Chapter two of Jeff Mills's Director's Cut project out this week

Mill's label delves into the archives to continue its reissue series throughout 2019

Following on from its four track compilation The Director's Cut Chapter 1, Jeff Mills’s Axis label releases Chapter 2 on 19 April. This second edition anthologises five more archive tracks: “As Soon As” (from 2008's Time Mechanic 02 Eternity), “G-Star” (from Alpha Centauri), “If (we)” (from 1999's If/Tango), a Jeff Mills commentary on “If (we)”, and “Cycle 30 – Loop 4” (from 1994’s Cycle 30).

“Looking back in hindsight to the activity and accomplishments of Axis is with much pride – to witness the relationship between the music and listener evolving to this point,” says Mills. “The Director’s Cut reissue project is about manicuring detail. It’s about a rare opportunity to enhance what we’ve done so that the relationship strengthens for the long term.”

The Director's Cut Chapter 2 is released on 19 April.
