Great proto-house by way of early 80s synthed out NDW, a double classic. Big influence on the Chicago house scene (along with "Los Ninos de la Parque"), spun by Ron Hardy at the Music Box and Farley Jackmaster Funk on WBMX, been igniting dancefloors worldwide ever since. There's some pretty great live footage on youtube too:
Two videos from Jeff Mills from 2003. Note the APESHIT TR-909 playing. I have no idea if what Mills is doing is "doing" anything, but as a proper 909 performance, its absolutely transfixing.
When the On Land Festival was announced last year, Keith Fullerton Whitman offered that his set was going to be like "Heldon meets Jeff Mills (without the drum machine)", which kind of offended me. These videos were my retort, however Keith's retort was his set at the festival. For me it was a "Yes, electronic music is still this radically structured, horizon-cresting Utopian Moment!"-style experience. And I love those experiences.
Keith is releasing a couple works for modular synthesizer in the vein of that set. One is currently in the works as a tape on Root Strata.
See a similarly composed clip below, but don't sleep on Keith's very generous Soundcloud page, as well.
