Meet Canadian/Austrian Electropop/EDM DJ, Producer, Songwriter and Artist Velvet Code.
Velvet Code, signed to AMG/Sony Music Entertainment, is an Award Winning Electropop/EDM DJ, Producer, Songwriter and Artist known for his heavy 80’s musical influences and addictive dance floor tracks. A fixture on the Music Week and Billboard Dance and Club charts, Velvet Code has collaborated with industry legend Wendy Starland (the woman responsible for developing and discovering Lady Gaga), on his upcoming sophomore album “Dreamer” which was released earlier this year.
Velvet Code’s influences include Avicii, Depeche Mode, Erasure, and Lady Gaga. His music can be described as a modern take on 1980’s pop with heavy influences of electropop and EDM (electronic dance music), most notably the sub-genres of EDM known as trance and progressive house.
When Velvet Code was created in NYC, he quickly gained notoriety by touring with Mindless Self Indulgence. Legendary Producer Mark Saunders (Shiny Toy Guns, Erasure, The Cure) co-produced his synth-infused pop debut album Black Blue Blind which quickly garnered accolades from the likes of Perez Hilton, Arjan Writes, EQ Music and Larry Flick from Sirius XM Radio. Velvet received the plaudit of “Dance/Electronica – Song of the Year” at the 8th Annual Independent Music Awards for the hit song “Say You Love Me”.
Velvet Code relocated to London where he released "Get Outta My House" which spent 10 weeks on UK's Music Week Upfront Club Charts and peaked at #3.
Velvet Code’s comeback single in 2018, "Break The Silence", has garnered over a million views on YouTube, and 300,000 streams on Spotify and Apple Music. He was a guest on Canada's top news channel, CP24, as well as eTalk and iHeartRadio Canada, Velvet has performed on CTV's Morning Live, Global TV’s Morning Show, and Breakfast Television.
“MaryOffered Ladybugs and Love Yous” is the second single off the “Dreamer” album and that song is currently charting at #27 on Billboard and over 200,000 streams. The official video will be released later this month.
It all started when...
It was a dark and dreary day in New York City in 2005, when Wendy Starland met up with Velvet, a new budding singer from Toronto Canada. Velvet had just had his heart broken by a dancer who, the previous night had used those three words we all want to hear when we’re with someone special. Despite how hard it was to talk about this, Velvet wanted to use the writing session as therapy, and so they began to write. This is how “Say You Love Me” was formed. “Say You Love Me” was his first single from “Black. Blue. Blind.”
