If you are more interested in Jeff Mills' "detroit techno" productions, let me express my vision of the thing.
His career can be seen in this way:
- In its beginnings, it released many pieces typical of the detroit techno as the emblematic "the bells".
- as his career progressed, he produced more and more atmospheric pieces. (Metropolis seems to be a turning point)
If you are looking for pure techno pieces, look at vinyl produced until 2001. (or the compilations given at the end)
After this period, you will have to search among hundreds of others. And the majority of those produced are rather minimal. Very few are as "hard" as they were at the beginning.
4 compilations are a good base to summarize this style of techno that made its success in EU rave:
- The other day
- Purpose maker compilations
- The art of connecting
- Lifelike

just found the ticket stub cleaning up, saw him play in montreal on new years eve in 1998, when he played prince's 1999 at midnight. not a huge fan, id rather listen to some rhythmic house like smack productions or some 70s disco grooves... his style of techno seems to be revered by people who lack a real education on dance music, but wish to be seen as the opposite.

(After gig in Warsaw) JEFF MILLS was merciless and indestructible. Ruthless and unassuming entrance to the 5 hour epic of gamma radiation made ​​an impression on everyone. It was a historical event . His albums have become much sense , most of them are brilliant no to say genius. I realized that he is someone on a vision level of James Stinson exploring space instead of the ocean depths. He is not just another techno DJ, his style is unreachable, combining samurai focus with African samba. Inspiring .JEFF MILLS is a precursor to a new kind of aesthetics, based on the ESP (extrasensory perception), according to McLuhan associated with retribalisation , humanity back to its original state. It is also the hidden message of James Joyce novel Finnegan's Wake, and one of Jeff's albums is called Sleeper Wakes.
This clubnight was an epic visit into the twilight zone . You have just crossed over into ... THE TWILIGHT ZONE. Mills = living legend.
