Kornel Kovacs

Kornél Kovács has been a household name on the Swedish dance scene for more than a decade, as a DJ, producer and part of the record label Studio Barnhus in Stockholm. His debut album — named after Jeff Mills’s techno gem “The Bells” — was recorded in Gothenburg during a two week stint with friend and studio engineer Matt Karmil and showcased the young Swede at the top of his game. The Bells was a quirky, mischievous and always entertaining album packed with slick pop melodies, dazzling disco beats and funky house music. In a genre rarely associated with humour, Kovács attempted to bring back the fun to the dancefloor –- and succeeded.
