It's been eight years since MICHAEL MAYER released his debut album "Touch", but one certainly couldn't consider him lazy, what with a tightly packed schedule of DJ gigs and umpteen remixes. All the more reason that Kompakt is pleased to announce the sophomore album MANTASY, a long-awaited, indispensable update of Michael Mayer's production sound and an essential release for the label in 2012. One tends to think that it's relatively easy: you make some sounds, you launch a label, you release some records... ultimately, electronic music is known for its short chain of command. Accordingly, "Touch" was created in just a few weeks, "and frankly, you can hear that", says Michael Mayer: "MANTASY is my second solo album, but for me it's really the first one". Indeed, the masterful sequencing and high production value bear witness to an artist in full control of his medium.
