A luminary of Detroit's rich electronic music scene, Jeff Mills brings his spiky, industrial techno to London for what should be a frantic and intoxicating Meltdown performance. A founding member of Detroit collective underground resistance, Mills quickly became techno royalty thanks to his unrelenting approach and desire to push the boundaries of what could be achieved through electronic music.
Joining Mills is A Guy Called Gerald, one of the UK's own electronic behemoths. Known as one of the founding members of highly influential '90s house act 808 State, Gerald went on to help spread acid house across the UK through his own psychedelic productions, which owe as much to the hedonisitc Manchester electronic scene of the late '80s/early '90s as they do to Chicago house and Detroit techno.
