Jeff Mills u Zagrebu

United Electronic Sound poziva na spektakl uz legendarnog čarobnjaka elektronske glazbe. U goste dovode Jeff Millsa, DJ-a i producenta koji je obilježio techno eru i elektronsku glazbu od 80-ih nadalje.

Tada je karijeru započeo pod pseudonimom The Wizard, a ubrzo se „čarobnjak“ iz Detroita isprofilirao kao jedna od glavnih figura detroitskog techna, te kao glazbenik koji je sa svojim inovativnim pristupom glazbi uvijek korak ispred svog vremena. U više od 20 godina na sceni nikada se nije držao normi, a jedina konstanta su njegova opčinjenost svemirom iz čega crpi inspiraciju.

Ovog inovativnog glazbenika možete poslušati 30.3. na Zagrebačkom velesajmu u paviljonu 10. Uz njega vas na techno putovanje vode domaći autoritet techno scene Petar Dundov, producent Ivan Komlinović, glazbeni znalac Zero i strastveni zaljubljenik u techno Pete Dux.
