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:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

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
