To get the thread rolling...
This is really broken beat bobbins, and I haven't even properly heard it because a certain online shop has very much mislead me about when my order would be ready, but it's already February and I want to start participating in these threads again.

Jeff Mills mistakenly releases another producer's track as his own
The first EP on Mills' new Str Mrkd sub-label contains a track by Julien H. Mulder, who had sent demos to the Detroit artist.
The first release on Jeff Mills' new Str Mrkd sub-label features a track by Julien H. Mulder mistakenly labelled as one of Mills' own.
The EP was meant to feature four new tracks from Mills, but upon release it was discovered that one of the tracks was actually by Julien H. Mulder, who had previously sent demos to the Detroit artist.
"In a rare mistake, it was selected for this release as Mills believed it was a track that he produced from his past recordings," Mills' label Axis Records said in a Facebook statement.
"Mills often receives demo tracks from artists seeking licenses on Axis Records," continued the statement. "As he reviews tracks, he sometimes makes a CD containing samples of tracks of himself and others to test while out on tour. On an unmarked CD and because of the similarity in production style, Mills mistook this track as something he had made a while ago and proceeded to add this to the release."
Axis has since reached an agreement with Mulder, who will be properly credited on all future represses of the EP.
Mulder is a Swedish techno producer with a handful of releases under his belt, including records for Midnight Shift and Mensch.

Not sure how I'd feel if an artist I was into released one of my demos as their own work

I have so many questions about this Mills thing. How can a person not remember making a track and then not ask where the master files have gone?

Maybe it's different if you're making tracks out of hardware jams? Easier to forget something that was made in a day than pieced over weeks, and for tracks to sound similar based on the gear?

yeah I'm thinking that Mills would do some hardware jams, maybe do a quick edit and throw it on a cd along with other stuff for cdj sets or road listening
so you end up with a bunch of cds that have completely unlabeled tracks and maybe a note jotted down with the track number and what the track sounds like
the master file is the cd track, might be tweaked a little before pressing

Considering how many tracks JM has already released that are basically variations on a specific style, I wouldn't surprised if he's made literally countless anonymous tracks (I don't know much about how pressing works but, would you ever press a track straight from a CDR wav or whatever?). That said, I dunno if I'd be more annoyed or flattered in this case.

Yes. Not surprised at delays, but I ordered it when it was "expected Dec 31" 😑 I think they're doing the delayed-plane thing where they'll keep postponing it for just as long as people will wait.

Pekkuliar & Driahn on Kommuna, though I might need to make an edit as the one flew over the cuckoos nest sample in the middle is distracting and jarring! Very good otherwise!

Not heard of Sweely before but seems to have a few records out the last couple of years. I'm not sure about the merits of playing 3 in the middle at home but needs must
