Codeko Arrives On Ophelia Records With “Sad Reality” Ft. Casey Cook
As he continues to solidify his status in the Dance music realm, Codeko returns with a new single “Sad Reality.” Featuring LA-based songstress Casey Cook, listeners will be offered a moment of vulnerability and self-reflection as the UK-native coins his first solo release on Ophelia Records.
In just a few years, Ed Clark, known as Codeko, has worked alongside some of the biggest names in electronic music to build an impressive discography of original works, collaborations, and remixes featuring The Chainsmokers, Oliver Heldens, Adventure Club, Tritonal, Wooli, and Charlie Puth.
After a previous collaboration on the song “Crazy”, Codeko and Casey Cook teamed up once again on “Sad Reality”. Inspired by personal trials and tribulations, Cook delivers an emotive performance as she voices the heartbroken in their latest stint as collaborators. “These lyrics are autobiographical and came pouring out when I was nearing the end with my ex,” says Cook.
Known for her captivating melodies and honest storytelling, Casey Cook beautifully applies her vocal prowess on the melodic bass single. Accompanied by an alluring guitar riff and wide soundscapes, Codeko perfectly transcribes Cook’s lyrics into a dreamy and anthemic production.
“‘Sad reality’ is one of those songs that came together incredibly quickly – once I heard Casey’s vocals I sat down with a guitar it just clicked, and a few hours later I recorded the basis for the entire song. The verse guitar harmonies create the ‘bittersweet’ I wanted, and the synth-heavy drop provides the energy. It took a bit more work to get the two elements to blend together cohesively, but the end result is a track I’m very fond of,” — Codeko
Making an emphatic return to Ophelia Records since the release of “Crazy” with Wooli. “Sad Reality” marks the arrival of Codeko on the independent dance music label, founded by DJ/Producer Seven Lions. Since its inception, the imprint has added over 100 releases to its discography and championed one of the most talented rosters within dance music. Now home to the English DJ/Producer, Codeko is continuing to set himself apart by reimagining old and modern sounds to make it his own.

Pushing Daizies Release Debut Album ‘Initium,’ Out Now On Dim Mak
After the much-anticipated announcement of their true identities, Pushing Daizies officially release their first full-length body of work with their ‘Initium’ album. Featuring an epic culmination of twelve tracks, the LP features formerly released favorites such as “Want It To End,” “Dreams,” and “I Want To Know” as well as five brand new tracks. True to the Pushing Daizies style, each new track is both melodic and meaningful in its own way, exemplifying the emotion and personal experiences that take the shape of every song. From the nostalgic, heartfelt vocals of “Without You” to the melodic dubstep and angsty vibes of “I Would Never” and “Break Your Heart,” the duo hits right in the feels. “Left4Dead” is the breakup song you’ve been waiting for, while “Edge Off” featuring Kelsey Ray is perhaps one of the most upbeat and groovy songs of the album. No matter what your mood is, ‘Initium’ has a place. Read on for Riot Ten and Stoutty’s inspiration behind the album:
“This album means so much to us. We’ve been working on it for over a year, and it’s our first album together as Pushing Daizies. There’s so much emotion that went into the process, especially during a time period like we’ve never experienced before. I don’t think we’ve ever been more proud of a full body of work like this, and this is just the beginning. We hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as we did creating it.” – Riot Ten & Stoutty (Pushing Daizies)
Pushing Daizies is the pseudonym of US-based producers Riot Ten and Stoutty joining forces. The enigmatic duo makes groovy, bass-heavy, electronic dance music that creates an emotional roller coaster, pulling at the heartstrings of its listeners. The project, which initially began as multiple collaborations between the two artists, transpired as their synergy saw no end in sight. “Once we found our rhythm, we knew we had something special. It was bigger than just a few singles. I guess you could say that the project was an accident in the greatest way possible,” said one of the producers. The term “pushing daisies” refers to the flowers that grow over a burial plot when someone dies, which is symbolic of the cycles of life and death, light and dark. Said differently, when someone dies, life is created.
