Although a relative newcomer to the contemporary techno scene, Mahk Rumbae – the British born, Vienna based producer behind Codex Empire – has been creating challenging experimental electronic music for over 25 years working as one half of industrial/ experimental band Konstruktivists as well as a raft of varied solo and side-projects. Combining this background in dark electronic music with heavy rhythmic elements makes Codex Empire an intense and simultaneously danceable experience both live and on record.
Appearing only as a live act, not as a DJ, Codex Empire has performed in the UK, Germany, Japan, France, Italy, Holland, Belgium, Austria, Spain, Poland, Switzerland and numerous appearances in Berlin at Berghain, Arena Club, Suicide Circus and Boiler Room. Codex Empire has released well received EPs on aufnahme + wiedergabe and Khemia Records, and have remixed The Soft Moon for their Deeper Remixed LP. Forthcoming releases include EP’s on aufnahme + wiedergabe, Leyla Records and SNTS new label Sacred Court, and a number of remixes on various labels coming in the second half of 2017.
