Code Elektro - Driving on the Moon
Code Elektro was founded in 2012 by Martin Ahm, an electronic Synthwave artist from Denmark. His main focus was creating music that could move its listeners and bring them into a deep atmosphere. Martin design a sound that explores space, curiosity, and imagination. Being a huge fan of science fiction and cyberpunk has influenced his musical style.
Code Elektro music is characterized by the use of synthesizers and sounds similar to the soundtracks of epic movies like Blade Runner and TRON: Legacy. Even if Martin finds inspiration from these movies, he aims to create something new. All though Synthwave still is a niche genre, it starts to be more and more popular. This genre is already widespread into TV-shows and movies like Stranger Things, Halt and Catch Fire, Maniac and Bandersnatch, etc.
Starting up with four subsequent singles, Code Elektro is getting ready to release his fourth LP record, Never Mind the Solar Wind. Just like the other albums, “Never Mind the Solar Wind” theme is about space and exploration of it. The focus is optimism like in beginning of the space age (1960s). There’re a few spoken lines in every track, but combined they tell a story about a cosmonaut on a journey out in space and also how to find the way home again.
