Jeff Mills

Founding father of modern techno

Famed initially for his DJ pseudonym The Wizard on Detroit’s WLBF station, Mills is credited as one of the founding fathers of the modern day techno sound through his partnership with ‘Mad’ Mike Banks in creating the legendary Underground Resistance label. This label exuded individuality and emotion and galvanized a generation into feeling the power of electronic music. He went on to start his own Axis imprint, generating incredible worldwide success and spawning offshoots like the dancefloor friendly Purpose Maker label. And all the while he has DJ’d over the world, topping the bill at every electronic event imaginable, showcasing a simply unmistakable thunderous sound and an instinctive quick-fire DJ style.
