Kompakt Records boss and German experimental hero Michael Mayer has been announced as the next name to enter into the long running DJ Kicks mix series.

The series, released by Berlin based label and agency !K7, sees the Cologne native mix its 58th instalment, due for release on 19 May, following on from his '&' compilation, released in 2016. Listen to a stream of that in the Bandcamp player below.

From first view of the tracklisting, the mix contains a leftfield selection of music that covers Mayer's eclectic and often challenging output, including tracks by Dreems, Prins Thomas, Royksopp, dOP, Moderat and more. 

The mix also features the obligatory DJ-Kicks exclusive from its author, with Mayer turning in 'The Horn Consipracy', found only on the forthcoming mix. It will be released on CD and digital formats, as well as a double vinyl album. 

The lauded series has been running since 1995 when first mixed by C.J Bolland.
