My favorite part about this Michael Mayer mix for Resident Advisor is how he reveals that he made it at home while his kids were asleep. The image of Mayer at his turntables, quietly mixing in this situation is soothing, and a perfect counterpoint to the mix, which is very much meant for hanging out at home in the middle of the day. (Great timing!) The mix is also a good counterpoint to Mayer’s new album Mantasy, which basically works as a playful survey of electronic music right now, hopping from sub-genre to sub-genre seamlessly and often beautifully. Mayer appears in FADER #82, on stands right now.
