The 2020 upgrade to their debut single remains true to its industrial techno roots but adds a contemporary dancefloor sheen.
On the verge of releasing a new album after a 25-years hiatus, Code releases a rebooted version of their 1992 debut single, ‘Light Years’. The original version was a cross-genre track: With its sinuous, mind-bending arpeggiations and minimal melodic motifs, it pointed towards the future while acknowledging past masters such as Tangerine Dream. The single received support from famous Britsh DJs like John Peel, at Radio 1, and Colin Faver and Colin Dale, at Kiss FM, but it was only available on white label at that time, becoming a highly collectible article to this day.
The full-length rework of ‘Light Years’, that remains true to its industrial techno roots but adds a contemporary dancefloor sheen, will appear on the new album, ‘Ghost Ship’, due to release 6/11.
