Jeff Mills on collaborating with Tony Allen “Incredible. It’s really unusual how he manipulates rhythm. How he speaks, basically — everything that he does is part of a conversation. Once I understood that, then I knew an angle how I could meet him halfway with that. And it is percussion, but he has a very deep, very in-depth understanding of how it’s used in order to bring out a certain emotion,” adding that he has “never seen anyone treat the drum quite this way. Playing with him, and having conversations with him about how he invented Afrobeat, it was quite amazing.”
