From the CB Peeps
2 anyone paying attention to underground dance music the last two years, Steven Hawley and Sage Schwarm (AKA Codebreaker) are a familiar name. Anthemic, electric and criminally infectious, Codebreaker blends a distinct and irresistible mix of the timeless, warm sound of funk with exciting modern extrapolations on disco, italo, electro, house and more. Built with inspiration from artists including The Clash, Tears For Fears, Global Communication, The Beach Boys, Giorgio Moroder and Nile Rodgers, Codebreaker’s long anticipated debut LP is here…The Space Chase is outta space.
By meticulously deconstructing what they “love about the music we love,” the mysterious duo 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.
The Space Chase lends itself to French touch influences crossed with American funk, disco & soul to create the makings of a future dance classic with broad international appeal. The CD features several unreleased tracks and includes 2010 breakout “Follow Me;” a song that quickly caught the attention of world-class tastemakers 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.
