Boomkat Product Review:
When you’re named after a beer you kinda have a lot to live up to, but Danish producer Kolsch makes a good bid for his existence here on ‘Speicher 70’. It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting either as opener ‘Opa’ kicks off in a haze of tape hiss and analogue blips you’d more readily expect to find coming from the Chain Reaction camp. Melodies slowly erupt, but that defiant lo-fi streak carries throughout and is a good look for the Kompakt label in 2011. Let’s hope we see more from Kolsch in the near future.
