Michael Mayer - &

Michael Mayer will release his third album on October 28th. 

& is the Kompakt founder's first full-length away from his own label, landing on !K7 instead. It comes after 2012's Mantasy, and as the name hints, is an altogether more collaborative affair—Mayer worked with a different artist for every single track on the album, inspired by his experience playing back-to-back DJ sets in 2015. 

"All of those involved are good friends of mine," Mayer says. "These people mean a lot to me—and by that the music we produced together is heart-driven and emotionally powered." 

Mayer works with Kompakt regulars like Kölsch and Gui Boratto, as well as co-founder Wofgang Voigt (alongside his brother, Reinhard Voigt, and Jörg Burger. Miss Kitten, Joe Goddard and Friendly Fires' Ed Macfarlane all provide vocals, while Roman Flügel, Agoria, Bartnt and experimental musician Hauschka appear as well, the latter for a "baroque rave whopper" in the words of Mayer himself.
