Kodat Drops An Amazing Remix Of ‘Is There Someone Else’? By The Weeknd
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” (DJ Snake, Gashi) and “One More Time” (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 Vegas.
When speaking on the remix Kodat said : “I’m a huge fan of The Weeknd and I really think “Is There Someone Else?” is one of the best tracks on the Dawn FM album. I wanted to create something unique… A high-energy track with the fusion of the 80s vibes and Drum&Bass”.
Kodat broke into 2020 by signing two major record deals: one with Spinnin’ Records for Jersey Club banger “DTL (Drop That Low)”, and another with Dutch mega producer Tiësto’s label Musical Freedom for club hit “Take Me With You”. Since then, the dance track reached the TOP 10 Beatport and has been supported by fellow artists like The Chainsmokers, David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Timmy Trumpet and many more.
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 like JSTJR, 4B, Carnage, Yellow Claw and Baauer.
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.”
In 2021, the DJ Eva Shaw asked Kodat to remix her single “Pop Out. The remix became the official soundtrack of the horror movie “Dreamcatcher”. For more of the hottest & freshest in new electronic dance music and EDM news visit our ‘News’ page and connect with Soundrive Music on social media.
