The ongoing importance of this album is indisputable, essential both to techno and to Tresor. It is a history intertwined.
Waveform Transmission Vol.3 initially came out in 1994 on Tresor Records and is a significant piece within Jeff Mills’ masterwork. The eight titles on the album marked a turning point for Jeff Mills. It indicates a transition from the straightforward sound he had created through the early 1990’s, into the different facets and sound pallet he will develop through the remainder of the decade.
"As barriers fall around the world, the need to understand others, the way they live, think and dream are tasks that's nearly impossible to imagine without theory and explanation. As we approach the next century with hope and prosperity, this need soon becomes a necessity rather than a recreational urge. Theories and subjects of substance are the elementary elements that fuels the minds of our Axis”. – Jeff Mills
