Crossing borders is a familiar experience to David Mayer. Though being born in south Germany, he spent most of his youth living in Norway and (for a change) in Lanzarote, before Berlin happened to become his home in 2004. With key-releases on Connected, Ouïe, Objektivity, Mobilee and Keinemusik alongside remixes on Kompakt, Get Physical, Offering Recordings and Rise Music Berlin he has forged a reputation as a producer and touring DJ.
As he prefers thinking outside the box, Mayer has always been equally interested in listening to and experimenting with diverse forms of music, no matter what musical genre they derive from, although his passion for funked up and heavily pounding 4/4 beats clearly dominates his creative output. Early tracks like “Fortune”, “Word Is Bond”, “Celsius” and “Sunhole” just as the more recent „Drained“ featuring Sooma, „Movement“, „Sirocco“ and his several remixes are characterised by an intriguing knack for detail and precise sound design. Both when spinning records and producing tracks, he is presenting his own interpretation of catchiness, mixing up Techno and percussive House, adding a little deepness, but always keeping an eye on making his audience shake some.
Only leaving his desk in order to indulge some serious clubbing, this guy knows about priorities. With a solid and continuous stream of output under his belt, it is always of interest what David Mayer is up for next.
