Rune Reilly Kölsch is a danish music producer and DJ from Copenhagen.


Rune has released music under his many monikers, including Rune RK, ENUR, Artificial Funk, Ink and Needle, Kölsch, and worked with a diverse range of artists including Nicki Minaj, Pitbull, Coldplay, NERVO, Steve Aoki and deadmau5. He is known for being the producer and master mind of "Calabria".

"Calabria" and breakthrough[edit]

The original first version of "Calabria" had its first plays in the local clubs of Ibiza in 2003 and before long the vocal edit, featuring Natasja, burst onto worldwide day-time radio. Over the years, "Calabria" has racked up over 50 million views on YouTube and the ‘seemingly indestructible track’, as hailed by The New York Times, has sold over 1 million copies in the US alone and continues to be supported by the dance music elite. "Calabria" was used in a Target Commercial.


Enur (stylized ENUR) was formed in 2005 with his half brother, the renowned Danish designer Johannes Torpe. Enur's first album was the critically acclaimed predominantly reggae fusion album Raggatronic.
