Michael-Mayer_DJ Kicks

DJ/producer/Kompakt Records co-founder Michael Meyer has announced the upcoming release of his DJ-Kicks compilation on May 19. The 16-track set features an assemblage of tracks and mixes from CSS, Alter Ego, Kasper Bjørke, Death in Vegas and Jon Hopkins.

Mayer’s DJ-Kicks follows a momentous 2016 where he upped his creative ante with &, an album of collaborations featuring Gui Boratto, Joe Goddard of Hot Chip/The 2 Bears, Friendly Fires’ Ed Macfarlane, Miss Kittin, Roman Flügel, Agoria and Prins Thomas.

Obligatory press release gush from Mayer: “Kicks has turned out to be a pretty international affair, especially if you compare it with Immer 1 or Fabric 13, which consisted almost 100% of German productions”, highlights Mayer. “At that time, there were such incredible things happening in my direct neighborhood and all over Germany. In the meantime, that spark has traveled a lot since then. The sound I’ve been pushing is often falsely described as “minimal”. Minimal used to be a thing in the pre-Kompakt days, mid 90s.After that I took much more interest in an eclectic way of playing music.”
