Info

LOCKED Anniversary w/ Michael Mayer One of the key figures of Cologne, Germany's electronic music scene, Mayer has a durable reputation as a remixer, DJ, and producer. He's released numerous well-received mix CDs and singles, as well as a handful of studio albums. The majority of his tracks have been released by Kompakt -- the legendary techno label and distributor he helps run with founder Wolfgang Voigt -- and Kompakt-related labels like New Trance Atlantic (NTA) and Kreisel 99. His own productions, whether dabbling in house or techno, tend to be minimal with dubby flourishes -- and no two sound alike. Mayer was born in the Black Forest, Germany in 1971 and moved to Cologne when he was 20. He began working at a record store called Delirium along with Wolfgang and Reinhard Voigt, Jörg Burger, and Jürgen Paape. The entire group became instrumental in establishing the city's techno scene through several labels and club nights. Mayer released his first two 12"s on NTA in 1997, before Kompakt was established in 1998, combining numerous labels, the record store, and event organization. Kompakt Köln Präsentiert Michael Mayer, a mix album of tracks from the likes of Sanasol, Herbert, OM1, and the Modernist, was released in 1998 by Neuhouse. Four years later, Kompakt issued Immer, another mix album. Tracing the developments made in microhouse/tech-house since Mayer's previous mix, the disc featured material from Carsten Jost, Akufen, Selway, and A Rocket in Dub, and it showcased an unrivaled knack for selecting and sequencing. At this point, Mayer became something of a poster boy for Cologne techno. In 2003, he released a pair of mixes. The first was one of the first several releases in Kompakt's Speicher 12" series, while the second -- a more playful and melodic affair -- was commissioned by London's Fabric series. The following year, Mayer released a second Speicher mix and finally delivered his long-promised debut album of productions, Touch. During the next few years, as he continued to operate Kompakt, he put together Immer 2 and Immer 3, as well as his second and third overview mixes of the Speicher releases. He also collaborated with Superpitcher as SuperMayer, which released an album on Kompakt in 2007. Mayer kept busy as a remixer (with Moby, Pet Shop Boys, and Depeche Mode among his clients) in addition to DJ'ing around the world and continuing to run Kompakt. His follow-up to Touch didn't arrive until 2012. That album, Mantasy, was released in October. Following another break from solo productions, Mayer released a split 12" single with Reinhard Voigt in 2015. He then collaborated with Kölsch on a 12" released by IPSO in 2016. Later in the year, !K7 released &, Mayer's third studio album, which featured collaborations with Miss Kittin, Hot Chip's Joe Goddard, Gui Boratto, and several others. Mayer's installment of !K7's long-running DJ-Kicks mix series arrived in 2017. ~ Andy Kellman & Paul Simpson, Rovi

Avda. Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia 13, Barcelona, Spain

In the depths of the famous Poble Espanyol you can find one of Barcelona’s techno hubs, INPUT High Fidelity Dance Club. INPUT was born with one ambitious goal in mind: to make your night an incredible, out of this world experience. When you cross through the emblematic door that separates the medieval spirit of the old Spanish village nothing will be the same again. Your senses will sharpen, your mind will experience a sensory overload and you will witness unrivalled acoustics that will take you to a new level of music appreciation. Saying that, it’s not just music, it’s art; spectacle and creativity in its purest form. Its unique, circular structure brings the audience even closer to the performing artists. The intimacy of the venue makes people forget about their differences and everyone dances and interacts together regardless of the language they speak. High ceilings and impressive balconies create the perfect atmosphere to house the eardrum penetrating sound system that leaves you absolutely helpless before a huge display of decibels. But that’s not all, the LED lighting and the latest generation audiovisual technology will take you into a world of psychedelia that will make saying goodbye to the night nearly impossible. INPUT has an undeniable electronic culture. A wide variety of records, styles and disciplines have been played through INPUT’s booming speakers. Techno, tech-house, house, minimal and infinite derivations of these styles. Kölsch, Joris Voorn, Stephan Bodzin, Apollonia, Pan Pot, Adam Beyer, Robert Hood, Derrik May, Worakl's, Charlotte de Witte, Oxia, Marcel Dettmann and dozens of other names who have passed through this one of a kind room. In terms of the dress code, trends and fashions are worthless here. Be yourself, be comfortable and dress as you want. The only thing we recommend is a good pair of shoes, otherwise you might burn through the soles on the dance floor. The clubs is open every Friday and Saturday night as well as the night before some holidays. The opening hours are usually from 12:30 at night until the last beats sound at 6:00 in the morning. You can buy your tickets in advance through Xceed or you can buy them at the door at an additional cost. Note that prices will be higher at the door so if you want to save a few euros and a few minutes of queuing, we advise you to book your ticket through the app. Given the number of high quality Djs that pass through the Input booth, it’s no surprise that the sold out poster has been hung on several occasions. The cost of the ticket just depends on how keen you are to attend the event. The price of the early birds usually range between 5€ and 7€. But you have to be fast because they fly. The first release of the main tickets are usually priced at 10€ and the second at 15€. If your night at INPUT is a spontaneous decision, the price at the door is 18€.
