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 which will be released October 22nd 2012 (KOMPAKT 250 LP, KOMPAKT CD 100 CD), a long -awaited, indispensable update of Michael Mayers production sound and an essential release for the label in 2012.
Good Times is the first single from Mantasy. What you have here is an alternative version of the album track, Cheekily titled Smartphone Version, its a tightened edit of what will appear on the album. Sung by WHOMADEWHOs man of a thousand voices Jeppe Kjellberg. Its an ode to nightlife utopia, to hands thrown in the air and the feeling of belonging, when you know that this is the place, the sound, the crowd you want to be with. Movies without a happy end are dumb, clarifies Mayer, so switch off your smartphones and get on board!
