Jeff Mills, aka The Wizard, is one of the biggest names in techno, renowned for his intense, industrial sets which are mixed on three turntables, and for teaming up with everyone you wouldn’t expect a techno artist to team up with, from the BBC Symphony Orchestra to NASA.
A founding member of Underground Resistance, he began his solo career with a recording contract from Berlin’s famed Tresor, and has since produced two volumes of ‘Waveform Transmission’ for the label.
The AXIS Records founder is also well known in the film world, having made a new soundtrack for Fritz Lang’s iconic 1927 silent film Metropolis, as well as scoring Japanese film And Then There Was Light. Mills has also produced his own films, including Life to Death and Back, which was shot in Le Louvre museum, and screened as part of his four-month residency there.
It’s safe to say that Jeff Mills is a techno legend, having been knighted by the French Ministry of Culture for his contribution to French culture.
