El Otro Mundo & LEATHAL Returns presents JEFF MILLS, Sat. Dec 12, 2009 @ Project One - SF

     Jeff Mills' career spans at least a decade before he had his first release/s on such notable labels as Tresor, Underground Resistance (name of both the label and the group he was a member of) as well as on his own labels Axis and Purpose Maker. In the early 80's, fresh after the blippy electro synth stylings of Kraftwerk's "Numbers", and the electro-funk/break-dancing rap explosion of notables such as Afrika Bambaata and the Soulsonic Force ("Planet Rock"), one could tune on the radio in Detroit and listen to his fantastic 'master mixes' (as was the term then) performed and broadcast under his alias: The Wizard! (mind you, techno as we know had yet to be invented, and Mr. Mills was and still is one 'hella' proper electro-funk turntablist!)..
     And as is still customary for dj-demo/mixes, the program of Mills' amazing sets began with a clever sample: "We're off to see the Wizard, the wonderful wizard of ozz..." (*beats fade in* & *body 'erk'd and jerked* in the form of a smurf, school-craft hop, etc.)..
     Some 25 years later, somethings never change. Jeff Mills will be in San Francisco, Saturday Dec. 12, 2009 at Project One (251 Rhode Island St.).  Regional ambassadors of (proper) techno, LeathaL (duo Paul Leath and Chris), who were gracious enough to invite me to spin on their web-show EOM Sessions on when I was new to the SF Bay Area, return to DJ and co-host the event with El Otro Mundo.
     Local Heads on the 1's and 2's: Alland Byallo, Derek the Rhythmist, and Gagarin.  Limited Capacity + High Demand = Pre-Sale tickets are selling very fast!  Click to View more event info and to BUY TICKETS Here.
