Amoeba Review

07/08/2013

Mu-Ziq’s first album in six years presents a nocturnal journey of moonlight synthesizers and intricate breakbeats. “Christ Dust’s” odd time signature and comet-surging synths get met head-on halfway through by a percolating synth that makes the whole thing a mind-bending, syncopated wonder. Similarly, “Wipe” features pleasing house chords that it undercuts with off-time beats. But it’s not all head music. “Twangle Melkas’” four-chord structure echoes many classic pop songs; “Melting Bas” calls to mind the new-wave bands of Mike Paradinas’ youth; and “Tickly Flanks” should please anyone looking for a new take on classic Detroit techno. And within Chewed Corners’ dark, fascinating recesses are beautiful, pop-oriented bits, like the funnily titled “Weakling Paradinas,” which closes the album on a serene note. Though he’s been away for some time, Paradinas hasn’t lost any of his beat-making magic on his eighth album, weaving together numerous strains of electronica into a seamless whole.
