Repress; originally released in 2000 on Tresor. The Man From Tomorrow aka Jeff Mills presents soundtrack music to Fritz Lang's seminal silent film Metropolis, re-introducing the theories and ideologies of the 1926 masterpiece to the cyber-youth of today. As Mills himself contextualized: "It seems fitting that this movie, the movie that shaped the young minds in the '20s, with its timeless message of solidarity and the romanticizing of its Utopian dream world be reiterated and reintegrated at the beginning of our new century. Through the advances made in technology and the acute sense of futurism felt by the youth of today, we hope to capture the minds and expand the imaginations of the ones that will soon forge and form our new world." This concept album is an electronic composition. It is purposely designed to be heard while watching Fritz Lang's masterpiece. Mills' own mastery of the sound of the future excellently and equally matches Lang's master vision of the Utopian Dream: narrative, passionate, and timeless. The future of electronic music is now. Listen to it and understand why Jeff Mills is known as the best techno producer in the world.
