Tango N' Vectif immediately paired the young bedroom rat with contemporary Richard D. James of Aphex Twin, whose label µ-Ziq's album appeared on. The offbeat envelope-pushing themes and (occasionally) heavily distorted percussion sees the comparison through, but that's where the similarity ends. -Ziq's only full-length work with former bandmate Francis Naughton.

There are a very small number of albums that have affected me this quickly and drastically. In 1993, taking the name of his old band that he played in with friends, u-Ziq released Tango N' Vectiv. The really incredible part behind all of this is that Mike Paradinas (the man behind the album) was living in his mother's home, creating all of this music in a basement on a Casio FZ-1 keyboard with no musical training

Most of the material on Tango n' Vectif was composed well before its release, and in places, the album betrays its age. The granular fidelity sounds unrefined, and straightforward instrumental arrangements like those of the "Phragmal Synthesis" suite have long since fallen out of favor with the "intelligent" crowd. But nitpicking aside, Tango is by all measures a truly staggering album. Against Tango n' Vectif, even such notably progressive albums sound dated and one-dimensional. And in today's climate of vain experimentation, scrupulous precision and perfect sound, xB5-Ziq's debut, in all its raw glory, continues to hold its own. It's hard to believe that a gangly young recluse with no musical training could imagine such bold, poignant textures from the confines of a bedroom. The self-titled opening track wastes no time in showing you where the album stands.

Reissued, Remastered. Although the orchestrations are not nearly as complicated in this album as they are in Paradinas' later works (Lunatic Harness especially coming to mind) it does far surpass the other ambient techno albums around at the time (Richard D. James' included). At first listen to this album, it does seem rather dated. Most of the sounds are being produced by old synths. The production value is clearly analogue, and the the drums are still repetitive and distorted.
