5.0 out of 5 stars Always 17 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase
Michael Mayer's 'Immer' - German for 'Always', is a mix that has made a big impact on electronic music. RA ranked it as the best mix cd of the first decade of the 2000s, and across the net you will see it listed as one of, if not the, greatest minimal electronic dj mix made. So why is this CD such a landmark? The answer lies in its dedication to what it is - an expression of minimalism. The tracks seem to float across from one another - there's no emphasis on the roll of the dj and his ability - it's purely about the flow of the set. It's very deep in it's textures, it just floats in it's strange, alien minimal way. Yet somehow it's still accessible as a dancefloor 'head-nodder' too. At times, Mayer doesn't mix the records at all - because it's not about him, its about the records on show. If he wants you to hear the very first note of the track, you will. And it's the way in which the set seems entirely dedicated to a love of a certain feel, a mood that this music creates, which is what makes it so good. For me, the set feels as if it moves in three stages, the opening 5 make a coherent, floaty yet solid introduction, and then things change, the set becomes more mechanical and robotic in sound. At track 10, 'Perfect Lovers', the set takes another twist, and the last stage seems to have a haunting drama to it.

The highlights for me are Audision's 'Gamma Limit', Rocket no.3's 'Rocket no.3', M.Rahn's 'Toaster', 'Perfect Lovers' and Selway's 'Flying High'. My main quibble with the set is that the one track that doesnt get Mayer's full attention is the fantastic 'Deeper' by Stargazer. Mayer plays only it's opening phase before mixing into the next records which to my mind are quite significantly inferior to 'Deeper', which is a shame.

Nice stuff I must say. I'm not into that kind of music, but this one gets many spins in my stereo. Cool stuff, if you want just few mix CDs in your collection this is perfect place to start.

I'm becoming day by day a big fan of all the music scene from Germany, expecially I like the way Germans trait house music...you will never find a simple vocal house track, or a deep radio house tracks. Germans put always electronic in it (Kraftwerk are still alive..) in many forms. minimal, abstract, electro, dub...
Micheal Mayer show us this variety of house music, bulding up a mix with different levels: from track 1 to track 4 he offers some minimal deep house sound, then it all become more deeper and from track 6 to 9 the sound become electronic as a machine...fantastic!! Track 10 (remixed by co partner Thomas at Koln's Kompakt Label) is another level of reinterpretation of '80 house music contaminated with electro, then the mix turn with mr. Selway(track 11) in a more techy direction..until the end..
a perfect cd for those who like new electronic deep house music in it's variations!

5.0 out of 5 stars classic is a fitting description 22 May 2007
By Jared Jennings - Published on Amazon.com
though m. mayer records less than he produces and remixes, this album is the classic it has been said to be.

it is lush, sexy, dreamy, minimal, and yet when layering takes place it is done so tastefully that it never seems done for no reaon.

it is really cool, more suited for night listening. headphones better because some of the sounds are soft, so it plays better as i say "against a canopy of silence" like most of this genre does.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Genius 22 July 2007
By M. Stout - Published on Amazon.com
I'm an music-lover who leans towards electronics. I was amazed at how beautifully crystal clear Mayer's CD is. Since I've entered the 9-5 work world I've lost tough with "the scene" and found this one a real gem that woke me up from my slumber. There is good music out there!

Now that's my feelings. You should probably treat this disc as one fine example of minimalist techno/electronic. The kind where you're intrigued with the simple beats and then amazed when the clean rhythms hook you in.
4.0 out of 5 stars Minimal House With Minimal Flaws 12 Nov 2013
By Mark Eremite - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Nearly a decade old at this point, Michael Mayer's first mix with the Kompakt label is still an excellent example of how beautifully done minimal tech-house can be. In a genre known -- at its worst -- for being grating, lazy, or repetitive, Mayer's mix is a seductively dreamy combination of songs, arranged and layered with a velvety finish that is, from beginning to end, nearly perfect.

I have only one beef with the mix, and that's with the transition into "Perfect Lovers," the tenth song on the disc. Up to this point, the set has been pretty much seamless, with a lot of intriguing shapes and contours to the sonic topography. "Deeper" provides one of the clearest high points on the disc, but so does "Psychometry," an otherworldly track with ominous undertones. Unfortunately, this excellent track is faded nearly to silence before "Perfect Lovers" rises to prominence, creating the effect that the mix has completely ended before beginning anew. It's a jarringly spaced transition that deflates the energy of the set.

Even this wouldn't be so bad if "Perfect Lovers" wasn't such an annoying song. It starts out alright, if not a little tepid, but the vocals, when they come on, are atrocious. Making it worse, this is the longest track on the album, clocking in at almost ten minutes. After this, things get back on track with the final three songs, but this wart of a song definitely mars the harmonious pastiche of the rest of the record.

Definitely worth a buy -- especially considering how rare it is to find these days -- but be ready for that one niggling bump in the otherwise creamy luster of the album.
5.0 out of 5 stars A high point for minimal tech-house 12 July 2007
By Zak - Published on Amazon.com
Perhaps one of the more well-known releases from minimalist tech-house German record label Kompakt, this album truly lives up to its status as one of the best tech-house releases of this decade so far.

Don't let the words "minimalist" or "techno" scare you away, for this album is very memorable and danceable. It is also well-suited for chilling out with a pair of great headphones.

Mayer successfully mixed and morphed the original songs to make them his own.

Highly recommended.
