An indelible force as producer, DJ and tastemaker, Michael Mayer is also one of the main ambassadors of Germany’s electronic music scene. As co-founder of Cologne’s, Kompakt imprint, Mayer is one of the leading architects of a trusted techno empire housing numerous sub-labels, a strong distribution division - which handles dozens of Europe’s best electronic imprints, and a world-renowned record shop. Besides his stellar remixes and legendary sets (a sweltering 2003 Micro_MUTEK set and an equally unhinged 2007 Nocturne come to mind), Mayer the producer, obviously fancies the 4/4 kick drum, but doesn’t just aim for the dance floor jugular. After an eight-year solo production hiatus, his second LP, Mantasy (2012), with its sweeping titular track – a muscular and moody Italo disco number – reminded us that Mayer is still a heavyweight. To celebrate Kompakt’s 20th anniversary, MUTEK is proud to welcome back the perennial poster boy for pop-inflected techno.
