!K7 locks in Michael Mayer for next ‘DJ-Kicks’ compilation
Written by worlddancefm on 12th April 2017
Michael Mayer is at the helm of the next instalment of !K7’s ‘DJ-Kicks’ mix series.
The 16-track release includes music from artists such as Moderat, Prins Thomas and Throbbing Gristle, as well as an exclusive new track and three remixes from Mayer.
Last year the Kompakt co-founder put out an album titled ‘&’ which saw him collaborate with the likes of Kölsch, Miss Kittin and Roman Flügel, and he’s drawn parallels with this new outing.
Speaking about the ‘DJ-Kicks’ mix, Mayer said: “On an abstract level, the approach was basically the same for both projects. 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.”
