Since 2014, Codex Empire has built an international reputation for dark and intense techno productions and live shows.
Mahk Rumbae – the British born, Vienna based producer behind Codex Empire – has been creating challenging experimental electronic music for more than 30 years working as one half of industrial/experimental band Konstruktivists as well as a number of varied solo and side-projects. Combining this background in dark electronic music with heavy rhythmic elements makes Codex Empire an intense and simultaneously danceable experience both live and on record.
Codex Empire has performed over 100 live shows in England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Japan, France, Italy, Holland, Belgium, Russia, Austria, Spain, Poland, Switzerland, Sweden, Ukraine, Georgia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Greece, Lithuania and numerous appearances in Berlin at Berghain, Tresor, Arena Club, Suicide Circus and Boiler Room.
After releasing several well received EPs on aufnahme + wiedergabe, HORO, Sacred Court and Khemia Records, as well as numerous remixes and appearances on V/A compilations, Codex Empire released his full-length debut album ‘Slow Erosion’ in February 2019 on aufnahme + wiedergabe.
