Michael Mayer has been not only a music prodigy but a keen industry entrepreneur all his life. Running his own mobile disco event company at the age of 15, and teaching himself how to DJ hip-hop and breakbeat in his youth, Mayer developed a heavier appetite during the techno epidemic that was spreading across Europe in the ’80s. This led Mayer to create the company Kompakt, which is now recognised as one of the biggest labels in the world.
Mayer’s original productions and remix works are truly unique. Delving into genres such as electronic, techno, ambient, and deep house, his work always comes packed to the brim with rich melodic synthesizers, clean cut percussion, and have pinned him alongside some of the best in the world such as Roman Flügel and Kölsch. Proving he’s well versed at the art of mixing, he has become synonymous with playing marathon sets – his longest set to date went for a whopping 12 hours at his Kompakt 12 event in 2011. His highly anticipated Australian return will see Mayer touring nationally over 3 dates.
As a DJ, producer and remixer, Michael Mayer remains one of Germany’s core celebrities in dance music. It’s no secret that he spends his weekends traveling around the globe. It’s likely throughout his career he’s played in front of millions. Then, as a co-owner of Kompakt, he spends his weekdays deciding what will be released on the label and working with the label’s artists and overseeing Kompakt’s distribution wing – the home of over 50 record labels. Amazingly enough, he manages to sneak into the studio on occasion to produce his own music and remix the likes of Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode, Foals and Rufus Wainwright. It’s safe to say he loves being challenged and regardless of the pressure is never putting less than 100% of his heart and soul into everything he does.
In spring 2016 Mayer released his 3rd full-length album »&« on K7, a passionate and personal collection of tracks he produced cooperating with soulmates like Barnt, Prins Thomas, Hauschka, Joe Goddard, Miss Kittin, Kölsch or Roman Flügel.
Shortly after he was set to contribute to the legendary DJ Kicks series, again for K7.
