Fabric recently relaunched their mix series compilation with a bit of a different look and feel, making it more multi-dimensional with the artists to include a mix compilation and take part in a series of shows. After Bonobo kicked off the series, Kölsch is the next one up, taking a bit of a different approach. This time he is releasing an entire album of new material inspired by various flights he has taken around the world.
Often DJs struggle to make music when traveling, as they can’t get into a creative headspace with the lack of sleep, show prep and disorganization that comes with airline travel. Kölsch has flipped that into a new album inspired by the flights and the views he had from them. The songs are named after each flight, which makes for some difficult reading, but you have an idea of where he was going and coming from.
The compilation is meditative and transports you to somewhere more serene as you can imagine Kölsch peering down on the world from 35,000 feet. His team also shared the corresponding flight patterns, so you can imagine the view on “KM477” going from Paris to Malta.
