Following this EP, a consistent stream of releases ensued, with Decoder contributing to labels such as Bomphcast, Srie Records, and his own imprint, Codec Recordings.

The same year marked the unveiling of his inaugural album, “Monolithic Activity Spectrum,” released under the Spanish label Subsist. Closing out the year, Decoder presented his second album, “Dark Shape,” released on Jeff Mills’ renowned Axis imprint. The momentum carried into the first half of 2022, with Decoder’s “Moro Safa EP” hitting the shelves under the Amsterdam-based label Float Records. Additionally, this period saw the release of his third full-length album, “Plurality Module,” on Subsist, along with a subsequent offering on Float Records titled “Kanavugal.”
