Various Artists Michael Mayer: Immer 2
- Words: Doug Morton
- Label: Kompakt
On Immer 2, Michael Mayer moves thoughtfully through the pulse-strengthening flow of Brooks and Frank West before pivoting on a Crowdpleaser to fully flip the funk switch with Todd Terje's remix of Lindstrøm's "Another Station." His penchant for space and texture translates perfectly as the disc closes with the tribal enchantment of Jesse Somfay's "Lying in a Bed of Myst," finishing off with his own stratospheric Supermayer remix of Geiger's "Good Evening." Immer 2 is bound to be derided for not breaking new ground like 2002's Immer, but its impeccable selection and pop-savvy execution are Mayer through and through.
