House of Codes


Codes is seedy looking mothafucka, which makes sense, seeing as how his disco-esque beats are characteristic of a nasty old man leftover from the 70's. The youngster was recently signed to DJ Craze & Kill The Noise's super label, "Slow Roast Records," and the whole thing reminds me of Fools Gold Records since DJ Craze has won every DJ title like 69 different times (just like A-Trak) and the label has artists playing everything from dubstep to hip-hop.

Anyways, Codes has been getting some attention due in part to his exclusive mix for Avalon and the moombahtony remix he and Craze did for Duck Sauce's Big Bad Wolf. His 5-track EP, Codes House, has some bangin' tracks on it, and I'll be sharing the highlights with you below...

Dying:

This has been the number one track off the EP and it's pretty obvious why; it's a catchy ass disco slap. In fact, this track is so catchy, I began bobbing my head straight into my desk and I didn't even care. It was awesome. As an added bonus, this track has a nifty little music video to go along with it...

God Bless:

Harvest
HONK, HONK, HONK HONK. HONK HONK HONK HONK HONK HONK HONK. GOD BLESS. Who would have thought so many geese could have made such a nice sounding disco track.

What You Gonna Do:

What am I gonna do? I'm going to listen to this track on repeat over and over again, that's what I'm gonna do. This track is a nice change of pace as it's not a full on disco face smash. There's a nice little electro interlude after each, "whatchu gonna do", which I  think, is a nice touch. Keep on doing what you're doing, Mr. Codes.
