Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Code Elektro:
Synthwave. Dystopian Science Fiction Atmospheres, Neon Skylines and eternal Cyberpunk Nights with Acid Rain. That’s Code Elektro. And now it’s live with a real band. Code Elektro is characterized by the use of analog synthesizers and sound design. It sounds similar to the soundtracks of movies like Blade Runner, Stranger Things and TRON: Legacy. However, it also takes a step forward to create something new via sound design, visuals and storytelling.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Code Elektro:
I'm an artist, composer, sound designer and musician. I have always been playing in bands as a bass player. For 10 years I was writing music for commercials and TV - and I built my own studio and got into sound design and synthesizers. After some time I wanted to write my OWN music, and that's when I started Code Elektro.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Code Elektro:
Absolutely. Iron Maiden - "The Number of the Beast". That changed my life. I was 10 years when I heard it and it just sounded so awesome. And I have always been inspired by Iron Maidens cover art. Today I try to reach the same level of excitement in music.


Nagamag:
Can you tell us a little about your live show?

Code Elektro:
I played a live show earlier this year at a live venue in Denmark (Radar). The place was packed and it was an awesome night! I recorded the show and it sounded so good that I wanted to share it...so now there's a new single out (N30n). It was important to me to have a live band. I didn't want to be another artist standing on stage with just a laptop playing tracks. So I invited a drummer and guitarist. And it really adds to the groove and gives it an awesome live feel.


Nagamag:
Favourite Sci-Fi book?

Code Elektro:
DUNE by Frank Herbert. I'm really looking forward to the upcoming DUNE movie by Denis Villeneuve. Fingers crossed that it will be awesome.


Nagamag:
Most artists have a favorite song from a different music genre than the one they are producing music for... Which is yours?

Code Elektro:
Rammstein "Deutschland"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Code Elektro:
Daft Punk Tron Legacy
