KOTEK Goes Off With Preposterous New Single “Codex” Out Now On Westwood Recordings
After rising to prominence on the back of his massive collaboration “Teleportal” with dance music dynamo REZZ, maverick experimental producer KOTEK is back with a brand new mind-blowing track. “Codex” is a beast of a tune that showcases KOTEK’s ample production chops and innovative approach to sound design. “Codex” opens with an eerie calm before sinister guitar riffs shred through the ether and erupt the track into life. Ominous bass growls intertwine with rattling percussion until speakers percolate from a cacophony of synths and left-of-center instrumentation.
“Codex” has a raw energy and unique arrangement that we can only describe as industrial rock meets IDM with a healthy smattering of glitch thrown on top. The sheer array of visceral sounds and mind-bending production techniques that KOTEK is able to blend together in an organic manner is a testament to this young artist’s talent. With a refreshingly inventive and enigmatic style, KOTEK is carving real estate himself between the lines and beyond the boundaries of electronic music. “Codex” blends genres so seamlessly its no doubt music lovers of all backgrounds will be able to appreciate the musicianship on display.
As a drummer, guitarist and vocalist with roots that stem from metal and jazz, this Canadian artist has the ability to approach electronic production in an organic and all-encompassing manner that gives his music an added dimension. Connect with KOTEK on Facebook and Soundcloud.
