Electric Zoo Releases Official Festival Anthem, Codeko’s “Walking With Lions”

Today, for the first time in Electric Zoo’s storied history, the festival released its official 2016 anthem – Codeko’s “Walking With Lions” featuring Raphaella. In partnership with Armada, the anthem will serve as the soundtrack to New York’s biggest dance music festival taking place next weekend September 2-4.

Electric Zoo tapped burgeoning dance music star and Armada standout Codeko to produce the anthem. As a classically trained musician, Codeko was challenged to create a track that embodied the spirit of Electric Zoo, but he has proven that he was more than worthy of the task. “Walking With Lions” seamlessly blends progressive house elements with an uplifting horn melody to create the perfect backdrop for the track’s powerful vocals.

“We have always wanted to produce a festival anthem that represents the theme of our festival that would resonate with our fans,” said Electric Zoo Festival Director Adam Richman. “There is no questions Codeko’s Walking With Lions does exactly that.”

Codeko, the young 20 year-old producer, was grateful for the opportunity: “I am honored to have been selected to create this year’s Electric Zoo anthem and can’t wait to drop it on the mainstage!”

Limited tickets for Electric Zoo are still on sale here.

Anticipated as the sounds of tomorrow, we’ve highlighted our top five favorite artists that will be playing at the festival that we believe you should be paying attention to right now.

13909255_1098431690194321_6301624675441375797_o

Nick Martin is a notable rising talent that arrived on the scene 2 years ago under the name Investo. During that time he caught the attention of heavy weights Nicky Romero, Sander van Doorn, Denis Koyu among others. Now producing music as Nick Martin, the young talent continues to release professionally crafted tracks that are catchy and festival ready. To get a sense of who he is as an artist. here are five essential tracks from Nick Martin:

“Reality”

Nick Martin’s latest release features wrenching vocals from the talented Lauren Bennett. This track is a festival ready ballad that pulls at the heartstrings with beautiful melodies and a subtle up-tempo beat. It’s a style change for Nick, but ultimately a testament to where he is headed as a musician. ‘Reality’ also received remix treatment from Dave Aude, Dirty Freqs, and StoneBridge.


“Looking For Love”


In collaboration with Nat Dunn, ‘Looking For Love’ is a smooth melodic house track. It emits rays of sunshine and speaks to poolside adventures. It’s upbeat, fun and chill. This track and ‘Reality’ are demonstration of the new Nick Martin.

“Sigma”

Unlike ‘Reality’, Sigma is a pulsing big room track with a skilled melodic piano interlude. It’s suited to what you’d hear on big festival stage. It’s catchy, energetic and full of life. Nick Martin demonstrates his ability to create music that is both melodic and intense.

BONUS:
“Metropolis”

One of Nick Martin’s first tracks, ‘Metropolis’ was produced under moniker Investo. Featured 2 years ago on Nicky Romero’s Protocol radio, this progressive house track is euphoric and uplifting. Ultimately, ‘Metropolis’ is what put Nick Martin on the map.
