Jeff Mills’ revival of his Millsart alias is in full bloom. Via social media, Mills shared that Vol. 12 of the Every Dog Has Its Day series is slated for a November 19th release, while Vol. 13 is set for December 17th – both by way of Axis Records.

While tracklists and further details are still to come, listeners can expect the ambient, low-tempo, melodic soundscapes on which Mills has centered the Every Dog Has Its Day EPs. The series began back in 2000, though it took a hiatus after Vol. 4 in 2003 until Mills resumed with Vol. 5 in January 2020.

Jeff Mills Over The Years

Mills’ musical trajectory began in the ‘80s. He was dubbed “The Wizard” for his DJ tricks and technical mixing on Detroit radio stations WDRQ and WJLB. Most notably, Mills pushed the envelope on second-wave Detroit techno, and co-founded DJ collective Underground Resistance, a group greatly responsible for techno’s legacy as protest music.

In the three decades since, Mills has arguably contributed a great deal to the abstract philosophy around the techno genre. To this day, he uses his platform to take a stance on social issues. Most recently, after Black Lives Matter protests erupted across the world in the wake of George Floyd‘s death in Minneapolis, his social media presence underwent a noticeable shift.

Axis Records has also recently given a home to Ambrosia by Byron The Aquarius.
