Not So Magic! "The Wizard" Jeff Mills releases another producer's track as his own

The first release on Axis Records sub-label Str Mrkd features a track by Julien H Mulder, mistakenly labelled as one of Mills' own.

Originally meant to feature four new tracks from Mills, it was discovered upon release that one of the tracks on the EP, ‘Patterns In Nature’, was actually by Julien H. Mulder, a Swedish Techno Producer. Mulder had previously sent demos to the Detroit artist, and due to “similarities in the production style”, Mills then released ‘Patterns In Nature’ as his own after discovering it on an unmarked CD. 

"In a rare mistake, it was selected for this release as Mills believed it was a track that he produced from his past recordings," Mills' label Axis Records stated in a Facebook statement

"Mills often receives demo tracks from artists seeking licenses on Axis Records," the statement went on to say. "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." 
'‘Patterns In Nature’ will be rightfully credited and all that is due will be made to the artist Julien H. Mulder.” Axis Records also added that: “Label credit will be changed for the next repress of Str Mrkd 001.”

So, a bit of a blunder, but I doubt that this will do Mulder's career any harm at all! And props to Jeff Mills for righting the wrong in good time.

    It is actually very good and I would think it was Mills if I hadnt read this artical.

    Mills’s work has obviously been studied hard for this tune to sound the way it does. Probulary just a mistake or maybe not. Very good tune anyway.
