Techno artist, dj. Used to record for Underground Resistance in early nineties. Left Underground Resistance for regular dj night in New York, club Limelight. Currently records for his own record labels, Axis(also Axiswear for Axis records themed clothes), Purpose Maker, and Tomorrow. Before Underground Resistance -period, he was known as The Wizard, from radio programme he used to have. No doubt he got this nickname because of his very aggressive DJ'ing style.

One of his albums, Metropolis, is a soundtrack for a old movie of the same name, directed by Fritz Lang. Metropolis (the movie) has been shown couple of times with Mr Mills' soundtrack, and there has been discussion about possible DVD-release.

Jeff's dj-style is of that cut-up style: he mixes quickly with 2 or 3 record players and a Roland TR-909 drum machine, and he plays mostly techno records, with occasional house-track thrown in. Fast cut-up style is also known as The Chicago Style, where dj only plays small snippets from records - the best part of tracks instead of playing the whole song.

Although his personal life, as much of other things are kept secret from the media, it is known that he has daughter. His marital status is unknown.
