After impressing in 2020 with releases on Spinnin’ Records and Tiesto‘s Musical Freedom imprint, Kodat is ready to keep that momentum rolling into the new year with the incredible new single ‘Bad Idea’. As an artist with heavy Jersey Club influences on his high energy music, Kodat introduced this fresh style of music to audiences that may have never heard of it before and he is determined to bring his sound to many more listeners across the globe.
Kodat is a Miami-based electronic dance DJ, producer, and songwriter. Originally from Paris, France, Kodat is known for high-energy club bangers and electrifying pop remixes including ‘Creep On Me’ by DJ Snake & Gashi and ‘One More Time’ by Daft Punk. Racking up thousands of global digital streams, his tracks have been played by some of the world’s biggest artists from Major Lazer to R3hab and danced to at the world’s biggest EDM festivals including Miami Music Week and EDC Las Vegas. Kodat’s career first skyrocketed after his ‘Beat It’ (Michael Jackson) remix went viral. Within days, well-known radios, blogs, and DJs were requesting permission to feature the track. Taking a gamble, Kodat remixed more 80s and 00s hits from Madonna to Modjo and found them instantly championed by influential industry tastemakers and artists.
The French DJ first began making music in 2009, setting roots in the Parisian music scene by working in local radio and co-producing trap records with DJ Cutkiller. Soon, Kodat realized he had more to offer as an electronic dance artist and began to DJ at festivals across Europe. In 2016, inspired by the musical culture and creativity he felt every year at Miami Music Week, Kodat took a leap of faith and made Miami his new home. Speaking of his drive and ability to persevere, Kodat says: “My goal is to make music that makes everyone dance. Music that can be played everywhere. I’m ready for success. This industry isn’t easy and I’ve never had a mentor to show me the way. Without my family’s support I would’ve given up a long time ago. It’s essential for me to give back to them.”
2021 has kicked off perfectly for Kodat as he has delivered a massive new single in the form of ‘Bad Idea’. Using the vocals from Ariana Grande‘s single ‘Bad Idea’, the Miami-based producer showcases his production skills by perfectly matching the vocals to the instrumental. He then playfully edits and chops the vocals in an infectious way that is sure to stick in your mind for hours to come. His high energy style mixed with the memorability of this single is sure to make it a hit and will continue the impressive streak of releases from this talented artist.
