New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Multi-platinum, electronic dance music trio CHEAT CODES (comprised of Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell and Kevi Ford) have teamed up with Afrojack
for the huge new track, "Ferrari", taken from their forthcoming EP, "Level 2". The bass-heavy track blends dance and hip hop sensibilities that break into an anthemic chorus, drenched with Cheat Codes signature electronic textures that have seen them become one of the fastest growing pop and dance acts, garnering over 2 billion streams.
The monumental track is over a year in the making- Matt of Cheat Codes explains: "We met up with Afrojack
in the studio over a year ago, we wanted to figure out how we could blend our two sounds into something cohesive. We first heard the drop and knew it was something we could come together on. A lot of the process was back and forth through email sending demos. Gonna have to hit the stage together at some point because the clubs are gonna love this one."
The dance-floor ready anthem is juxtaposed by it's dark lyrical narrative that ultimately tells the tale of a missteps in a relationship. Matt adds, "Ferrari is that moment when you really mess up in a relationship and have to overcompensate to try and make it better"
"Ferrari" follows, "Feeling of Falling," their new single and collaboration with pop sensation KIM PETRAS. The euphoric anthem pairs Cheat Codes' signature sugary electronic hooks with Kim's mesmerizing vocals. The group released a remix bundle of the track, featuring re-works from the likes of Daniel
Quest, Justin Caruso, and Angemi, as well as Steve Aoki
- which is available now. Cheat Codes, who are touring with Steve Aoki
throughout the UK this February, recently remixed Aoki's collaboration with BTS, "Waste It On Me
"Ferrari" comes in the wake of another exciting year for Cheat Codes. The group are on the heels of their track, "Only You
" which featured Little
Mix and its inventive music video featuring TV star, Peyton List. "Only You
" hit #1 at UK radio and received critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, TIME and Rolling Stone. Earlier this year, the group was joined by Fetty Wap
