Jeff Mills Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Loves a sub-label, does Jeff Mills. His Axis Records imprint already has several offshoots - Luxury Records, Purpose Maker, Something In The Sky - but the Detroit techno legend clearly feels like he needs another pie to stick his finger into. Thus have we the eponymous first release of his new Str Mrkd venture. Music-wise it’s pretty classic Mills, though closer ‘Aquarius’ is a more experimental brand of club fodder than we might expect from him.

Coming at us via jazz colossus Blue Note is this interesting thing: a 4-track 10" from Tony Allen & Jeff Mills which they've called "Tomorrow Comes The Harvest". So that's Allen the legendary jazz drummer and Afrobeatist making sweet rhythmic music with Mills the Detroit Techno Titan. Two futurists with some serious chops that accompany their intimidating CVs combine on this record to bring us a rhythmical conversation. Nice.
Rather than a lady, Spiral Deluxe are channelling Voodoo Magic but thats not the only thing of note about this supergroup, their drummer and percussionist is none other than Jeff Mills. Yes that Jeff Mills. They are a group of skilled musicians making music with no creative boundaries blending jazz, funk pop, house and techno in one enormous globule of sound.
Jeff Mills is on a constant mission to involve his audience with the process of making and dance music itself. With his second Exhibitionist installment he brought us into his workflow and how he translates his improvisations from initial reaction out through his many machines. This vinyl has 4 of these improvisations from the DVD sessions. All released through Mills’ own label Axis.

Techno legend Jeff Mills is still churning out tracks at the rate of an industrial 4x4 Detroit beat, only sometimes taking a break to work on soundtracks. His latest project is the soundtrack for Tatsushi Ohmori’s love-affair thriller Let There Be Light, originally released as Hikari. We're expecting some cinematographic beats.
This Lost In Space 12” is part of a collaboration between techno veteran Jeff Mills and the classical Orchestre National Du Capitole de Toulouse. The full version of the piece will arrive next year in album form and in live performance, but for now this five track EP, produced to audiophile standards, gives us listeners an exciting insight into the work. On Axis.

Jeff Mills with Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto Casa da Música
Talk about clash of the titans, or maybe one titan doffing his hat to another. Not a reworking or revisit to the now hundred year old compositions by Gustav Holst but more of a tribute by the godfather of techno, taking the same journey as Holst and bringing the idea up to date blending classical scoring with contemporary musical elements.
Detroit techno heavyweight Jeff Mills has recorded a new soundtrack to the extremely significant early George Méliés film A Trip To The Moon, produced in 1902(!). Although the film is only sixteen minutes long, this soundtrack album release extends the compositions so to the length of an hour. Edition of 1000 CDs on the Axis label.

With the first track The Hunter coming from his recent Free Fall Galaxy album, the remaining two tracks are unreleased, and follow a similar tension-laced detroit path. Asphyxiation is more upfront with kitchen pot-like percussion loops and panning analog burps, And The Kill Zone has a Forbidden Planet vibe to it.
Detroit Techno don Jeff Mills recently continued his lengthy Sleeper Wakes sci-fi story series with the Free Fall Galaxy album. This release, The Domino Effect, extracts 4 fine cuts from that record and presents them in fully DJ-friendly 12” format. Needless to say, this Mills material is good and strong, and has a particularly spacey, cosmic twist.
Techno king Jeff Mills returns with another instalment of his sci-fi themed project Sleeper Wakes. Free Fall Galaxy, the ninth part of the series, tells a proper story about some sort of space chase, but it is also pretty pumping as dancing material, as you’d expect from such an old hand. Released by Mills’ very own label, Axis.
Detroit techno legend Jeff Mills completes his Exhibitionist 2 series with this final vinyl 12”. Recorded at a 2015 live performance in the Netherlands, this series has showcased why Mills is still one of the rawest and most exciting techno producers working. Almost twenty years after he founded Underground Resistance, his virtuoso DJ skills are sharper than ever.
Jeff Mills has long been regarded as an originator, and rightly so. Exhibitionist 2 has him pushing things forward again by attempting to show audiences what an ambitious live DJ is actually doing. Turns out it isn’t just pressing play. Multiple shows with multiple camera angles show the techno maestro at work: CD of some unreleased tracks too!
This is the first instalment of 12" EP from the ‘Exhibitionist 2’ series created by Jeff Mills. This is a sort of ‘how to’ concept record documenting the process and interaction between artist and technology when creating dance music in an attempt to demystify the process and promote a deeper understanding of the creative process.
Reinventing the soundtrack to Fritz Lang’s 1929 sci-fi classic Woman in the Moon, Jeff Mills is here to treat us all to a contemporary reworking of the accompanying music. Apart from updating the movie to suit our modern tastes, Mills’ soundtrack also deserves your attention in its own right.
‘When Time Splits’ was created when highly acclaimed classical pianist Mikhaïl Rudy and electronic music pioneer Jeff Mills collaborated on a project to create the soundtrack to ‘L’Enfer’, a film that was never completed by Henri-Georges Clouzot. Recorded for the Duos Ephémères concert at Auditorium du Louvre in Paris, the record captures sixty minutes of the intense, spontaneous live music experience.
This audio-visual combo comes from Jaqueline Caux and a proficient techno artist known to you and I as Jeff Mills. The documentary is scored by the DJ/producer, who offers up sixteen cuts, twelve of which are brand new and totally original. It's a forward-thinking soundtrack for a reflective piece of collaborative art.
Prominent 80s DJ and techno icon Jeff Mills originally released 'Waveform Transmissions Vol. 1' in 1992; it was his debut record and is considered a pioneering work in the type of electronic music that now dominates all others. Rawer than the works he would go on to make -- a darker and quite Berlin-influenced work on his part -- 'Waveform Transmissions Vol. 1' shows off a one of a kind minimalist.
