Michael Mayer "That's What I Told Sanchez" 
With its boardwalk carnival of an intro, this freebie from Kompakt frontman Michael Mayer marks the 12th edition of the prominent techno label's ongoing showcase series. "That's What I Told Sanchez" is a shoo-in for the lead-off track, beginning atmospherically before morphing into a gypsy hypno-freakout from outerspace. Actually the third track on a comp that boasts contributions from all the labe's founding fathers, Mayer's contricution throws chattering percussion, a Middle Eastern-voiced caterwaul, bursts of steam, lazer fire and robotic bird mating calls into the mix. 

Other things to look forward to: the debut of new material from Superpitcher, a remix of GusGus from Visionquest signees Tale of Us, a cut lifted from Gui Boratto's stunning III, and Wolfgang Voigt is featured twice, once in his solo guis and the other, a techno-shoegaze hybrid, recorded as Mohn with Jorge Burger.

Needless to say, it's all classically Kompakt and well worth repeat spins.
