Jeff Mills and Jean-Phi Dary embark on an exciting, ground-breaking musical trip that takes Techno and electronic dance music to a new level. In the past Jeff has spoken of the need to, "take a few steps back and try and assess what has been done, and what might need to be approached to be able to go forward." Paradox: Live at Montreux" is the result.
Jeff argues that the form of Techno we know today formulated itself around the '80's and the early '90's, after the bang of the rave culture, yet audiences today are still content with the conceptual heritage of Studio 54 and Paradise Garage - that minimal form of music and repetitive loop-form of dance music that everyone dances to today. "I really think creatively we have exhausted ideas to a certain point and I think it's healthy to look to other genres and the key elements that make them interesting," he continues. "You look and compare and maybe borrow some ideas, and bring those back to electronic music, to see if it can further our creativity."
