For the past seven years Kornél Kovács has been busy rocking dancefloors and boom-boxes worldwide as one third of Stockholm's Studio Barnhus alongside Axel Boman and Petter Nordkvist. The label and DJ trio is spearheading a new era of fearless Swedish off-center dance music, straddling the line between cute and menacing. Anticipation for Kovács' debut album has been rocketing following stand out releases like 2014's wistful Szikra (BARN 022EP), last year's mad party anthem "Pantalón" on Glasgow's Numbers imprint and the late night groove of "Space Jam" on Smallville Records (SMALL 044EP, 2015). On The Bells, Kovács pops open his trunk full of sounds nicked from the lost and found bins of nightclubs all over the world. From the distorted organ chords of "BB" to the stripped down trance-hall beats of "Josey's Tune" and "Szív Utca" and the title track's cinematic romanticism, it's all of the bells and all of the whistles - further positioning Kornél Kovács as one of the most characteristic producers of modern house music. The record was completed in an intense two-week session with Kovács' great friend and great studio engineer Matt Karmil in the cold winter of 2016. Another close friend, artist Malin Gabriella Nordin, has created the album artwork together with her brother Jonas.
