Kornél Kovacs was born in Stockholm and grew up listening to his Hungarian parents’ Kraftwerk tapes while taking drum, piano and singing classes, fell in love with jungle at the early age of 10 and started djing professionally three years later. Back in 2006 Kornél started throwing parties in his hometown, playing at clubs and festivals all around Sweden as well as in Tokyo, Mexico City, New York, London, Barcelona, Berlin and wherenot. He then began hosting the highly influential P3 Dans show on Swedish national radio, partook in the 2008 Red Bull Music Academy and played a smashing peak time set for a packed Sónar By Day stage in 2009 and continued his quest for world dominance with starting the record label/dj trio/love thang Studio Barnhus together with Axel Boman and Petter Nordkvist.

Last year year he started the Puss label together HNNY and now we get his new vinyl only single “1985 Edits” which is basically three stupid fresh edits of tracks from the year he was born, to celebrate the release we here at Discobelle got an exclusive mix recorded live in the basement of the Marie Laveau club in Stockholm that takes on a booming ride through the Kornel soundscape of dirty techno, smooth house and raved up sounds.

BONUS: As an exclusive download, Kornél graciously gave us the cozy, heartfelt and pianobased B-side track “Björn”. Enjoy!


Well known Stockholm producer/dj Axel Boman is on the verge of releasing his anticipated debut album “Family Vacation” (November 11th). Until we can hear the album next week and to celebrate reaching 20 000 followers on Twitter + 11 000 fans on Facebook he awards us all with this magnificent edit of “Riding High On Love” originally done by Jr Walker & The All Stars.


It’s almost the weekend, Stockholm based producer and part of the Studio Barnhus crew Axel Boman makes us get in the right mood with the help of his recent stunning set at the Beats In Space radio show.

Axel also just dropped new track “Fantastic Piano” (taken off his upcoming album of “weid Jamaican space disco” which will drop in November) which sees a classic piano interspersed with funky drums and a booming kick in order to create one elegant sounding track.


The third release from freshly started Berlin based label Odd Socks comes courtesy of Berlin based producer/dj James Creed. “Top Pocket EP” is born from a deep appreciation of lazy grooves, crispy sounding percussion and tumbling synth tones with the occasional handclap and soft sung vocals along with piano tones, the EP has already seen support from the likes of Axel Boman, Homework, Round Table Knights etc. and it will first be released as limited 10″ vinyl with a digital version to be released later in this month.

In support of the new release, and in anticipation of their upcoming shows at Hive, Zurich on December 27th and Panorama Bar, Berlin on January 18th, label owners Creed & Stone have supplied magnificent third installment of the Oddcast series.
