Jeff Mills, Eddie Fowlkes and poet Jessica Care Moore are releasing their debut album together as The Beneficiaries. The new LP will be titled The Crystal City Is Alive and will be released on Mills’ Axis Records imprint this July.
The project was born when Mills reached out to Fowlkes to work together and then he later asked Care to work with them. The project laces Care’s poetry into sounds that represent Detroit’s past, present and future. Her work has been featured in music by artists like Nas, Talib Kweli and others. Get ready for some techno poetry.
