about
Michael Mayer

Veteran producer and Kompakt co-owner
Michael Mayer

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, and throughout his career, he’s played in front of millions. As a co-owner of Kompakt, he spends his weekdays deciding what will be released on the label, working with the label’s artists and overseeing Kompakt’s distribution wing, which is home to over 50 record labels. Amazingly enough, he also 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.

This week Electronic Beats On Air joined in with the 20th birthday celebrations of record store, label, distributor and all round Cologne legend Kompakt Records. To time in with the Kompakt Pop-Up Store which settles into its seven day residency at the Ableton headquarters in Prenzlauer Berg, we roped in the key players to reflect on the entity’s legacy and look to the future. Wolfgang VoigtSascha Funke, Julienne Dessange (introducing their new project Saschienne), Edition Terranova, Ableton artist manager Olaf Bohn and Electronic Beats’ Editor-in-Chief Max Dax all bundled into the FluxFM studio to record last night’s show.

Fresh from the airwaves, today’s Mix of the Day features both parts of the program: the first hour’s discussion (in German) and the accompanying mix from Kompakt’s own Michael Mayer who has hooked up with a live recording of his set at 10 Days Off in Ghent. It’s the whole unedited mix which they couldn’t play on the radio, so make sure you’ve got a spare three hours. There’s no tracklist but feel free to join the dots.
