WHERE TO GO: Kornél Kovács & Pional at Phonox


Since opening its doors in 2011, Phonox has carved out a scene from London’s busy clubbing landscape. With a pretty simple ethos of serving up some world-class DJs in a really friendly environment. They tie it up quite well by not allowing photos and with their all-night long Saturday nights you get to listen to some tip-top music. Great club basically, I love it in there.

This Saturday Kornél Kovács & Pional are taking hold of the reins. Kornél Kovács has been making a lot of noise on the scene, notably with his killer Boiler Room earlier this year. Back in his native Stockholm he manages the Studio Barnhaus label with best mates Axel Boman and Petter Nordkvist, which is doing really well having charted over fifty releases. Blending Kovács house/disco is Spanish big boy Pional. A real musical talent whose work spans across production, songwriting and a multitude of instruments. With various releases across Hivern Discs and Permanent Vacation, it will be a real treat to watch him team up with Kovács. A great booking from Phonox.
