There is something under way, you can almost smell it. You've heard that a new sublabel is to be noiselessly launched? It's not true. There is no sub-label. But KOMPAKT will be distributing a brand-new label this autumn. Named after Michael Mayer´s genre-defined mix CD from 2002, Immer doesn´t just signify the birth of another label. IMMER is about indestructible love to timeless music. Totally detached from the KOMPAKT cosmos, Michael Mayer will re-release his personal treasures and secret weapons from the last 15 years of his DJ life. Regardless if they're objects of virtu from the borders of deep-House, or exquisite treasures from the vaults of international minimal Techno's almost infinite history. No matter if it´s about that top secret nugget of local club culture or if it's just the great stomper that you always wanted to have... IMMER cultivates the idea of Techno as an established genre in music history for 2005. It's colorful richness of timeless hymns and evergreens deserve a comprehensive review on Techno's way forward. But before we get too carried away, KOMPAKT will be releasing the pilot of this new adventure entitled "NULL" (translation = ZERO) to be understood as a ceremonial prelude to the official launch of this taste maker collection. Piloted by our humble KOMPAKT leaders; Michael Mayer, Jurgen Paape, MI5 (aka Wolfgang Voigt) and Reinhard Voigt, they open the gates of IMMER with a selection of re-mastered, freshly pimped-up rarities to a realm of 1000 promises. IMMER means ALWAYS - ALWAYS!
