The Studio Barnhus cofounder selects some upbeat house and funk, with wiggling basslines and sun-dabbled melodies.

Along with fellow RBMA alum Kornél Kovács and close friend Petter Nordkvist, Swedish artist Axel Boman runs Stockholm’s Studio Barnhus, a label and tight-knit crew of producers and DJs whose melodically tricky tracks have been sketching new lines onto classic house and techno blueprints. Boman himself came through as a producer after signing to Pampa, the label run by German house maestro DJ Koze, for his 2010 releases Holy Love and Purple Drank. In recent years, he’s released solo material on labels like Play It Down, Glasstable and Hypercolour, but his 2013 album, Family Vacation, was saved for Studio Barnhus., In 2017, he launched the sub-label Barnbarn with new material, and has spent 2018 touring as a DJ and working toward the release of the label’s first compilation album, Studio Barnhus Volym 1.
