Jeff Mills looks to be embarking a foray into the media with his latest venture. The Detroit techno DJ, producer and Axis Records label boss has shared plans to publish a quarterly publication called The Escape Velocity Magazine.
Mills has yet to reveal the specific topic matter of the magazine, sharing only that it will be “focused on all that inspires creativity.” Its name is inspired by the physics concept of escape velocity, meaning the minimum speed necessary for an object to be free from the gravitational pull of a larger one.

More on Mills
A key personality of second-wave Detroit techno, Jeff Mills made a name for himself as one of the founding members of Underground Resistance – the group perhaps most responsible for techno’s legacy as protest music. In the three decades that followed, he went on to contribute to the abstract philosophy around the genre as well as branching out into other styles. In May, for instance, he announced that Axis Records would expand to release classical music, jazz and film scores.
Mills has not announced when the debut issue of The Escape Velocity Magazine will be published. He has said that more information will become available on the Axis Records website.
