WATCH: Kölsch performs a grandiose sunset set atop the Eiffel Tower

This post was originally published on this site

DJ Snake just might have started a trend amongst DJs, as Danish house and techno producer Kölsch is the latest electronic artist to perform atop a Parisian landmark. Rather than performing on the Arc de Triomphe, as DJ Snake did early in September, Kölsch took his music to new heights with a set on the Eiffel Tower.

Fresh off the release of his eerily evocative, autobiographical album 1989, the artist delved into his brand new and incredibly spectacular emotive tunes only to be rightfully met with a stunning sunset. The view of the city was streamed live courtesy of Cercle, a platform that curates magnificent sets in peculiar places.

The legendary performance also kicks off Kölsch’s tour. If this show serves as any indication, it’s one not to be missed.

Listen to Kölsch’s emotive ,autobiographical new album ‘1989′

This post was originally published on this site

Danish native and highly-revered producer Rune Reilly, better known as Kölsch, delivered the final installment in his autobiographical album trilogy for Kompact Records, 1989.

In the record, Reilly’s finely tuned techno craftsmanship is met with a newfound emotive elevation of his artistic output into a deeply impassioned epic.

Kölsch began the Kompact series with early childhood memories and influences on 1977—his birth year–and delivered the second installment, 1983 as a vibrant and picturesque journey sound tracking the year he traveled through Europe as a child. 

Now, on 1989, Kölsch delves into his early teens. Years he’s described publicly as quite difficult, explaining: “…I mostly just remember the greyness of it all – grey feelings, grey weather and my own grey face.”

Outside of navigating the trials and tribulations that come with teenage years, Reily’s parents also divorced that year. 

“I would escape that grey world on my skateboard, listen to my Walkman as I explored the city around me. Music became my savior – the only way to overcome my family’s hard times. I found a soundtrack to my grey life, and suddenly there was color.”

Reilly’s affinity towards grey feelings in this time may also offer an explanation as to why several of the tracks on the album are named “grey,” albeit in a hand full of different languages.

1989 is truly an ascension in the techno reigns for Reilly. Within its sonic landscape is an intensified deployment of real-life orchestral sounds and the continuation of a longtime collaboration with composer Gregor Schwellenbach. Considering Kölsch’s propensity for vivacious vocalist cameos on his albums, it’s hardly a surprise to find that the hauntingly beautiful track “In Bottles” features Norwegian singer-songwriter Aurora Aksnes.

With as timeless an output as Reilly has had, expectations were high for 1989. Keeping the iconic tracks like “Loreley”, “Der Alte”, “DerDieDas” or “Cassiopeia” in mind, it’s a wonder how on 1989, he occupies a sonic space that’s somehow even more beautiful. But it is with this sonic marriage in mind, of both classical and contemporary techno elements, that Reilly has achieved the record’s greatest impact.

He’s mastered the old, so it’s only right that he dominate the new, too.

Tomorrowland 2017 Announces First Round Of Artists

This post was originally published on this site

Tomorrowland, one of the biggest electronic music festivals in all the world, has just begun announcing its artists for 2017. On the lineup will be:

Alison Wonderland | Alok | Armin van Buuren | Axwell Ingrosso | Chris Liebing
Claptone | 
Dave Clarke | Eats Everything | Edu Imbernon | Eric Prydz | Flux Pavilion
Frequencerz | Hard Driver | Jauz | Kölsch | Netsky | Nic Fanciulli | Oliver Heldens
Pan-Pot | Paul Kalkbrenner | Paul van Dyk | 
Roger Sanchez | Solomun | Sub Zero Project

Keep in mind this is just the first phase of artists. Tomorrowland is notorious for its excessively large lineups, and if the stage hosts are anything to go by, there’s going to be a lot of amazing music this year over two weekends.

Tomorrowland also announced the first artist for their Daybreak Sessions, generally sets that begin at noon and last approximately three hours. These slots usually go to more well-established acts, giving them an interesting opportunity to show off their flexibility and perhaps show the crowd a different side to their music.

This year’s first artist: Carl Cox.

Michael Mayer (co-owner of Kompakt) redefines “serial collaborator” with new & release on !K7 Records

This post was originally published on this site

Michael Mayer, co-owner of the Cologne-based Kompakt and prolific provider of danceable electronic tunes in his own right, could theoretically be combating nonexistent notions of his own persistent solitude. Nobody necessarily thinks that Mayer prefers entire cars to himself whenever he rides the local Stadtbahn from spot to spot, but nonetheless, here he is presenting a momentous third full-length album that’s literally filled with people other than himself contributing musically and correspondingly appearing in the credits as one-half of a series of Mayer-led duos. Don’t feel the need to draw parallels between the production of this album and that of so many rap-centric ones, because unlike the latter, Mayer has made sure to separate his musical family in order to avoid overcrowding. Personal space is important.

& is appropriately the official name of Mayer’s new release, out October 28 on the Berlin-based !K7 Records, and as you can tell by the tracklist below, nary a track goes by in which Mayer isn’t joined by another well-established musical figure. As far as how Mayer went about selecting these collaborations, he says “all of those involved are good friends of mine and not random choices selected from some Top 100 list. These people mean a lot to me – and by that the music we produced together is heart driven and emotionally powered.”

Some of these collaborations harken back to earlier ones or earlier remixes. I’m personally looking forward to the melodic fruits of the Mayer/Hauschka relationship. Pre-order the album here.

Here’s a track:

01. Michael Mayer & Roman Flügel – We Like To Party
