This review is from: Lunatic Harness (Audio CD)
I first heard of Mike Paradinas (u-ziq) on an online broadcast of a show he did with Amon Tobin in 1997 (I think.) Most of the stuff he spun comes off of this album so I had to have it. I am a fan of electronic music, more so the emotive, experimental end rather than huge, dumb big beat. Lunatic Harness is now one of my favorite picks from my collection. You've never heard such textured and touching sounds behind what is some of the most edgy drill-n-bass ever but to plastic. Strategically placed bass breaks and interwoven sound scapes make this a rather moody work (see 'Hasty Book Alert,' 'Secret Stair' and 'Catkin and Teasel'.) The title track displays some outright wicked beat-boxing along side some scattered beats racing along before dropping you into a rather flowery, upbeat movement before pummeling you with more bass beats. If you want a varied, introspective electronic work, this is what you're looking for.
