Kolsch - 1977

Speicher staple and renowned club juggernaut, Kolsch debuts on Kompakt with the full-length “1977”, an extraordinary collection of club gems that introduces his earlier masterpieces like “Loreley” or “Opa” that we reviewed previously, such as exclusive new material. Here, the epic, the rad and the snappy find themselves under one expertly crafted groove, making this album an essential choice for both home clubbers and floor hounds… your new best friend is here and it’s a record. This was above all one of the most anticipated albums just before summer. It has been released the 24th June 2013 to be precise.

TRACKLISTING – KOLSCH – 1977 [Buy the album]

Despite the name and despite our well-documented love for Cologne’s beer, Kolsch isn’t a local and he didn’t label himself after the famed brew. Even with a much-acclaimed print run and a series of venerated live appearances under his belt, award-winning Danish producer Rune Reilly Kölsch has to regularly duck quizzical questions about his heritage. And yet he couldn’t be clearer: take, for example, established floor favorites “Opa” (German for “Grandfather”), “Der Alte” (a classic German TV series) or “Silberpfeil” (a legendary German racing car)… those track titles all refer to Rune’s memories from a childhood spent in Germany.

“1977” isn’t a simple “Best of” hack job, however: with new crackers “Basshund”, “Bappedekkel” and “Eiswinter” lighting the fire, Kolsch doesn’t need to worry about future impact. And then there’s a cut like “Oma”, an emotive counterpart to the slightly sardonic “Opa” and every bit as engaging as canonical hyperballad “All that matters”. For the grand finale, Rune turns to “Loreley”, the inaugural release of the project and to this day a massive banger in its own right - so powerful in fact, that the shock needs to be absorbed by two more tracks: the sweeping “Wasserschutz” and a Trojan horse called “Felix”, originally intended to be an album outro of sorts… but then someone pushed the button and the transdimensional portal sprang to life.

Following a series of best selling singles for Kompakt's Speicher imprint, that I personally bought, Kolsch enters the album arena with his debut full length. "1977" features new edits of the hits that put him on the map including "Opa" and the 2012 anthem "All That Matters" alongside unreleased material that has been tried and tested in his live sets over the past year.

More precisely, "All That Matters" reached mainstream charting in Belgium and has been played by a dizzying array of mainstream and underground DJ's. One of the biggest crossover hits for Kompakt since Gui Boratto dropped "Beautiful Life".
