Kornél Kovàcs

The 30-year-old DJ, producer, and Studio Barnhus boss may not be churning out full-throttle festival fodder, but he does have a track record of producing some of the quirkiest and most unforgettable dancefloor stompers in recent years—including the wonky house track “Szikra” (released on Studio Barnhus in 2014), and gloriously campy “Pantalon” (off his Radio Koko EP for Numbers in 2015). Kovács’ ear for catchy hooks, along with his innate playfulness and desire to go beyond his comfort zone, culminates with his debut album, The Bells, out August 26 on Studio Barnhus—the Stockholm-based label he founded with his friends Axel Boman and Petter Nordkvist.
