With support from Pitchfork, Resident Advisor and Radio 1, Kölsch has seen his reputation grow and grow since the release of landmark long player ‘1977’ in 2013. Mixmag loved the album, writing that Kölsch had helped “re-define techno” with “chord-surfing piano grooves” and “face-twisting melodic drive.” He delivered one of the anthems of 2014 with Cassiopeia, and played the hallowed Space Terrace and opened Amnesia last summer with Joris Voorn. Now, the Danish producer comes to The Arches to showcase his cutting-edge sound.
Kompakt is the label Kölsch calls home. Influenced by hip-hop, pop and the incredible legacy of Jeff Mills and Derrick May, Rune started producing in 1995, embarking on a string of success stories. In 2003 he released the multi-million selling, saxophone-infused Calabria under the name Rune RK. He then set up Tattoorec – releasing pioneering underground tracks with no titles, just tattoos for artwork, that garnered critical acclaim and support from minimal and techno trailblazers such as Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin, Magda, Tiefschwarz and Ricardo Villalobos.
Elsewhere last year, he’s ripped up the airways with an acclaimed Essential Mix for Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1 (currently sitting at over 72,000 plays on Soundcloud), delivered his incendiary soundscape to Singapore’s world-renowned ZoukOut Festival, and boomed his live show through the heaving basement of London’s XOYO, as well as making a name for himself in Ibiza. All this experience fed into ‘1977’ – from the driving, melodic ‘Opa’ and ‘Bappedekkel’, to the uplifting piano vibes of ‘Der Alte,’ and the euphoric crescendos of ‘All That Matters,’ Kölsch’s ‘1977’ is an achievement that speaks for itself.
A million-selling artist, with remixes under his belt for everyone from rising stars like andhim and Henry Krinkle to big-hitters like Deadmau5 and Coldplay, Kölsch has become one of dance music’s most respected producers. With support from Arches regular Vilmos (The Shimmy, ShangriLa) and the Hot Dance Party DJs, this promises to be a night to remember.

As Scotland’s original superclub, the Arches is the stuff of clubbing legend. There really is no other venue like it in the world.
Repeatedly voted one of the top 100 clubs in the world in DJ magazine, the industrial brick arches are home to a continuous roster of the world’s most in demand DJs and producers from across the dance spectrum, whether it be minimal techno, big bassline electro, hardstyle, deep house, UK bass, dubstep or trance.
With a Funktion 1 soundsystem and three fully stocked bars spread over six subterranean arches, the space is transformed each weekend depending on the faces behind the decks. From huge, sell out nights with platinum selling Ibiza trendsetters such as Alesso and Laidback Luke or legendary acts such as Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, to the hottest, most-hyped names on the dance scene’s lips – from Jamie Jones and Nina Kraviz to Jackmaster and Omar S, ours is one of the most diverse club programmes in the city.
As well as the Arches’ own club nights, which have recently brought the likes of Hot Creations label, Madeon and Chase & Status to the venue, for many fans the Arches is synonymous with either of its two biggest nights, Pressure and Colours.
