Jeff Mills who has long been one of the fore runners and life blood of Detroit's ever thriving techno scene alongside the likes of Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson explores a range of innovative sounds and experimental sonics on this breathtaking album. Mills, who's always been revered for his inventive use of ornate and superbly orchestrated synths and dark electronics exhibits on Purpose Maker the true and consummate musical genius that lurks within him.The album is breathtakingingly brilliant from start to finish without a single weak track. Mills takes the listener on a fantastic techno voyage, with the classics, The Dancer, Reverting and Casa, which have gone onto achieve legendary status on the dancefloor with underground techno club nights around the globe. Not just consigning his talents to inducing the listener into a dance frezy, Mills also explores the darkest nether regions of the techno genre, with a range of moody and evocatively crafted tracks that feature spaced out sounds and rythms, such as The Outsiders, Paradise and Captivate which almost propel the listener into another planet and dimension. This by far is perhaps the ultimate Mill's album in its range and diversity in exploring techno, and for dispelling the narrow minded myth that techno is mindless, empty and without any form of musical emotion. Listen to Purpose Maker and Jeff Mills will shatter any misgivings you may have about this most wonderful form of music, that is techno.
