µ-Ziq - Lunatic Harness (1997)

Definitely the Mike Paradinas release; weird arrangements and abstract melodies between this breakbeat madness make this something special. A more funky/jazzy style than the other pillars of electronic music in the '90s (Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Vibert, etc.), it combines both melody and rhythm without focusing on one of these dimensions only. A really excellent work, and it sure will have an influence on other artists in drum n bass/breakbeat for a long time to come.
