Dynamic DJ and producer Kölsch is set to release HAL, his brand-new collaborative effort with Canadian techno heavyweight Tiga, on new label IPSO. Well known for his genre-defining cuts, Danish producer Kölsch has sold millions of records all over the world under his many different monikers, including seminal LP ‘1977’ and his widely acclaimed albums ‘1983’ & ‘1983’ & ‘1989’, with the latter including Kölsch’s biggest track ‘Grey’. A purveyor of deep and minimalist techno, Tiga released his 3-track ‘Stay Cool’ EP earlier this year, with the game changing producer receiving a wealth of support from BBC Radio 1 tastemaker Pete Tong on his last album, the 11-track ‘No Fantasy Required’ on Counter Records. Made up of thunderous A-side ‘HAL’ and a double B-side - containing the cosmic chord patterns of ‘First Blood’ and the sinister build of grumbling ‘Still So High’ - Kölsch and Tiga will also perform together B2B at OFFSonar this summer, with Kölsch also scheduled to play a primetime headline set at Belgian mega-festival, Tomorrowland. “About a year ago I launched my label IPSO”, said Kölsch. “This summer IPSO 002 is coming up, and it's a collab with none other than Tiga. We spent a couple of great days in my Copenhagen studio, and came up with 3 tracks I'm really proud of. Since the first release, I also started my IPSO night in the legendary Gewölbe Club in Cologne. I’ve had amazing nights there over the last 2 years and now it's time to expand.” Having started his IPSO residency in Cologne, playing a mammoth 9 hour sets, Kölsch has since expanded the brand to Miami and Watergate Berlin, with further destinations in the pipeline. Labelled as ‘The King of house” by Annie Mac, who added that Kölsch, the IPSO boss has garnered a reputation as one of dance music’s most talented producers, playing several Ibiza dates over the summer, including ANTS, Hï Ibiza’s ‘In The Dark’ and Circoloco.
