Been inexplicably biding your time, waiting for a turntable designed in the image of Saturn? Well, the wait is finally over.
Featuring a white spherical speaker in its centre, with an upper hemisphere that can be removed to place a record on its base, designer Elham Mirzapour's turntable stylishly portrays the 42.7 billion km² gas giant's rings and moons.
Also including a cartridge that resembles Saturn's orbiting moon, Titan, the record player is designed in a way that the movement of the stylus mirrors Titan's rotation around the planet.
Jeff Mills has announced the next in his 'The Director's Cut' series.
'Sight, Sound and Space' will be released in 3 x CD format on Jeff Mills' label Axis Records on October 4.
In an interview with Lee Shields which also serves as the press release, Mills explains how the three CDs categorize his latest project into seeing, hearing and your surroundings. The release follows a long-standing interest in space and science fiction, which Mills believes is inpired by an intrigue to find out where humanity is headed.
On 'Sight, Sound and Space', Mills says:
An astronaut has performed the first DJ set in space, breaking through the limits of earthly clubbing to set a new record (and then some).
Luca Parmitano is based on the International Space Station and was inspired to attempt this feat due to his belief that music is one of two global languages, alongside maths. This groundbreaking moment combines both, with the cosmic professional playing tracks on a tablet while suspended in zero-gravity.
Jeff Mills will commemorate the 1969 Moon landing on new album, 'Moon - The Area Of Influence'.
Incoming via Axis Records, 'Moon - The Area Of Influence' is a 13-track album of ethereal, sci-fi techno, even featuring samples from a NASA control room, exploring the relationship between the Moon and the Earth.
Jeff Mills will continue his pursuit of fusing the worlds of techno and astronomy this February with the inaugural edition of The Edgar Mitchell Affair.
Taking place on 9th February in Antwerp, Belgium’s Ampere club, Mills will DJ from 11pm to 5am with specially curated visuals designed to coincide with the parties theme of “paranormal and ufology”.
