Chinese Laundry Garden Parties have been infamous in the Sydney scene since their launch in 2009. This season has already seen Andy C & Scuba hit Sydney with huge sets, and now Kölsch will take to the garden stage, giving fans new and old a chance to dance in the sunshine!
A melodic autobiography on black wax, the Kölsch project has seen 36/37-year-old Rune take stock of a diverse and successful production career and draw upon his own personal beginnings: a nostalgia for childhood, family, friends and the confusion of applying his spirit-cultural heritage to what it means to think of 'home'. As Rune freely admits, "being half Irish, half German and living in Denmark – it was all one big messy period of my life."
Following on from that album, 2015 saw Kölsch release "1983", continuing with his tradition of dancefloor destroyers that are continuing to send clubs and festivals across the globe into melodic supernova.
Kölsch continues to perform to the highest calibre, serving an acclaimed Essential Mix for Pete Tong to the BBC Radio 1 listeners, setting the Fabric main room alight with his sound, playing Space Terrace – in his words "a boyhood dream since I started going to Ibiza in 1999" and opening Ushuaia in 2015. Kölsch has continued this run of global domination with his Australian Tour, South American Tour and also the Ibiza commitments in 2015, where he played Space and Amnesia + closing Ushuaia with Antz. Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac has shown her undying support, noting 'that man is sort of King when it comes to pianos and House music.'
Sydney's "Pinot House" pioneer, Jeffrey Alexander will be supporting Kölsch, fitting perfectly into this slot with his own views on music, and beautiful music to back it up.
"Nothing feels quite like the music you first fall in love with. It was yours. It took you beyond your conscious, it healed, it introduced you to cool."
