Joey Khodanian, aka JayKode, has proven time after time a force to be reckoned with, and 2017 is sure to be no different. Between the announcement of his massive 2017 tour, including stops with Rezz, Valentino Khan, and Yellow Claw to lining up stellar release after release, it’s no surprise that JayKode is a must-watch in the New Year. As a classically trained pianist whose hustle is incomparable to many, JayKode has surpassed the dense and oversaturated dance music producer pool with no plans of slowing down. Coining the genre, “Classical Bass”, it’s captivating to see and hear each unique set, where his energy, history, and love for the music seeps through every note. EPIC had the opportunity to sit down with JayKode after his Audio on the Bay set to discuss all things music, and where he expects 2017 to take him.
