Jeff Mills Releases Final Vinyl Set From His Second Documentary

If you’re Jeff Mills and you shoot a documentary about yourself, you’re going to have a banging soundtrack. Last year, Mills did make a documentary about himself; he also put together its soundtrack, which he released on vinyl in phases over the course of six months. Now the last of those curated cuts will soon be available in stores.

In September 2015, Detroit’s iconic techno pioneer released Exhibitionist 2, a documentary charting the ins-and-outs of Mills’ art. While Exhibitionist 2 was a follow-up to Exhibitionist, an earlier release with similar intentions—putting cameras in front of Mills’ equipment and keeping the viewers focus on Mills’s nimble knobbing—Exhibitionist 2 went a bit further. Over 120 minutes, Mills gives us an insider’s peek into just how he mixes and composes from scratch. Joining him for brief segments are drummer, Skeeto Valdez, and modern dancer, Pierre Locket.

As part of the promotional campaign for Exhibitionist 2, Mills announced the release of three 12″ records created for the documentary. Exhibition 2: Part 1 was released in June; Part 2 in September. Now Axis Records, the label that put out the entire series, have announced the final part of the triptych.

Exhibitionist 2: Part 3 will be released on January 22 with Axis Records. Watch a trailer for the Exhibitionist 2 documentary below.
