µ-Ziq - Bilious Paths (1995)
The movement within Rephlex Records and later Planet Mu in the early 90s was historic for the electronic scene . µ-Ziq (pronounced mu-sic) is a somewhat underrated in the electronic scene, as most of his work isn't as known to some of his contemporaries. Bilious Paths at the time was still an experimental and some say at points arbitrary. It's what made it so great, IDM was still in an infancy and experimental forms of musicianship were still widespread. µ-Ziq's record tinkers with ambient, ethereal soundscapes as seen in "Siege of Antioch", what seem like odd dance mash-ups and the dark eeriness that ultimately manifests itself within Bilious Paths.
