Inner Cycle Part 1+2/Function
Another Kompakt sub-label, first release, in deluxe die-cut jacket. "Michael Mayer kicks off with his re-release label. Secret weapons and all time faves re-mastered. 'Immer' doesn't just signify the birth of another label. Named after Mayer's genre-defined mix CD from 2002, Immer (German for 'always or ever') is about unconditional love of timeless music. Totally detached from the Kompakt cosmos, Michael Mayer will re-release his personal treasures and secret weapons from the last 15 years of his DJ life. Regardless if they're objects of virtue from the rough side of deep house or exquisite treasures from the vaults of international minimal techno's almost infinite history. No matter if it's about that top secret nugget of our local club culture or if it's just that great stomper that you always wanted to have...Immer cultivates the idea of techno as an established genre in music history for 2005+. It's colorful richness of timeless hymns and evergreens deserve a comprehensive review on techno's way forward. More simple: Immer's spotlight is on those tracks that always shine, regardless of their age or of how often you've heard them. All tracks will come unremixed, unedited, new mastered and pressed as DJ-friendly double A-side. One treasure on each side."
