Just in time to kick off festival season, Max Styler and TWERL deliver their brand new track “Wasted Time” on Elysian Records. Opening with a creeping, cinematic buildup, “Wasted Time” blooms with reverberating basslines and warbling synths, all complemented by EVAN GIIA’s glimmering vocal performance. The track feels simultaneously powerful and sensitive as Styler’s production skills take the listener on slow-burning sonic journey that is intensified by the emotions behind the venomous vocals. “Wasted Time” is the first collaboration between Styler and TWERL, who recently released his well-received “Stay” EP on Elysian. The new track varies diversely in sound from Styler’s last single, “All Your Love,” further bolstering his reputation as a capable chameleon of a producer. 2018 is just getting started, so stay tuned for whatMax has up his sleeve next.
Max Styler is no stranger to being in the spotlight – he was signed to Dim Mak when he was only 18 years old, making him one of the youngest producers to be part of such an esteemed record label at the time. To say that 2017 was a fantastic year for Styler would be putting it lightly; the unique sound and impeccable production on his “Heartache” EP gave him both commercial appeal and an underground following. In addition, his track “Roller Coaster” rose to number three on the Beatport charts during its first week, followed by the epic “Knock Me Down” with MAKJ and his three track “Gold” and “Deep Dream” remix package. He rounded out last year with a seven-stop tour of Asia, including Club Space in China, Cubic in Macau and Wired Music Festival in Japan, then proceeded with the massive release of “All Your Love” just days into 2018. Now showcasing yet another side of many with “Wasted Time,” Max Styler proves yet again there is nothing he can’t do.

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.
