Detroit Techno pioneer Jeff Mills announces new LP
Detroit techno pioneer Jeff Mills is to release new LP on the 19th July, entitled Moon - The Area of Influence. The new album celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Moon landing, with each track to illuminate a different aspect of the Moon’s influence on humanity. As with many of his releases, Mills couples space-age beats with samples; this time taking vocals from the NASA control room.
Speaking about the release, Mills stated that “there are influences of the Moon we can detect, measure and document as scientific facts. He expands on this, noting that “if these are perceived as rational explanations, then it should raise questions about the possibility of other unseen mental and metaphysical connections humans have, not just with the Moon but with all other celestial bodies in and outside this Solar System.”
To celebrate the release, Mills will also be performing Moon - The Area of Influence live on the Axis Records website. To watch the trailer for the LP, click here.
