Michael Mayer Mixes DJ-Kicks: Out May 2017

Michael Mayer is a multi-faceted talent. Kompakt, the label he co-runs, is an electronic music institution. He’s also a gifted producer, as last year’s album & demonstrated. This Spring, Mayer reminds us that he’s a peerless DJ as he takes the reigns for an ambitious and satisfying DJ-Kicks mix. Spanning sixteen tracks, the mix finds Mayer in a generous mood, composing a musical journey that spans his ever-expanding record collection, and above all, his defining instinct to share the beauty of music with others.

“On an abstract level, the approach was basically the same for both projects”, observes Mayer. “For ‘&’ I put together a group of people that are close to my heart. For Kicks it was a group of records that are like friends to me. All of the tracks I used went through heaven and hell with me. They’ve become true companions. Circling in on and bringing together these friends was the only criterion for the making of this mix. I wanted it to be as personal as possible.”

Michael Mayer’s DJ-Kicks is released 19th May 2017 on CD, 2xLP and digital formats. The mix includes an exclusive Mayer production, “The Horn Conspiracy.” Pre-orders are available now.
