Rune Reilly Kølsch (born C. 1979), also known as Rune RK, Rune' and Enur, is a record producer and DJ from Denmark. Together with his half-brother Johannes Torpe they make up the musical production team Artificial Funk.



Rune started producing music in 1995, when he released the single "Zone One", experimenting on techno and drum & bass. Alongside his half-brother Johannes Torpe, he formed the Artificial Funk production team in 2000. The pair achieved some notoriety by being signed to Skint Records in 2002. In 2003, Artificial Funk released the track "Together", which was nominated for the Top 10 tracks of the year by DJ Mag.

Still in 2003, and working under the Rune RK name, they released the track "Calabria", an instrumental house tune with a synthesized saxophone riff, on Credence, a sublabel of Parlophone Records, for which he received the Danish Music Award in 2004. Following the remakes of "Calabria" by Drunkenmunky and Alex Gaudino, this one reaching #4 in the UK charts under the name "Destination Calabria", Rune and Torpe remade the track with new ragga vocals provided by Danish singer Natasja Saad, which peaked at #9 in France, #3 in Canada, #3 in Portugal, and #43 in the U.S. [1] and finishing #1 on iTunes-US sales chart in the Dance-genre[2], making it one of the most popular reggae fusion songs to date. The song also appeared in a commercial for Target.

Enur released his first album, Raggatronic, a predominantly reggae fusion album, on 9 September 2008 and has guest-appearances by Natasja, Natalie Storm, Majid, Beenie Man, Greg Nice, Chopper City Boyz, Nicki Minaj, and Collie Buddz Michael Rune.

Rune and Torpe have also founded the labels ArtiFarti Records (2005), (2006) and Nightology Records (2008).
