Award-winning pop trio KARMACODA will be sharing the remix of ‘Make Me The One’ by Peter Tanico (E39) on the 14th of May. The original single is lifted from their upcoming album, Slow Down, Melt and Catch Fire which will be officially released on the 28th of May via Sola Musa Music and has already received support from CLASH Magazine, Hotpress and CelebMix as well as Youtube channel which was featured by MrNiceSounds. Label founder Peter Tanico (of Exit 39 Productions) has spent over 30 years in the music industry, making himself at home in the DJ booth and creating remixes for many well-known artists and bands.
KARMACODA have earned numerous awards over the years, including 3 Davey Awards for their video for ‘Blue’, the Best Dance/Electronica HM award for the International Songwriting Competition and the Best Independent Song from the Independent Music Awards as well as being nominated for the Rome Independent Film Awards. In total, the trio has gained just under 650 000 plays across streaming platforms and have had their creations placed in several film and TV scores.
When seeking inspiration for the original single KARMACODA, turned to the likes of Massive Attack, Radiohead, Frank Ocean and Miles Davis. However, Peter Tanico’s reinterpretation of the song calls to mind the likes of Lane 8, CamelPhat and Kaskade. KARMACODA is composed of Jessica Ford (vocals), founding member Brett Crockett (aka B. on vocals and producer) and Japanese-American multi-instrumentalist Eric Matsuno (bass and other unique elements). B., originally from Chicago, is currently based in San Francisco along with the rest of the band. Jessica spent 10 years living in Nashville, TN, has won several awards, including the Hallman Award from the Tennessee Songwriters Association and wrote 3 award-winning songs, one of which was recorded by Grammy Award winner Linda Davis. As a vocal coach, she has had multiple clients on American Idol and one appearing on The Voice USA this year.
Drawing the single onto a dark dance floor and covering it with renewed electronic touches, Peter Tanico takes ‘Make Me The One’ into a new territory of dance reminiscent of Daft Punk. However, the modern production style and unusual vocals quickly set the track apart and listeners journey into a world of dark romance and unstoppable dance rhythms.
Remixer Peter Tanico (E39) shares his thoughts on the opportunity to rework the single: “Having the opportunity to reimagine this amazing song is like finding the new perfect setting for a diamond”
