SONG OF THE DAY: Rune RK – “Teacup”

Danish producer Rune Reilly Kolsch certainly enjoys jumping through genres from minimal house and electro with his brother as Artificial Funk, to reggae and world beat as Enur, and to progressive house under the moniker Rune RK. His WMC buzz record “Memorize Me” with Databoy follows here with “Teacup,” a subtly minimal track that develops in intensity and becomes as powerful as a big room anthem. The build up is so gradual that you don’t even realize it’s happening. Before you know it you are pumping along with it. DJs who are looking to transition from a mellow opening track to a more big room sound would do well to grab this one. An overtly stylized video clip features mayhem, madness and a head case, personified by Scandinavian models who destroy a ceramic tea service under the voyeuristic enjoyment of Rune himself. Thankfully the models are safely protected by severe facial coverings that will make this video the biggest fetishist fantasy since Armand van Helden’s “Hear My Name.”
