On Friday May 24, Harmonic Productions will be kicking off Memorial Day weekend in high gear with the fifteenth episode of HEAR with long time Harmonic Hero MICHAEL MAYER of the legacy known as Kompakt performing a lengthy 4+ hour set deep into the morning. On this evening of savvy musical selection, supporting duties go to the MUSIC SAVAGES collective comprised of djs Cameron Angeli, Matthew Derham, and Jake Patrick. Given the usual thumping sound system and an interactive environment provided by Opulent Owl, this will likely be another story for your grandchildren from the HEAR saga.
As a DJ, producer and remixer after 20 years, Michael Mayer still remains one of Germany’s major players in dance music. It’s no secret that he spends his weekends traveling around the globe to entertain his residencies and headline festival after festival, given the 132 remix credits he has on discogs and that two of his mixes were heralded as the most essential of the decade (Immer) and “the best ever” around the Harmonic house(Fabric 13) . 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 and overseeing Kompakt’s distribution wing – the home of over 50 record labels. Amazingly enough, he manages to sneak into the studio and continue to produce his own music and remix the likes of Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode, Foals, Rufus Wainwright, Sven Vath, Miss Kitten, Paul Kalkbrenner, DJ Koze’s Adolph Noise moniker, plus sooo many others! 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 this fortunate case, it will be focused on wrecking shop at HEAR for over four hours!!
Protocol for attendance to this night will be standard for the HEAR series: Tickets will be available at the RA site, and RSVP is required for those without tickets at the door. Come share the HEAR experience with Harmonic as they host one of their most esteemed bookings to date with some savage selectors to fill in the blanks.
