Michael Mayer

He came to play at Keith Flack in Fukuoka on Thursday. He started playing at 2:30 and I had to be at work at 8:00. I didn't sleep much, but it was worth it. I got a nice chat in with the head of Kompakt records and danced in front, next to the floor to cieling speaker, to the dark stuff he spun.

He is super nice. We talked for a while about random stuff...spacious dance floors and nice crowds in Japan ('there's no sex on the dancefloor'), playing on the beach in Mexico for New Years eve, incredibly quiet alleys in Tokyo, his favorite place to play (Nitsa in Barcelona), Berlin vs. Cologne, new releases from SuperMayer and Riccardo Voucher, his last trip to Tokyo–he coincidentally had a seat next to Westbam and during 10 hour flight they broke down the history of techno music.

Also on the bill for Mule Musiq's night:
Koss aka Kuniyuki Takahashi
Toshiya Kawasaki
