Jeff Mills requires no introduction, as we are used to hearing about him in the numerous articles around the world. He's a planetary superstars of techno, an unwearied hero of mega-raves and an ace of the three-deck mix. Let's not forget that he's also produced influential singles like ‘Sonic Destroyer', ‘The Bells' and the heroic ‘Purpose Maker' series. However, the man is more complex than he first appears, embodying an artistic ambition, which reaches far beyond simple techno music and is leagues ahead of his fellow DJs. Even if Jeff Mills has never stopped releasing minimal, obsessive and percussive records for the dance floor, his music is more varied than it first seems. During special parties his mixes combine house, funk and soul, appealing to those who had previously been resistant to his brand of techno. On CD or limited edition singles, Jeff's music is more atmospheric and melodious. Rhythms are muted, with swing bass, liquid sounds, ample synths and dreamlike keyboards revealing another side of his character, whose inspiration comes from beyond the clubs. His music is a strange and cosmic jazz, with the voluntarily symphonic and mysterious attributes of film music. Catch Jeff Mills at Tripod on September 25th. Tickets priced €20.
