Set for release on Kölsch’s IPSO label, the track – a cleverly crafted progressive embodiment of both artist’s signature styles – follows the imprint’s previous records ‘Dogma’ and Tiga collaboration ‘HAL’.
Already supported by Pete Tong onhis BBC Radio 1’s show, ‘The Lights’ solidifies IPSO’s reputation as one of dance music’s leading labels, with the Dane expanding the brand to Miami, Watergate Berlin, and Amsterdam Dance Event last year. Kölsch also recently performed two sold out IPSO shows to 8,000 people in Antwerp, playing two extended 10 hour sets on consecutive nights at Belgian venue Waagnatie.
Roping in the talents of ‘Last Night On Earth’ label founder Sasha, the DJ and producer’s imprint recently celebrated the landmark of 100 releases with a special debut compilation. Releasing records on Kompakt, Late Night Tales, and Watergate, Sasha also mixed last year’s fabric 99 compilation and recently launched his La Fleur collaboration ‘Förbindelse’ on LNOE.
Proving his skills outside of the studio as well as in it, the dynamic DJ – who has amassed a reputation as a true figurehead of the Ibiza scene, performing at the likes of DC-10 and Privilege – will perform upcoming sets at Motion Bristol, Vujyaday Festival, a forthcoming US tour, and a 3-date Easter schedule around the UK with John Digweed.
Well known for his genre-defining cuts, Kölsch has sold millions of records all over the world under his many different monikers, including seminal LP ‘1977’ and his widely acclaimed albums ‘1983’ & ‘1989’, with the latter including the anthem ‘Grey’.
Labelled as “The king when it comes to piano and house music” by Annie Mac, Kölsch looks set for another busy summer this year with performances lined up at the likes of Printworks London, DGTL Amsterdam, Awakenings Festival, Sonus and Creamfields.
‘The Lights’ is set for release on Friday 22nd March. Buy/stream it here.
