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 back. Then, as a co-owner of Kompakt, he spends his weekdays deciding what will be released on the label and working with the label's artists. Amazingly enough, he 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. It's safe to say he loves being challenged and regardless of the pressure is never putting less than 100% of his heart and soul into everything he does.
In spring 2016 Mayer released his 3rd full-length album »&« on K7, a passionate and personal collection of tracks he produced cooperating with soulmates like Barnt, Prins Thomas, Hauschka, Joe Goddard, Miss Kittin, Kölsch or Roman Flügel.
Shortly after he was set to contribute to the legendary DJ Kicks series, again for K7.
Since March 2018 he is hosting his very own radio show on WDR Cosmo.
In April 2020 Michael released his first solo 12inch in ages called »Higher«.
