- The first EP on Mills' new Str Mrkd sub-label contains a track by Julien H. Mulder, who had sent demos to the Detroit artist.
The first release on Jeff Mills' new Str Mrkd sub-label features a track by Julien H. Mulder mistakenly labelled as one of Mills' own.
The EP was meant to feature four new tracks from Mills, but upon release it was discovered that one of the tracks was actually by Julien H. Mulder, who had previously sent demos to the Detroit artist.
"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 said in a Facebook statement.
"Mills often receives demo tracks from artists seeking licenses on Axis Records," continued the statement. "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 since reached an agreement with Mulder, who will be properly credited on all future represses of the EP.
Mulder is a Swedish techno producer with a handful of releases under his belt, including records for Midnight Shift and Mensch.
