The LP has been entitled ‘The Override Switch‘ and will be coming out on October 15, 2021 under the Axis label, and will be released in double vinyl and digital formats. Something that stands out about this album, is the concept behind the elaboration of it, that gives the control back to the musicians, and gives an unprecedented opportunity to develop a sound within an undisturbed environment, to push something representative of the 21st century.(more…)

Review: With genuine cuts of pure music, Jeff Mills presents his new album of 15 tracks ‘The Clairvoyant’ that features nothing but only avant-garde electronic music combined with Jazz, Techno, Experimental sounds, Metaphysics and Spiritualism, all this elements make this LP a sound journey from another galaxy, which must be heard from beginning to end. I must say that with this album, Jeff Mills gives us a class on how to produce music, in an extraordinary way. Amazing.
Good news, specially when we are talking about someone who has given so much for the wide world electronic music scene, and that could easily be a god for us, the techno lovers. He is a creator of the prime matter that we call sound. Of course it has to be Jeff Mills.
Jeff Mills, along with Robert Hood, Carl Craig, and Joey Beltram, is one of the biggest American names in techno. Championed for his music’s relentless pursuit of hardness and his stripped-down, almost industrial DJ sets, Mills is the latest in a long line of Detroit-bred talent to take on an international reputation. A founding member of noted Motor City institution Underground Resistance, Mills helped build the artist roster and label ideology (as well as much of its back catalog) with partners “Mad” Mike Banks and Robert “Noise” Hood before moving to New York in 1992 to pursue more vigorously his solo and DJ career (with a resident spot at the legendary Limelight and a recording contract with the noted German label Tresor). (Although rumors of bad blood between the early UR crew have been denied by all involved, Mills’ decision to split was apparently total, with Banks all but repudiating his involvement with Mills and Mills distancing himself from the continuing political militancy of Banks and the UR organization.)

Championed for his music’s relentless pursuit of hardness and his intense, almost industrial DJ sets (often utilizing three or four turntables or CD decks and a drum machine), Mills is one of the most significant figures in a long line of Detroit-bred talent to earn an international reputation.(more…)
