Codebreaker's last 12" single, “Follow Me” quickly caught the attention of world-class taste makers including The Juan MacLean (DFA/NYC), Bottin (Italians Do It Better/Venice), and The Outrunners (Valerie/FR), all of who gave the single remix treatments. A brief time before that, came the critically acclaimed double 12" single, "Fire" feat. UK disco diva Kathy Diamond, which elicited praise from the likes of The Washington Post and Pitchfork. Codebreaker proves more & more that its uncontainable mix is anything but ordinary. By meticulously deconstructing what they “love about the music we love,” Hawley and Schwarm create a sound that is equal parts light and dark by balancing the clean, cool sophistication of electro with the playful passion of disco, while always throwing a little funky swagger into everything they do.
Despite these credentials, nothing quite captures Codebreaker's brilliant & distinct stamp on dance music like “Silver Lining”, an epic glimpse into their forth coming album, "The Space Chase" coming soon.
So epic, that Silver Lining pulled classic house music legend, Joe Smooth out of retirement for remixing duties. The result is a unique new sound that's a bridge between indie disco, house/dance & even boogie/funk worlds. Which makes sense when you look at Hawley's DJ touring schedule; he's with Tim Sweeny one night & Ultra Nate' the next.
