"CodaY! aka "Codai" is the new face of Dance and Electronic Music in the island of Ireland. An up and coming Dj who started out producing with "Dance Ejay" at the ripe age of 8 years old, has not ceased a day without flaring up some new beats. Fresh on the Irish music scene, watch this space for a good deep bass line mixed with an Irish Hidden recipe to make the dance floors bounce." - BEATPORT.COM
"He’s done it all with practically nothing, apart from a passion for music, a lot of talent and a decent computer or two along the way, that is." - DONEGAL DEMOCRAT
I live for the music, I respect music from artists that haven't been commercialised and stand on their own two feet and produce the music they believe.

Haüer is a Dublin-based one man set-up cursed with a weakness for nostalgic 80's music production and synth-based cinematic film scores. His debut EP 'The Infinitesimal' was released in 2013 by American label 'Future City Records' and was described by Goldenplec as "the perfect soundtrack to a sci-fi daydream".
Since then Haüer has played some high profile gigs supporting the likes of Com Truise, Trust and Adeyhawke and played festivals such as Castlepalooza and Hard Working Class Heroes.
His single release 'Helicop' was included in The Guardian's 'Six must-listen new tracks from around the world' in February 2013.
