Deeply inhabited by science-fiction, DJ, producer and artist Jeff Mills adopts its ideas, concepts, stories and esthetics from the outset. For him, Space is an obsession and his music almost becomes a musical science-fiction. Conquering space, his music embodies the future while both respecting the past and remaining well into the present. When he founded his own record label Axis in 1992 -a logo consisting of four triangles pointing to an invisible center-, Mills takes the rotating principle of the solar system as aesthetics, concept and model for creativity. From the beginning, his first releases explore futuristic and science fiction topics such as "Mutant theory," "Tomorrow," "Art / UFO", "Time Machine" and "Alpha Centauri". For Jeff Mills, the future is a powerful creative drive which explains the artist's ceaseless activity.
Almost ten years after the successful “The Exhibitionist“, Jeff Mills revealed “Exhibitionist 2“ in September 2015, in which he goes even deeper into the artform to display, not only how he uniquely mixes music, but how he thinks in real time to create and work spontaneously like a musician playing a acoustic instrument or a soloist thinking of rhythms off-the-fly.
This will be followed by “Kobe Session“,a special improvisational performance created by Jeff Mills for the Exhibitionist 2 DVD project. Along with 3 other musicians their objective was to create, shape and perform compositions in front of a live audience setting. Debuting in Tokyo in Sept 2015 a live recordings has been captured in Kobe, Japan and a vinyl is out in May 2016.
