Long time in the making, New York's own Codes brings you his debut album on Slow Roast Records,Brooklyn Bounce. Premiered on Pete Tong's radio show last night and shared via Thump today, the album is already seeing support from some of the biggest names in dance music.
Growing up on high doses of Hip Hop, R&B, Jungle and Garage, Codes' favorite influences have been vibed together for a new kind of House record that lives on and off the dance floor. Slow Roast label head, DJCraze, makes an appearance on the album with the ambient "Body Rock," while lead single, "We Get Crazy" features up and coming songstress, Janelle Kroll.
"Vinyl spins, heavy synth, and some old school '90s pop flavor provide an ample foundation for Codes' heavily textured creation." - LessThan3 "Codes is one of those artists whose creativity and production talent makes it difficult to fully describe as he’s prolific in all dance music genres." - Dani Deahl "One of dance music's most consistently on-point tunesmiths...excels at making records that are deep-digging crate gems." - DoAndroidsDance "An all around fun party single that will have you dancing in no time" - Earmilk

Get to know NY based DJ/Producer, Codes. His ingenious sample manipulation and a decade of experience on the decks has lead to popularity among dance music vets and newcomers alike. Laced with big ass kick drums and a tight low end, Codes' sound has developed into a Brooklyn Bounce style all his own. Whether it be the remix he did with A-Trak for disco legend Cerrone’s ”Misunderstanding“ or his own Cristal classic ”Guzzlin’ Champagne,“ or his bangin rework of Breach's "Jack," Codes keeps the funk in dance music.
Captivating audiences across the world with his dance floor control, Codes has played at massive events like HARD Summer, Valtifest in Amsterdam, NY's Camp Bisco, and LV's Life Is Beautiful, as well as legendary venues such as Pacha New York, Avalon Hollywood, Webster Hall, Brooklyn's Output and Verboten and The Wiltern LA. He has toured Down Under with Slow Roast label bossman, Craze, to give Australia a taste of what’s cooking’ in Codes’ kitchen as well.
One of the busiest producers in the studio, Codes pumped out a slew of free Brooklyn Bounce tracks for download last summer and a Salsoul Remix EP that is out now on Ultra Records. You can look forward to the release of Codes' debut album this summer on Slow Roast.
