Code elektro - Music for cyperpunks!
CODE ELEKTRO is a Danish electro band. The music is characterized by the use of analog and digital synths - arpeggiators and sound design. It could sound like something from a modern Blade Runner, Stranger Things or TRON.
March 23rd 2015 Code Elektro released the critically acclaimed debut album, SUPERSTRINGS, on Iceberg Records (vinyl and digital). The album has been nominated for a GAFFA AWARD for Best Danish Electronic Album 2015. Also the track "Cyber Dreams" was used for a PUMA commercial.
A year later, June 3rd 2016, Code Elektro released the album: "WOLF". The new album is a concept album, which mixes themes such as technology, the future and the role of man in relation to nature. Each track on the record describe a feeling or action - and all of the tracks describe an adventure. From the initiation ritual in the wolf den, to the Scandinavian nature, storm, darkness of the night, the city lights - and to the final transformation.
The album, "WOLF", was nominated for a GAFFA Award for Best Danish Electronic Release 2016.
Jon Gotlev (Liserstille, NoHeroes) created the cover and illustration. He also created the large inner cover illustration for the vinyl.
Samuel Hejslet (Lukas Graham) plays sax on "Transformation" and Leonardo Badinella (Billy Sheehan) plays guitar solo on "Lost in Time".
DYNAMIC SOUND ON "WOLF"
Code Elektro has partnered with Nordic Dynamic and Peter Lyngdorf (HifiKlubben) about sound quality and dynamics. The vinyl version - and a special Nordic Dynamic version – both have more dynamics and better sound quality, which otherwise is not possible on traditional platforms such as iTunes, Spotify and TIDAL. This allows for "Wolf" to have a form of natural texture and extra musical depth - although the sound universe is very electronically.
