There are (at least) two artists with the name Codine.
Essex Breakbeat/Techno producers Howard and Jamie, who released on the Shut Up And Dance label in 1991.
Erik Cronin has been quietly producing under the name Codine since 2000. Influenced heavily by the Detroit electro sounds of Aux 88, Dopplereffekt and the rigid, angular industrial rhythms of Nitzer Ebb, Cronin’s main objective with the Codine project is to synthesize the two similar sonic worlds into a tapestry that is uniquely his own. After several remixes and self released CD releases, Cronin made his live performance debut in 2004.
In 2006 he collaborated with Thinkbox artist Rob Theakston for an installation piece currently on tour in museums and art galleries across the United States and Canada. 2007 beheld Codine’s debut on Detroit’s Blank Artists imprint, with the sleeping giant entitled “Recent Events” and has followed up with subsequent releases that have drawn a reputation for symbolizing the contemporary sound of Detroit Techno. This fall, Codine is releasing his full-length album with Blank Artists featuring remixes from techno stalwarts Derek Plaslaiko, Patrick Russell and Chicago producer, Alex Israel.
