Mike Paradinas (a.k.a. µ-Ziq) is back with »Magic Pony Ride«, an album of joyful, melodic, jungle-inspired music, and his first LP of new material on the label since 2013. The title reflects the childlike wonder of the album, happy melodies are foregrounded, wordless vocals bounce and echo while sounds bubble and sparkle.
Paradinas had been releasing archival albums but got a taste for making new music after a trip to Wales. This influence of using trips away as a muse is carried on in ’Magic Pony Ride’ after a weekend getaway to found Paradinas riding Icelandic horses across a snowy landscape at dawn. You can almost feel the relaxed wide open spaces in the lush synth chords of the title track and »Uncle Daddy«
