Jeff Mills live at Odeon of Herodes Atticus
It is an improvised concept created in 2018 in collaboration with Tony Allen, Afro Jazz legend and drummer of Fela Kuti.
It would not be an exaggeration to state that without Jeff Mills, electronic music would likely be a very different scenery today. From the legendary music collective “Underground Resistance” he co-founded back in 80s Detroit, to world critical and commercial recognition, working with symphony orchestras or delivering art and fashion projects, Jeff Mills has led an enviable, idiosyncratic artistic course through the years. Much more than just a producer or a DJ, Mills is a true sound artist with a complete vision and deep knowledge of his field, which he expresses through his own record label Axis, which he founded in 1992, as well as with countless other highly creative projects. In 2000 he wrote the soundtrack for Fritz Lang’s silent masterpiece, “Metropolis”. In 2006 he released “Blue Potential”, a live recording with the 70-piece Montpelier Symphonic Orchestra. In 2008 his piece “Critical Arrangements” was part of the “Le Futurisme à Paris – Une Avant-Garde Explosive” exhibition at Centre Pompidou Paris. His 2013 album “Where Light Ends” was inspired by Japanese astronaut Mamoru Mohri. These are but a few stops in the career of an iconic, ever evolving artist.
12 years after his last performance in Athens, Jeff Mills will be taking over the iconic Ancient Greek Theater Odeon of Herodes Atticus to present his acclaimed jazz afro futurism project. Accompanied by his close partner Jean-Phi Dary on keyboards, he will be also joined by Divinity Roxx on bass as well as flutist Rasheeda Ali. Set on the most iconic of venues this will most certainly be a night to remember.
