    XTLP sounds great, although some of the best tracks were already on XTEP.

    My Christmas wish this year is for David Lynch to commission a film score from Mike.

    in my opinion µ-Ziq sounds way better than Autechre. I didn't listen to their whole discography , but from what i heard i think µ-Ziq has batter production qualities. What do you think people? Of course the tastes are divided, but they are on the top of their genre, which is new for me, but i'm starting to love it. I want to hear more opinions :)

    Well, ambient music is a spectrum. Mu-ziq is on the other side as dark ambient, and is on the other side as drone. It's more like ambient techno, which I call post-techno. Have you heard Strawberry Fields Hotel? Then you can see what I am talking about in regards to light.
