'1983' (Kompakt)

Some call him the master of melodies, others call him the king of euphoria, most just stick to the piano man. Whatever your name of choice for Danish pleasure-bringer Kölsch, you can't deny his talent for creating the perfect arms-in-the-air dance music.

Back in the summer of 2013 he released his debut album to massive praise, and it's not hard to see why. The emotion-laced and sunshine-drenched long- player acted as a statement of intent from Rune Reilly Kölsch, and now he follows up '1977' with the equally dizzy '1983'.

Back again on Kompakt, you can expect to hear the same winning formula as last time. The singles 'DerDieDas' (listen below) and 'Cassiopeya' make spellbinding appearances and from there you know the score. 'The Road' is the track that doesn't stop building, and '1983' is a giant slab of synthy goodness.

The whole album features majestic string sections and enough progression to take you to the stars. It may not be as groundbreaking as Kölsch's debut album, but it still hits all the right notes. Fans will be chuffed to bits with this.
