Jeff Mills: Tomorrow Comes the Harvest at Southbank Centre
We're teaming up with Southbank Centre to bring Jeff Mills to Royal Festival Hall alongside an afrofunk-electro-jazz ensemble for Tomorrow Comes The Harvest on 10th July.
Tomorrow Comes The Harvest, is a stunning new live presentation from Mills, featuring an ensemble of musicians (Jean-Phi Dary, Divinity Roxx & Rasheeda Ali) weaving intricately textured music through waves of Afrofunk electro jazz with a beating heart of techno. The show will take place at Royal Festival Hall, and is part of Southbank Centre's summer season In The Black Fantastic.
Detroit techno figurehead Jeff Mills' impact in the underground electronic world is profound. Since founding Underground Resistance alongside ‘Mad’ Mike Banks in 1990, Mills has remained a vital figure in the development of electronic music for well over 30 years, always a treasured guest here at the club.
Deeply inhabited by science fiction, its ideas, concepts, stories and aesthetics, for Jeff Mills space is an obsession; his musical output, an all-encompassing sonic science fiction narrative. In conquering space, his music embodies the future, whist also respecting the past, and remaining inherently present.
While he performs as a DJ all over the world, Mills’ artistic career goes much further than creating techno music for dance floors. For over a decade, he has transcended various disciplines with a large number of collaborations in contemporary art.
Tickets available via Southbank Centre.
