Listen To Jeff Mills' Recently Uncovered Techno Set From 1995
Be more interested in Mill's early DJ alter-ego "The Wizard" where he played early hip-hop, breaks, and 80s bumpf!
The seminal 80s electro tune, Breakin' in Space by KeyMatic, has the first recorded scratch on it, credited to the "wizard" could it be....
There's loads of Wizard mixes online, just search for them. They're enjoyable, but not really that special - his 90s techno output was far more important.
oh haha i didn't realise the b-side of the tape was an unknown, sounded like a mess.
his submerge detroit set from 95 and his live at the end set from 98 are well worth checking.
Claude young is/was a better technical dj imo.
wish he still played hard jackin'' techno - young that is.
I remember seeing him play a set in Zoom Records iirc in Camden in about 97ish? Was packed. Played probably a hundred tunes in an hour or so
Gonna give this one a listen
spot on. I remember seeing CY doing a set at a night that Twitch & Brainstorm put on in 95/96. There was less than 50 people there! it was mid-week but fuck me... anyway CY is a top bloke and a right laugh, we all had a great night regardless (plenty of room for the magic feet).
I was always annoyed by Young's sets in clubs as he messed about too much - 'just play the fucking tune, Claude!'
true, him and Terence Parker can fuck about a bit, I suppose it got to a point for both that the fucking about became their signature, which ends up taking precedent.
Tbf loop techno is made to fuck about with.
Thanks! Will definitely listen to this.
Enjoyed this... love the sound of techno in the morning.
Lovely stuff. Takes me back. I love the fella.
gonna have a listen to this on the way home, should bring back some ( very hazy) memories of when I saw him at Atomic Jam at the Que Club in Birmingham in 97
Jeff Mills The Outer Limits
The record is from 1984 (Radar Records). Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five's 'Adventures On The Wheels Of Steel' was issued in 1981 (Sugarhill) - and there is certainly scratching recorded therein.
Wizard K-Jee was/is Keith Shocklee according to Discogs [Hank Shocklee's brother I presume as they were both involved with Public Enemy
