Off Foundry // Jeff Mills 3 Hour Set & Special Guests
Off Foundry // Jeff Mills & Special Guests
Foundry returns in 2015 with a new specially curated series of nights outside the confines of our festival, featuring groundbreaking artists throughout the year.
For our inaugural edition, we're pleased to bring one of the most revered names in electronic music Jeff Mills for a 3 hour extended set in support of his new film, Man From Tomorrow.
Jeff Mills Axis Records, Detroit
There are techno DJs, and then theres Jeff Mills. Schooled in the eclectic radio scene of early 80s Detroit, Mills developed a rapid-fire mixing style that became the blueprint for virtually all the citys techno DJs, though few have managed to achieve his mythical status and universal respect.
A co-founder of the equally revered Underground Resistance collective, Mills took the plaintive sci-fi moods of his techno forebears May, Saunderson and Atkins into fierce and uncharted realms, stripping tracks back to their bare bones and unleashing them into the mix one after the other with nuclear intensity and unremitting funk.
An avowed futurist, Mills own recording projects not only pioneered but pretty much set the high watermark for many of the scenes most prominent movements, from industrial to hardcore, tribal and minimal techno, while recent years have seen him investigate slower, more hypnotic moods. In full force, pure techno is rarely finer than in Mills furiously flickering hands.
