Ten years have passed since the release of Jeff Mills’ successful Exhibitionist DVD. The Wizard has now revealed the framework for Exhibitionist 2, a comprehensive DVD, CD, and LP package, with a release planned for September 2015 through Axis Records. As always, Jeff Mills pushes the boundaries when it comes to art and electronic music; look no further than his showcase at Le Lourve or the creation of his Battle LA inspired drum machine. Exhibitionist 2 will further expand on his already impressive works, providing unique insight into the process, creation, and aspects of a live performance within electronic music.
The DVD set will feature live footage of Jeff Mills performing and showcasing his wizardry in cities such as Detroit, Chicago, and Leiden (Holland), with an exclusive option to hear multiple channels of the recording such as Jeff Mills’ headphone channel. For those who ask the question “what does a DJ do up there?”, Exhibitionist 2 will have all the answers.
“Nowadays and in this era, the examples of “what DJs do” are somewhat commonplace and plentiful to see with widely popular Internet programs like Boiler Room, Blaster Jaxx and various other DJ programs, but none have yet to break an innovative barrier and achieve the acclaimed accomplishments of The Exhibitionist DVD. Many years later, I realized that there was still more territory to discovered and more things about the art form that needed to be exposed” – Jeff Mills
In addition to the DVD box set the release will be accompanied by a CD of his work from Mix 2 in Chicago, as well as three 12” EP’s due for release in June, September, and November. Part 1 of the 12” Exhibitionist 2 EP will feature four pieces of original productions from Jeff Mills, with more information on the way from Axis Records in regards to Parts 2 and 3.
Exhibitionist 2 (Part 1) will be available June 29th through Axis Records

A1. Signals To Atomic One
“The Exhibitionist 2 is designed to go even deeper into the art form to display, not only how a DJ uses the latest technology, but how he thinks in real time to create and work spontaneously like a musician playing an acoustic instrument or a soloist thinking of rhythms on-the-spot. This is a rare opportunity to see how the technology of today is allowing DJs to be more free and thus, more creative“ – Jeff Mills
Always on the brink of innovation, Jeff Mills is one of the few artists who completely dedicates himself to the art while expanding the boundaries of techno as we know it. With the highly anticipated release of Exhibitionist 2 he will have another opportunity to provide valuable insight and credibility to the techno scene, while giving fans a special piece to add to their collection.
