david mayer’s career and background is marked by a desire to keep moving and experiencing new perspectives. having finally settled in berlin, the german dj and producer has built up an enviously diverse back catalogue on labels such as connected frontline, objektivity, gruuv, audiomatique and keinemusik. with his first release on acid pauli and nico stojan’s ouie label, mayer brings his trademark groove to the fore once more. ‘the call’ is a mid tempo chugger built around a kick, clap and 808 blip, before a more organic groove develops. the slowed down chants and wigged out synth line take the vibe into afro cosmic territory, without losing the original energy. ‘sooner’ is a little more urgent - a crisp, forward leaning rhythm and a deep, subby bass lead the way, before another frazzled synthesiser takes us on a melodic walkabout. ‘black queen’ is another example of mayer’s slick drum programming, keeping things zesty on the dance floor but with acres of space to lose yourself in.
fresh from classic releases on connected with ‘lust’ remix and ‘drained’ ep from david mayer and the sublime l.d.o.e. (aaaron &deckert) remix from floyd lavine, this time they team up for their own release, and its special!
david mayer needs little introduction. affiliated with the flourishing keinemusik label his output as a producer and a dj over the last 9 years has been massive, forging his name as an expert in percussive precision funked up and pounding 4/4 driven deep techno and house. his recent remix of connected release ‘lust’ (tigerskin and k.e.e.n.e feat elli) was testament to his classic treatment resulting in a huge track that featured heavily on dancefloors worldwide.
watergate affairs is a brand new offering featuring residents, regulars and affiliated artists that have developed close ties to the club through the years. over the course of four tracks, jimi jules, lee jones, la fleur and david mayer & sebastian voigt perfectly display the sound of watergate. diving right in is jimi jules and he hasnt let lost a step, picking up where he left off with his stellar bogota ep earlier this year by churning out a burner. 6% is rooted in a heaving low end groove while hypnotic tones spiral around a modulating lead that never lands in the same place, ensuring a twisted dance floor venture.
long time overdue: a new david mayer ep that s added to the keinemusik release roster. but the time mayer invested into his current body of work seems more than worthwhile. there’s no other way around it than declaring: with this “jaded ep”, david mayer is back with a bang!
with david mayers share of keinemusiks current workparty edition still providing solid fuel for heated clubfloors, he already shovelstwo fresh loads into the furnace. km021 has just surfaced in a moment when electrified techno-music seems to drown in an ocean of preset-dullness. well, mayer has come to provide a rescue tool with his sunhole on side a. youll recognize this somewhat trademark-becoming percussive fetish of mayer as this tracks modus operandi. yet, it has rarely been as detailed and surgically implemented as in this banger. whats that – a second hand ticking? and over there – is it a woodpecker in the field? sunhole supplies all the answers in a thumping, yet no friskiness avoiding manner. youll get a stoically rolling beat, asphalting the floor, to build a cannonproof foundation for thisarrangements main attraction – a filtered and delay-heavy synth-affair.flip around and find a competitive jamboree of subtle background-brainwaves other would straightaway use as lead-ideas for their tracks. well, this matchingly titled lead comes in with a hard hitting kick and gets into the groove via filter-rides to peak into clanking noisy industrial-thunder that immediately will electrify every steel-toe in hearing range. generally - only roughness in this cut, crispy bounce and ghostly whispers all over. most definitely for the win, this double broadside.
nach längerer pause mal wieder ein flottes duett der kompakt rave-doppelspitze : michael mayer/reinhard voigt. das da die alarmläuten glocken versteht sich von selbst. umgedreht gibt es ein neues gesicht aus lausanne der den techhouse packt, schüttelt & verdreht wieder auf uns loslässt
