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 (nine 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 (nine 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 (nine 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 (nine 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 (nine 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:

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

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"

it's fueled by resentment.

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

Based on these recommendations I will now listen to the new Lone track and the new Lone Track album. I don’t know these artists and may be doing something wrong, but I’m curious.

I've read (but can't find the quote) someone saying that sfire 7 is the most perfect end of night tune ever, or something like that. It sounds like a wonky 2.5 minute New Order demo to me.

I really want to go to cocktail d'amour one weekend. apparently berghain is much less busy the weekend that CTD'A is on.

One of the subtler tracks from the Lizz album. The best ones not up yet but this is a grower. Album is pretty sprawling so some tracks get lost

yes! keep the good stuff coming. i've been exploring the rest of the CTD'A and it does not disappoint. i'm really digging the vampire boogie lately so it's hitting that sweet spot too. what a fine label.

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Friday, 22 November 2019 16:01 (two weeks ago) link

I have a feeling that would grow on me if I gave it a few more tries but I'm not sure I need more minimal in my life. Although it could well be the crappy EQs on my system that I'm getting that from.

Agreed that Aroy Dee & Ma Spaventi is quite compelling. Didn't we agree to cancel "banger" tho?

The Robbenspierre track shows definite potential.

viborg, Saturday, 23 November 2019 02:27 (two weeks ago) link

Oh yeah as far as the new Midland I'm more partial to Tortuga from the new EP but none of them are missteps. I was thinking about posting his recent outstanding NTS mix but haven't paid attention to charts of top rated DJs lately and don't know if he's too obvious a choice.

binger = a bong hit

I am indeed a loser if that was ever in question, cheesy canopy. And yeah it's true I don't really go to parties any more. The scene here sucks and often when I do go I get the "what's dad doing here?" look.

As for b*nger, I was genuinely under the impression that there was a consensus that it was so trite as to be practically meaningless. Or we could just call every song we like "epic" and it would denote exactly the same value. Whatever, call it what you like as long as someone keeps putting up a little good music here aside from all the dad rock that now dominates ILM.

viborg, Wednesday, 27 November 2019 22:31 (one week ago) link

unfortunately reasons of taste are not a valid basis for cancellation, check the bylaws!
