I AM KODE
NEW SINGLE – ‘COME STEAL MY SOUL’ / ‘FLOOD’
RELEASE DATE – 9TH JUNE 2017
South West London producer, musician & vocalist I AM KODE, is set to release a new single on Downtown 82 Records on the 9th of June 2017.
‘Come Steal My Soul’, which has already been championed by BBC Introducing, is a double A-Side release and is partnered with a re-worked version of the singer’s debut single ‘Flood’. The latter was awarded Q Magazine’s ‘Track Of The Day’ on its release in Spring last year.
Infectious EDM, underpinned by hooky electronic melodies, both tracks were written, self-produced and recorded in the multi-instrumentalist’s own studio, and will be available digitally at all the usual major outlets. Having recently collaborated with legendary DJ Judge Jules on another project, ‘Come Steal My Soul’ features a dark pumping bass line and catchy chorus, adding another dimension to I AM KODE’s signature production style.
‘Flood’ as well as being granted the aforementioned Q seal of approval, has also been supported by BBC Introducing (BBC Radio London) and had extensive airplay across several UK radio stations. The track was accompanied by an imaginative video directed by ‘Grizzly Kid’ and features actress Liberty Scott.
The multi-talented I AM KODE has been developing his electronic-tinged sound over the past couple of years in his South West London studio. Taking the DIY approach, he prefers to do everything from recording lead and backing vocals, string and orchestral arrangements, synths, pianos, bass lines and drum programming; completely on his own.
Inspired by modern artists such as Calvin Harris, John Newman and Sigala, through to the nostalgic Faithless and Chicane, he merges his own production sound with a slight nod to his influences and the results are both refreshing and stunning.
