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.
