The super-hip techno label sign up for London residency

Michael Mayer's uber-cool Kompakt label have announced a London residency at East London clubbing institution Plastic People, in association with whizkids Allez-Allez. Wednesday nights will never be the same again, as the imprint transports its up-to-the-minute acts and DJs over to bring a little rhythm and funk to our midweek evenings.

After a successful jump off in June, when Kompakt imported one of their most interesting new signings and DJmag favourites, The Field, to do their triumphant techno shoe-gazing thing live, subsequent killer shows from the likes of Brazilian dancefloor god Gui Boratto and Matia Aguayo have convinced the label and Allez-Allez that hooking up with Plastic People for a regular monthly showcase is definitely a good idea.

"Plastic People, Allez-Allez and Kompakt are more than just three good reasons to go out on a Wednesday night," opined Michael Mayer. "There's all we need - intimacy, cold drinks and a great soundsystem. It's the perfect framework for deep, wild and sexy Kompakt parties!"

With the next event due to take place in September for the 'Supermayer' album launch party, with the duo of Superpitcher and Michael Mayer playing live, we've also been promised appearances from Justus Köhncke live and Jennifer Cardini later in the year.
