JEFF MILLS DETAILS NEW VINYL OFFSHOOT LABEL
AXIS AUDIOPHILE SERIES
Axis Records, the label helmed by acclaimed producer Jeff Mills, has announced a new offshoot called Axis Audiophile series, focusing specifically on high quality vinyl releases.
Each record will be pressed on 180-gram virgin vinyl at 32-bit/48kHz and “mastered for high-fidelity sounds.”
The first release from the imprint will be an album by Mills’ side project, Jino Ohno Mitchell Mills, that leans toward the unique style of electronic-jazz fusion. Kenji “Jino” Hino plays bass and vocals while Yumiko Ohno plays the Moog synth. Gerlad Mitchell of Underground Resistance handles the keyboard with Mills taking on the drum machine and percussion.
Mills will also be releasing a solo album called Free Fall Galaxy, which will be the ninth phase of his Sleeper Wakes saga. The label reports it as “[capturing] the triangular pursuit of a prey that falls victim to its attacker.” Look for that one coming in June.
