Saturday vinyl hunt: Koelsch “Speicher 70″Posted: November 21, 2011
Here comes something for the dance-floor peak time. After his killing hit “Lorelei” which i used to play in almost all raves this year , a tall Danish guy Rune Riley aka Kölsch (named after Cologne’s local beer) continues the legendary speicher series on Kompakt label. “Opa” is one of the most unusual but yet amazingly effective techno tracks 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!
