mille from stockholm, sweden, has been producing house music when he was 20, then took a break from music, ditching it for 3d graphics design studies and just last fall, he decided to get back into production again. it seems like he finally found his very own style this time around, drawing a lot of inspiration from commodore 64 and sega mega drive games as well as the french electro scene, although i think the only artist over there who can really be compared to him would be danger.
with these influences it's no surprise that mille combines chiptune leads and commodore 64 sid soundchip-style arpeggios with elements of today's dance music. i can't really tell how his music would work in a club but both tracks we've got for you today, 'ghost dancer' and 'crysteena' are definitely some of the best musical work i have heard in ages and remind me how i spent hours in front of the commodore 64 back in the days, just listening to game music soundtracks because i liked the chiptune sounds so much (what a weirdo, eh).
so if you have ever heard of legendary game music composer jeroen tel or enjoy the more playful moments of russ chimes, mille is more than right for you!

big ups to our friends at dödselectro for introducing us to mille, from now on we'll watch his every move and so should you, show him some myspace love.
