Made Event‘s titanic New York-based festival, Electric Zoo, is celebrating its tenth birthday this Labor Day Weekend, August 31st–September 2nd. To mark the momentous double-digit occasion, the wildlife-themed event has added two more headlining artists in Alesso and Tiësto to join the star-studded cast of talent that already tops the 2018 bill: Kaskade, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, and Virtual Self.
UK rising star, Codeko, has seen tremendous growth in 2017 with his remix of Marshmello’s “Silence” topping SiriusXM’s BPM Countdown and, most recently, his single with Austin Mahone, “Say Hi,” taking off. An anthemic combination of vibrant horns, crisp percussion, and catchy lyrics, “Say Hi” balanced dance and pop elements in a creative way, marking a major release for both artists.
For the music video, Codeko and Austin Mahone take center stage as the camera flips between a variety of clips from writing together to playing sold out shows to performing an acoustic version for college students. With the track still gaining steam heading into the new year, both the budding producer and vocal talent are sure to continue building.
While he may still be on the rise, UK newcomer Codeko is certainly making strides to make 2018 his breakout year.
Last year was when the London-based producer made his first stir, earning the official Electric Zoo anthem for his song “Walking with Lions” after winning Mysteryland’s remix contest. Continuing his success into this year, Codeko has remixed Tritonal and NomBe before his remix of Marshmello’s “Silence” went rampant on the Internt and went on to be #1 at SiriusXM’s channel, BPM.
With 2017 coming to a close, the upward-headed talent ends the year off with a major release: his new single “Say Hi” featuring Austin Mahone. A jubilant, mood-boosting piece of dancepop, “Say Hi” maintains a high level of energy due to Codeko’s crisp yet punching production while Mahone’s smooth vocals give it the accessibility both commercial and dance fans will enjoy.
To kick the release of their collaboration, Codeko & Austin Mahone took on the task of playing 8 parties in 24 hours at various venues across the University of Arizona in Tucson. Watch their collegiate marathon recap above and stream “Say Hi” now below.
