Jeff Mills & Tony Allen (live)

AUG 4 / Amsterdamse Bos

Jeff Mills
Detroit’s finest techno wizard is forever growing into a more conceptual artist, unafraid of blurring boundaries and collaborating with live musicians to create new and improvised, sounds. This year Mills will be collaborating with the godfather of Afrobeat, Tony Allen. Mills and Allen first got together late last year at the jazz spot New Morning in Paris. Far from reaching the Detroit legend’s higher tempos, the two slowed things down into an acid-funk that George Clinton won have been proud of. The duo are now brining their acid-electro-funk improvised showcase to this year’s Dekmantel festival, making it a monumental opportunity to catch such greats at the top of their game.
