The song in question is Patterns in Nature from Jeff Mills’ EP Str Mrkd, initially released on 17 January.
The first release from Jeff Mills’ new sub-label, Str Mrkd, wrongly attributes a song to Jeff Mills. Issued alongside Albali, Helix Nebula and Aquarius as the EP Str Mrkd, the track Patterns in Nature was actually created by Swedish techno producer Julien H Mulder.
Yesterday (17 February), a statement posted to Facebook from Mills’ label, Axis Records, explained: “In a rare mistake, it was selected for this release as Mills believed it was a track that he produced from his past recordings.”
Elaborating on the wrongly credited track, the statement continued: “Mills often receives demo tracks from artists seeking licenses on Axis Records. As he reviews tracks, he sometimes makes a CD containing samples of tracks of himself and others to test while out on tour. On an unmarked CD and because of the similarity in production style, Mills mistook this track as something he had made a while ago and proceeded to add this to the release.”
Axis has now reached an agreement with Mulder to ensure that he will be rightfully credited on future re-issues of the EP.
