Born 1985 in Stockholm to Hungarian parents, Kornél Kovács' perambulations in music began early and have continued at pace ever since. Raised on that classic, enviable diet of “proper” music training plus parents with killer music taste, Kovács' daytime lessons were given texture at night as everything from Kraftwerk and Art Of Noise to King Tubby and
Boogie Down Productions wafted through the house.
Applying the Stakhanovite work ethic of his heritage, Kovács started knocking on as many of Stockholm's musical doors as possible, teaboying in the city's record stores, stalking its DJs, working his way through the local library's selection of dance music records. Kovács, then a “strange nerd who got to hang around the older cool kids if they found me funny”, even managed to wangle a few DJ gigs on the back of an intense early teenage love of mid-90s drum'n'bass, turning him into “Stockholm's youngest former jungle DJ” by the age of 14.
He has now cemented his position as one of the most prominent producers and DJs around.
In 2017 he’s played nearly every corner of the world, including his first Australian tour, shows at Berlin’s Panorama Bar and New York’s Good Room, a main stage slot at Dekmantel's first Brazilian edition and festival stages in the UK and all around Europe.
