Kompakt presents the third volume in Michael Mayer's highly-respected Immer (trans. "Always") mix compilation series -- a mix CD that bridges a timeless period of emerging music from producers known and new in exemplary style and fusion. The Immer series has made countless best of decade charts normally reserved for studio albums (including Pitchfork and FACT Magazine) plus earning a #1 position of "Best Mix CD Of The 00s" in leading dance music authority Resident Advisor. Immer 3 is a tremendously personal and reflective mix. Opting not for the most current and hip genres or tracks of the moment, Meyer carefully chose timeless musical moments from his record crate that almost hints as a call to obliterate the current state of overhyped minimal bongo house, formulaic techno and dub step that rules the clubs today, as was similarly the case back with the first Immer release. The results reflect the smooth flow and selection that Michael brings to his fans in clubs week after week. Immer 3 opens with the haunting croon of Cortney Tidwell aided by the lush bed of Ewan Pearson's ambient fluidity. Matias Aguayo & Dirk Leyer's now-legendary alias as Closer Musik and their track "Departures" is awoken from its 2002 slumber in timeless form, giving sway to the mesmerizing trippiness of DJ Koze's remix of Ben Watt. Tim Paris and the fundamental classic Smith N Hack track "Falling Stars" sets the pace with a solidified summer house tune to lead in to Raudive's sinister stormer "Slave." Gui Boratto presents his remix for Massive Attack which takes vocalist Hope Sandoval to insatiable levels of sonic bliss and thus makes for a pivotal part of the mix. Popnoname makes his Kompakt Pop debut with the Terranova remix of his hit "Hello Gorgeous." Finally, after 3 years of waiting, the sleeping beauty that is Superpitcher's lost Charlotte Gainsbourg remix makes its official debut appearance. The classic flair of Superpitcher's sexy techno sway conjoins with Madame Gainsbourg in a duet like no other. It's possibly one of the most bizarre DJ transitions in music ever, but amazingly, South Africa's Culoe De Song's emotionally-overwhelming anthem "The Bright Forest" makes total sense when linked with Justus Köhnke aka Kinky Justice's cover of the Round Two house classic "New Day." So there you have it, Immer 3: elegant, personal, enriching and as always, seductive.
