Vinyl vs CD? Jeff Mills releases both formats on one disc

Vinyl vs CD? Jeff Mills releases both formats on one disc

Techno pioneer Jeff Mills released The Occurence earlier this year.  Interestingly, the Japanese import was released as a hybrid disc combining both analogue and digital by including a vinyl pressing one side and a CD mix on the other.

Interviewed by Juno Plus, Mills explained:

“There seems to be a divide between the people who really want to keep vinyl and people that want to move on to other formats, and I thought this gesture would show you don’t have to choose between one and the other. You can have both.”

This follows our recent post showing Jack Whites’ introduction of the triple decker record and we can only hope that more artists and labels follow suit.

    What is the size of the cd and the vinyl ?

  • David Jenkins says:

    I would assume the size of a regular CD, or, a little smaller than a 45, but I also assume it plays at 33/3, and not 45. Who knows, but I am confident on the size, it has to be the regular CD size to fit Cd players.

    Pretty cool marketing gimmick! I’ll give them that!

  • Jake Purches says:

    Just a silly gimmick.

    are we thinking of a turntable with 16rpm again or what.. Interesting thought for a single release , how would you fit an entire album.
