Following 2016's full-length LP, &, which saw him extensively collaborate with an impressive host of contemporaries and friends, including Joe Goddard, Prins Thomas and Agoria, Michael Mayer is pleased to contribute to the legendary DJ Kicks series. Spanning eight tracks on double vinyl plus bonus tracks on an accompanying download, the mix finds Mayer in a generous mood, composing a musical journey that spans his ever-expanding record collection, and above all, his defining instinct to share the beauty of music with others.

"Kicks has turned out to be a pretty international affair, especially if you compare it with Immer 1 or Fabric 13, which consisted almost 100% of German productions," highlights Mayer. "At that time, there were such incredible things happening in my direct neighborhood and all over Germany. In the meantime, that spark has traveled a lot since then. The sound I've been pushing is often falsely described as "minimal". Minimal used to be a thing in the pre-Kompakt days, mid 90s. After that I took much more interest in an eclectic way of playing music."

Alongside this consistent, all-embracing attitude to music, ‘emotive' is still perhaps the term best associated with Mayer's leanings as a DJ, and as the man himself once observed, "there is room on the dancefloor for emotions other than euphoria." Certainly, DJ Kicks delivers on this expectation, balancing wistful passages with frequent bursts of high energy aimed squarely at the dancefloor.
