Nearly a year on, and the time has come to unleash their second EP titled

want from your dance music?
‘You & I’ features Cornwellians Backbeat Soundsystem crooning and spitting on
top of a signature Coda backbone, while ‘Ballistics’ maybe short and sweet but
offers the deepest sounding bass that your speakers will fall apart playing.
Ending this incredible record is ‘Loaded’ which boasts an all out glitch groove
fest with a bit of haunting trombone deep in the mix.
Throughout April Coda will embark on their first set of performances in Europe
followed by a full two week UK tour as well as looking forward to a very healthy
