As much as music is audio, it’s very much visual as well. With music that’s so creative that the music creates a world around you, that you can see all the sounds come out in real life in a major way. That type of music is special and Code Elektro has that sound with his latest release “N30n Live 2020”. The music is beyond impressive and we wanted to know more about this special creative. The Producer Spotlight is on Code Elektro.
Who is Code Elektro the Producer?
I write electronic music in the synthwave/retrowave genre under the name Code Elektro. Dystopian Science Fiction Atmospheres, Neon Skylines and eternal Cyberpunk Nights with Acid Rain. That’s what Code Elektro sounds like. And now it’s live with a real band.
How did you get into producing?
I have been playing music all my life. And for 10 years or so I have been writing music for sync, commercials and TV. That way I built up my studio and then one day in 2014 I decided to release my own music (as Code Elektro).
What production software do you use and why?
I use Cubase Pro 10.5 on Macbook Pro. I really like Cubase. Cubase hits a sweet spot between pro audio editing/recording and being creative.
What’s your creative process for creating “N30n Live 2020”?
I was going to play a live show earlier this year and I wanted to bring a live band with me. So I invited a drummer and guitarist to join – and that was really awesome! The venue was packed, the audience loved the music and the drums and guitar gave it a badass groove that I couldn’t get if I only played from my laptop. Super fun!
Thankfully the show was recorded and I have just released my brand new single: N30n
What was your favorite project to work on?
Right now it is the live tracks and playing live. So much fun and a great opportunity to connect with the audience. I hope I can play a new concert soon again.
Which artist would you love to collab with and why?
There are so many awesome artists. But if I could name a few it would be Daft Punk, John Carpenter, Jean-Michel Jarre and Tangerine Dream.
What’s next for Code Elektro?
I’m working on my next release. Which also will be on vinyl. Super exciting 🙂
