The Danish Rune Reilly aka Kölsch continue his time travel after his debut LP “1977“, which was out two years ago. “1983” is definitly more melodic cause he used more strings and vocals from his collaboration compared to his debut LP, which is truly comprehensible cause his inspiration comes from his childhood car journeys through Europe.
“When I was a kid in 1983, we used to drive through Europe every summer on the way to the south of France. A lot of my early music memories stem from these long travels, as we would listen to all my father’s favorite records on the cassette deck. After getting a walkman, I would make up my own soundtrack for travelling, with early electro and hip hop creeping into my life. My father of course did not like it, and it never graced the official cassette deck of the car, obviously.”
“1983” features collaborations with Gregor Schwellenbach, Waa Industry and WhoMadeWho‘s Tomas Høffding. The whole LP is out today on Kompakt – you can get it here on Beatport. Personally, 1977 would win the battle between both LPs, because I miss some more club-related tracks on the new album. But I would definitly choose the new LP for some moments, if you know, for this dreamy mood.
