He and fellow Detroit vet Mike Banks are, Mills reveals, planning to tour their collaborative project X-102 in 2016. The pair are still “figuring out how we would do it”, but the prospect of live revisions of 1992’s landmark X-102 album Discovers the Rings of Saturn should have techno fans’ mouths watering. On top of that, he’s working on a sequel to 2004’s CD/DVD The Exhibitionist.
“We still have a little bit more filming and production to do”, Mills explains, “but it’s going to be very interesting. It still falls in the same line as the first Exhibitionist – it’s an observation about the art form of DJing, but it’s from more different perspective. We cover the art form in a very comprehensive way in the second one, so this probably will be the last one, but it really explains a lot about the mindset and the concepts and the procedure of how a DJ does what he does.”
Jeff Mills’ Woman in the Moon score is out now.
