techno and few other intelligent things

Listen and download some Jeff Mills djsets from 1986 to 2010

Jeff Mills started as a radio dj (aka The Wizard) working at Detroit WJBL radio station along with Charles Johnson (aka The Electrifying Mojo).

At the end of the 80ies Jeff Mills and former Parliament bass player Mike Banks, founded the Techno collective Underground Resistance (UR). Later, Robert “Noise” Hood, joined the collective. UR philosophy was strictly anti-mainstream and was inspired by the Black Panther political movement (as Jeff Mills himself confirmed in some interviews).

Mills then moved to New York, Berlin and finally to Chicago, although he never officially leaved UR collective, he started to produce his solo works. In 1992 he founded AXIS record labels with his friend Robert Hood, investigating a more minimal and modern sound. Also, in the next years, sub-labels were created:Purpose Maker, Tomorrow, and 6277.
