Mayer hot in the box
Went to see Michael Mayer on thursday evening at the, without a doubt, best venue in Copenhagen, Culture Box. In short it was extremely hot, sweltering hot, molten lava hot - seriously, sweat was flying everywhere (Danish summer apparently a force to be reckoned with these days!). A rather timid looking Mayer took the stage (or booth) at around 02:00 and sent an enthusiastic crowd mad. I was rather curious as to whether the Copenhagen audience would embrace the co-Kompakt founder as the true genius he is, but luckily my worries were proven wrong.

The musical hightlight for me was probably when he played Erol Alkan's great remix of Hot Chip's Boy from School. The long build up seemed to fit the up until then rather minamal based set really well. When the vocals set in at around 1:03 into the number you are transported. The fragile vocals of Hot Chip actually might offer the new direction for minimal techno which could propel it (further?) into the public mainstream, which would be fun.
