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

paolo, Tuesday, 19 February 2019 09:49 (six months ago) link

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?

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 19 February 2019 11:38 (six months ago) link

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?

change display name (Jordan), Tuesday, 19 February 2019 16:29 (six months ago) link

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

mh, Tuesday, 19 February 2019 16:56 (six months ago) link

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.

ed.b, Wednesday, 20 February 2019 02:59 (six months ago) link

was it a preorder

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.

Thinking about getting this while I 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

The decisions that were made in creating that artwork seem so ill-advised and confusing that I can't understand what the possible goal was

boxedjoy, Friday, 26 April 2019 17:11 (three months ago) link

yeah it's incredibly gross

the late great, Friday, 26 April 2019 17:12 (three months ago) link

i have four vakula records that i like *a lot* ("metaphors", "attack the soundsystem", "slavic mythology", "pictures of you") but now i want to get rid of them

the late great, Friday, 26 April 2019 17:16 (three months ago) link

When these things are made and produced and available I always wonder how nobody at any point was able to say "hmm actually this is a terrible idea"

boxedjoy, Friday, 26 April 2019 17:36 (three months ago) link

it's fueled by resentment.

at least that's fewer records i have to worry about not having time to listen to.

Two Italian records played here at the Nou Camp by the magic trio, Mane, Salah and Firmino in b2b, should both be out later in summer.

that Sharif Laffrey remix of "Scream" was last year but that doesn't mean that it isn't *SLAMMING*. listened to that all through the christmas holidays, helped me out a bit lol

yea! Sharif Laffrey's been having a good run of productions recently imo

davey, Saturday, 4 May 2019 15:34 (three months ago) link

really been digging this on these late spring/early summer days. Perlon can still get it right!!

blue light or electric light (the table is the table), Saturday, 4 May 2019 23:19 (three months ago) link

the new one is 40 mins of full on machine noise.
no excess, no big plan, just short sharp hits.
its a lot of fun.
and that includes the death metal inspired coverart.

This one went off at All Day I Dream Of this past weekend. Might be my favorite track of the year...

Papa Triste (Thee Macallan 18 Year), Monday, 24 June 2019 23:20 (one month ago) link

Yeah that one builds up to a pretty great riff.

Love g76, saer. He's got a very unique style. You'll hear it's him almost immediately but it's always fresh. His DJ Seinfeld edit (How you make me feel) is good.

Great that you got to do the video for him! :) Dunk that biccie imo.

Low tempo fun on Dekmantel. This is the housiest/technoiest track on the EP (which is excellent)

paolo, Monday, 8 July 2019 18:05 (one month ago) link

Loving the DJ Python EP. Thanks for the heads up!

breastcrawl, Tuesday, 9 July 2019 19:33 (one month ago) link

yeah, this is great and just the thing to finally dislodge the Peggy Guo DJ Kicks methinks

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 9 July 2019 19:56 (one month ago) link

Been meaning to listen to that one, guess I really should now.

saer, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 11:07 (one month ago) link

This is closer to garage or early grime than house or techno tbh tbf but it's on Ilian Tape so probably fits in this thread

paolo, Thursday, 11 July 2019 17:01 (one month ago) link

Most of the Ilian Tape tracks I've heard before have been fairly boring. That goes for SUED as well.

paolo, Thursday, 11 July 2019 17:04 (one month ago) link

along similar lines I love this (but this is house paced)

Funky Isolations (jed_), Thursday, 11 July 2019 21:01 (one month ago) link

love the python too paolo!

Funky Isolations (jed_), Thursday, 11 July 2019 21:02 (one month ago) link

that was the wrong link (although I LOVE that too!)

The house paced/dubstep sounding thing was meant to be:

Funky Isolations (jed_), Thursday, 11 July 2019 21:04 (one month ago) link

the Dusky is driving breakbeat house? I'm shit at genres and descriptions.

Funky Isolations (jed_), Thursday, 11 July 2019 21:08 (one month ago) link

. That goes for SUED as well.

strange because the dj python reminds me of SUED, both in that it's sometimes not clear whether this is a 33 or a 45 (though I think only intentional in the case of the SUED releases) and also just in that a lot of SUED releases sound like this dj python, particularly sw.'s "reminder" series

the late great, Friday, 12 July 2019 01:31 (one month ago) link

I think there are definite connections between what dj python is doing and what sw. is up to, regardless of the difference in tempo

the late great, Friday, 12 July 2019 01:33 (one month ago) link


the late great, Friday, 12 July 2019 01:33 (one month ago) link

new Nick Holder track on a split on. Kai Alce's label, textbook open air bonhomie, its what its all about mates

Those SW tracks above are nice, maybe I was too quick to write off SUED

paolo, Friday, 12 July 2019 08:45 (one month ago) link

I dunno, I’d say Ilian Tape and SUED have been among the most interesting labels of the last 5 years.

ed.b, Friday, 12 July 2019 10:33 (one month ago) link

also fire:

Not that there’s anything house-y or techno-y about it, but “Espero” off that DJ Python EP is gorgeous.

+1 on Ilian Tapes being one of the more interesting labels.

Pretty cool, but man - they use all the same sounds!

DJI, Friday, 26 July 2019 21:40 (four weeks ago) link

Well, 808 State announced they're reforming two days ago, so I'd say it's started.

Just the right measure of oddball and microhouse groove - in other words: ❤️❤️❤️ (I'm just sorry it took the death of Digby's brother/production partner to hear about them)
