It’s been eight years since Kompakt label head and DJ Michael Mayer released his debut album, Touch. In the interim, Mayer has been incubating his forthcoming Mantasy LP, fusing together the “gazillions of sounds [he's been] listening to in private, especially [his] love for soundtracks or soundtrack-like music.” “Good Times” is the hands-up closing track featuring Whomadewho’s Jeppe Kjellberg. This single may be the truncated “Smartphone Version,” but none of the deep house sensibility has been lost. Mantasy is out October 22nd on Kompakt.
