Mike Paradinas has announced the release of a 'lost' LP, Challenge Me Foolish, on his own Planet Mu; his first as μ-Ziq since 2016's Aberystwyth Marine. Recorded around 1998-99, the same era that saw Paradinas tour with Björk and release Royal Astronomy, it highlights his obsession with melody at a time when many of his IDM contemporaries championed complexity over all else.
Hosting a number of tracks featuring Japanese vocalist Kazumi, Challenge Me Foolish lands on April 13th. View the full tracklist below.
