fabric presents Kölsch is a ten-track journey of exclusive new material inspired by and named after flights from his gig schedule. Rune Kölsch is responsible for developing an immersive leftfield aesthetic now synonymous with the label Kompakt where he opts for rich, cinematic palettes over monochromatism. His sound offers an alternative vision of techno using vivid aural imagery to appeal to the whole spectrum of human emotion.
Drawing from the routine experience of flying from show to show, each track imagines its own sonic world from solitary journeys at 30,000 feet. Employing a colourful tapestry of carefully arranged textures, he levitates his way through 60 minutes of blissful hypnotism. At once subtle and expansive, his productions offer a glimpse into a dreamy, visceral world full of transcendent moments. Building on a constant, but gentle line of tension, his track selections tread the line between melancholic and uplifting, never straying too far into either. Microscopic percussive details roll through sprawling backdrops whilst animated glitches form subtle melodic leads. Never one to command attention with force, he explores the space between minute detailing and vast acoustics to mesmeric effect.
