on Makesaracket, I know that album better, full of playful tunes

like, correct me if i'm wrong.... I'm seeming to be forgetting these fun-facts... Those releases were pretty epic, sans the very few mediocre tracks.

 

love to jam out, too. i was under the impression that it was a 'she' collaborating with RDJs personal 'he', ... or on his/her own time (singularly, or together)....

 

Didn't I hear that those were sometimes jam sessions (at the time) mixed by a distant cousin of his in wales? Is that true?
