Justus Kohncke is among the artists pushing Michael Mayer’s Kompakt label past its microhouse boundaries. The Köllner has strong roots in house—he was part of Ladomat’s Whirlpool Productions during the ’90s—but it’s his love of disco and ’80s pop that really shapes his sound. His productions tend toward the melodic and sensitive, but he’ll amp these up for the dance floor in what should definitely be a rewarding DJ set. With Eamon Harkin, Justin Carter, and Doug Singer.
