Known for his emotional compositions, the Danish producer Rune Reilly Kölsch is redefining what it means to take total and complete control over one’s body of work and live sets as an electronic music producer. With a poised level of reinvention and ease of reading his audience, Kölsch continues to rewrite the rulebook of modern DJing. Whether he’s performing at Miami Music Week or at a nine-hour residency show in Cologne, fans can expect that his performances are artfully curated and serve as a further testament to his craft and ascension in the global circuit, while simultaneously catering to the audience at hand.
Coming off the heels of a string of high profile festival shows and a stellar BBC Radio 1 show, Kölsch continues to stamp his status as an icon with ease. Last year saw the artist dominate the white isle with an Ibiza residency dubbed “In The Dark,” play the iconic DC 10, dominate Berghain‘s Panorama bar, take on the Eiffel Tower, and even Miami Music Week. Now, Kölsch is looking head on at another of his most exciting debuts to date — Coachella.
Ahead of his Coachella debut, the ever-ascending Rune Reilly Kölsch has curated an incredibly captivating Orbit playlist for Dancing Astronaut, where he weaves pieces that have personally struck a cord, alluding to the mastery, complete with his own notes, that is to come this weekend.
” It will be my first time at Coachella, and I honestly don’t know what to expect,” he told DA of the appearance. “I’ve heard so much over the years, and I can’t wait to dive in and enjoy the whole experience.
