- Unpopular opinion... The bells has not aged as well as many other tracks from the time, or maybe i have just listened too it too much and need to put it away for a decade. Still without a doubt one of the greatest classics of all time though
- While I do like The Bells, my go- to track on this EP has to be Alarms (or masterplan), It's a great club tool that i wish more DJ's had played in the 1990s.
- Ive always kept it for Kat Race and Masterplan (here under "Alarms")
The Bells is JM's signature, I'd just feel wrong playing this one to ppl, like an impostor of the actual DJ (:
JM @ Tresor 1997 - that's where it belongs.
- someone wants to swap this classic for some precription/ron trent classic?
- Classic of classics. Just that. But the mastering is a shit. A lot of UR and Mills stuff sounds like a shit... All the represses sounds better for far
- Edited one year agoWhen looking back at "The Bells", I think it's worth adding some context. The Bells was officially released in 1997, however, Mills had been playing the track in his sets since 1995, this is evident on the Liquid Rooms mix (1995) and the Moving Beats Volume 2 mix (1996). I remember Mills playing The Bells at a number of events during that period and on each occasion the crowd would go wild. I can't say for sure if at that time anyone actually knew the track title, I certainly didn't. I think that due to the crowd's reaction to the track it finally got released. A number of his test pressing from that time didn't get released. So, for me the popularity of the track was decided by the crowd long before it was an official release. I also think that if he was really trying to capitalise from the track, wouldn't he have released it as The Bells EP, with a hype sticker "As featured on...". It's also worth pointing out that Mills created the Purpose Maker label to release more dance floor focused tracks instead of Axis which was for his more experimental material.
- who just paid 261 € for this record? classic, yes. but 261,- EURO!?
- OMG "The Bells" is a rockning monster track. Jeff Mills is one of the greatest techno artist ever!
- Edited 2 years agoA product of its time. Mills has been coasting on the success of "the bells" since before this EP even came out. zzzzzzz
