You thought it was a joke when we released a record named after Cologne's local beer, KÖLSCH. But you were wrong. Rune Riley Kölsch is not a joke. He's a tall Danish guy and it's quite likely that you've already heard some of his tracks out in a club. Maybe something from his amazing Ink & Needle series on his own Tattoo imprint or the track he's most known for: Calabria feat. Crystal Waters. After his impressive debut on KOMPAKT EXTRA "Loreley/Rheingold" he's back with another killer double header. "Opa" is one of the most unusual but yet amazingly effective techno tracks we've heard this year. It's steroid-driven funk with a heavily mental edge and powerful enough to lift the roof of any club. "Der Alte" pays tribute to Germany's long running TV series "The Old Man" with a rather juvenile sounding piano anthem that sits comfortably between balearic disco and Detroit techno. Prost, Mr Kölsch!
