4.0 excellentRoundOnEndHiInMiddle | August 31st 16

One would assume that producing multi-dynamical music in a genre as inherently repetitive as house would be a hassle, but Kornel Kovacs makes it all sound so easy. So much of The Bells is multi-faceted, due in no small part to the various styles employed here. "BB" gets things going with energetic funk and soul samples, gifting an incredible danceability to it, whereas closer "Urszusz" is largely tranquil and warming, allowing for a period of rest from the driving rhythms. The vibes the record gives are many as well. Tracks like "Dollar Club" are wondering and even slightly ominous, whereas tracks like "Dance... While The Record Spins" are fun and welcoming. The highlight of all this is "Josey's Tune", which mixes heartwarming melodies and playful synth work with a watery feel, thus managing to be one of the most vivid and lovely electronic tracks of the year. In a nutshell, Kovacs' debut full-length is a masterful collection of outsider house that combines it's deep house roots with funky house to excellent effect.
