Jeff Mills tops up Millsart ‘Every Dog Has Its Day’ series with 13th album
Techno giant Mills shows his more chilled side on Milsart album number 13
Jeff Mills has released the thirteenth instalment of his experimental ‘Every Dog Has Its Day’ series this week, under his ambient techno moniker Millsart.
Beginning in 1992, Millsart was an alias for solo releases like the legendary Mecca EP. It was also the name of his own publishing company, charting his own releases as well as collaborative projects with Robert Hood under various names like X-103 and H&M.
In 2000, Millsart also became Mills’ chosen alias to release ‘Every Dog Has Its Day’ albums on Axis. Demonstrating his softer, jazzdance influences not so commonly heard on the dancefloor, the series became a hit with hardcore fanatics and collectors. However, after four volumes, the series saw a 17-year hiatus – that is, until a fifth surfaced in 2020, at which point Mills began to shift focus back onto the series with a previously unforeseen vigor.
Now, after releasing seven more instalments this year – and, after Vol. 5, finding comfort with putting out digital versions of all tracks in the series – the 13th instalment has arrived.
Meditating on music’s relationship with the inevitable passage of time, Mills considers the album “uniquely crafted to ease restlessness, soothe impatience… while opening the passages to a better understanding of what you are searching for.”
‘Every Dog Has Its Day Volume 13’ is out now in digital formats.
