JayKode is the moniker of Joey Khodanian, a Los Angeles-based EDM producer who fuses classical-inspired melodies with bombastic trap, dubstep and electro-house beats, dubbing his sound "classical bass." He began studying piano at age seven before taking up guitar as a teenager, then interested in metal and hardcore. After getting into hip-hop and electronic music, he started developing his style of aggressive yet dreamy bass music. His track "The Gregorian Life" was released by Dirt, Lies & Audio Black in 2012. Since then, he began appearing on dubstep and trap compilations, and he remixed songs by Beyoncé, A-Trak, Galantis and others. His tracks were played by well-known DJs such as Diplo, Skrillex, DJ Snake and others. Throughout 2015 and 2016, numerous Jaykode singles were released by labels like Elysian Records, Unborn Records and Borgore's Buygore. He also collaborated with Party Thieves on a track called "Origin" and remixed The Chainsmokers' "Closer."
