Euphoric and effervescent, Cheat Codes have it figured out. Perfectly blending pop and electronic music, the LA based three piece, who attract 22.5 million Spotify listeners a month, seem to know something that we don’t know – they’ve figured out the secret to life, or at least a way to jump right to the good part.
Their hit single, “No Promises ft. Demi Lovato” is the song of the summer – with 300+ million cumulative streams, and a performance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon; the song is currently sitting at number 15 on the pop radio charts and has moved over 2 million track equivalents globally to date. The track has been gold certified in Australia, Denmark, Italy, the UK and the US; and has been platinum certified in the Ireland, Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands. Cheat Codes also just released a gorgeous stripped back rendition of the track, which you can hear right here
The group have been busy this summer making appearances at major festivals including Lollapalooza, Tomorrowland and more.
With 1.5 billion streams across DSPs and currently in the Top 30 most streamed artist on Spotify globally, the three piece recently collaborated with David Guetta and Robin Schulz with the track, “Shed A Light”; and just released the new track, “Sober” ft. Nicky Romero. Their remix of Maggie Lindemann’s “Pretty Girl” with CADE has been streamed over 260 million times and has just been certified gold and platinum in over 10 countries including just recently, the U.K.
Comprised of Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell and Kevin Ford, the group have seen a meteoric rise since they first formed in LA two years ago. “Matt and I met like 5 years ago, and we lived together a few different times since then,” Trevor explains. “We never really made music together seriously. But when I moved to LA, Matt and Kevin started to write and we worked on a song together, and that’s when it all happened.”
