TUNE Codewalkers - Roadman
Cardiff's Codewalkers return with their brand new single 'Roadman'
After being selected for this years BBC Horizons project, figureheaded by BBC Presenter Bethan Elfyn, Codewalkers find themselves with more momentum than ever.
Cardiff-based brothers: Producer, Ben Dabson and Guitarist, Dafydd Dabson, have been making noise together since before they could talk. Codewalkers was formed in 2016 when they recruited vocalist Seun Babatola to provide a message to their music. The trio were joined in 2018 by Bassist Chay Lockyer and Drummer Aled Lloyd.
Their music is a mix of rock, rap and reggae. Ambitious in scope and featuring a mix of live and electronic instruments, it moves from catchy reggae hooks to hip-hop grooves. Often drawing on his childhood experiences in Nigeria, lyricist Seun Babatola can cover serious issues in his writing - gender, violence, societal expectations - but the music is always full of life and energy. It makes you dance, it makes you think.
