Kölsch: It’s been great. Always such a pleasure to perform in the states. the Audience has such an open mind, and I Usually play longer sets. All in all it’s great opportunity to dig out some more obscure tracks. 

EDMTunes: You just performed in Los Angeles on November 25th. How was this particular performance?

Kölsch: It was incredible. I Love Sound as a club. It has an amazing sound system, but it’s the people that make that club. Drinks curfew is at 02, but we always go till at least 03.30. So much fun

EDMTunes: Speaking of ‘I Talk To Water,’ could you share a bit more about the inspiration behind this album and its significance in your musical journey?

Kölsch: The album is about the passing of my father in 2003 and how you can use grief as a driving force. My father was a musician and the album features 3 tracks with him. 

I dug them up during COVID and produced everything around them. It was a healing process to release this music finally. A thing he never achieved when he was alive. 

EDMTunes: In your live shows, how do you integrate the emotional depth of ‘I Talk To Water’ into your performances while ensuring an engaging audience experience?

Kölsch: I have been testing the material for the last 3 years, so my core audience knew the tracks before they even came out. It’s been such a blessing to feel people’s emotional connection to the album. We all have different stories of loss, and everyone can relate.
