ANTS Podcast #031.5: The Secret Ambient Discography of Mike Paradinas

SUBSCRIBE TO ANTS PODCAST: iTUNES, RSS, SOUNDCLOUD, MIXCLOUD, TUMBLR
Last week I wrote a feature about the legacy of Mike Paradinas (aka µ-Ziq) and its many similarities to that of Aphex Twin. Over the years, Mike has put out many ambient tunes nestled stealthily into his full length releases. Even die-hard fans of the London-born producer may discount the notion of Mike being a force in the genre simply because—unlike Aphex Twin—Mike has strewn these songs about his catalog rather than focusing his ambient efforts into a single listen (e.g., Selected Ambient Works). The feature on Mike included a Spotify playlist of 25 of his ambient songs from his various aliases from throughout his 20+ year career. He's given me the green light to feature this playlist in podcast form, so here you go.

This is a special Mixcloud-only edition of ANTS.
