Alex Gaudino - Destination Calabria, landed at top 4 in the UK single charts. Runes own version Enur - Calabria, also created mayhem across Europe in the summer of 2007 ending up with topping the American airplay chart in the beginning of 2008. A new updated version of Calabria has already been adopted by The Swedish House Mafia and more and is looking to be one of the big hits for the 2008 Ibiza season. Not one to stand po-faced against a wall in a club, Rune believes that many DJs have forgotten where they came from - "they used to be in front of the speakers dancing and screaming along with everybody else" - and once in awhile he still knocks the needle off the records during his sets because he is dancing so much. Having won best club DJ off the year 4 years in a row in his home country Denmark, Rune is known for his unique blend of classics and new releases. His technique is beyond just playing the tracks.
You’ll see him adding accapellas, and his sets consist mainly of special edits created for the occasion. Rune believes that it’s important to deliver a show, so there is a lot of action behind the decks. In 2005, rune and his brother Johannes Torpe (half of Artificial Funk), decided to take matters into their own hands. Tired of labels with conventional ideas of how to release their music, they joined forces and created their own label Arti Farti. A couple off releases in, Arti Farti is a grand success. With support from Laurent Garnier, Pete Tong, Roger Sanchez to Josh Wink, the label is set for the stars. In 2006 the brothers also created Tattoorec.com.
With its unique concept of no titles, only tattoos, the label quickly gathered support from the biggest minimal DJs across the globe. Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin, Magda, Tiefschwarz, RicardoVillalobos, all support the weird and experimental releases. It’s a playground for the brothers, with focus on challenging the limit of what will work on a dance floor. All releases from Rune, being on Tattoorec, or Arti Farti have deep roots from Detroit and Chicago, and it’s important for him to keep each release exciting and fresh sounding. 2006, Rune also joined forces with Jerome Sydenham, a long time hero. They created the label Avocadorecs, and their first release Elephant/Cantstop not, got plays from everyone.
Also Rune was granted the honor of remixing the classic "That’s the way love is", by Ten City released on Ibadan.
