Jeff Mills announces new LP celebrating 50 years since the moon landing

Jeff Mills is one of the biggest names in techno, championed for his music’s unstoppable pursuit of hardness and his stripped-down, semi-industrial DJ sets.

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing, Mills is releasing a new album Moon: The Area of Influence via Axis Records, with tracks that feature samples from the NASA control room.

Jeff Mills is set to release a new album, Moon: The Area of Influence, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing.

Set to be released on the 19th of July, the 2x LP will commemorate the 50th Anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 11 and the first lunar walk, exploring the relationships between the moon, the solar system, and human beings.

 “There are influences of the Moon we can detect, measure and document as scientific facts. If these are perceived as rational explanations, then it should raise questions about the possibility of other unseen mental and metaphysical connections humans have, not just with the Moon but with all other celestial bodies in and outside this Solar System” shares Mills. 

“If we look at the Moon as a component in a vast configuration of integral connected parts, then an intuitive sense might lead us to a wider understanding about how deeply our relationship lies. This album and the imagination that helped to produce it should be considered as a proposition with open- endedness and no foreseeable conclusion. It is a chemistry of facts and feelings based on then, now and forever”.

Following its July 19th release, the techno veteran will perform a 60-minute show of the new album on July 20th, which will be streamed live from the Axis Records website.
