Interview with Jeff Mills (“Artist, Producer, DJ and Entrepreneur”) (on Forbes.com!):
Born in Detroit, Mills first rose to prominence as a local radio DJ in the mid 1980s. He co-founded the techno record label Underground Resistance with Mike Banks and developed an international following for his compositions and his unique style of mixing and blending records — he is deft, meticulous and highly creative. In 1992, Mills founded Axis Records in New York and eventually relocated to Chicago. A prolific artist, he has steadily released music for two decades. He has also rescored the soundtrack to Fritz Lang’s 1927 film Metropolis, which was screened at the Museum of Music in Paris, London’s Royal Albert Hall, and the Vienna International Film Festival.
