LA-based house-pop DJ and production trio Cheat Codes is made up of Kevin Ford, Matthew Russell, and Trevor Dahl. To celebrate the release of their brand new music video the guys graciously agreed to hop on this week for an exclusive takeover of our regular Your EDM’s – Week In Music Spotify playlist with some of their handpicked favorite tunes at the moment.
First, let’s check out the video! “Shed A Light” with Robin Schultz and David Guetta quickly became a worldwide dance hit upon release back in November. The official video is directed by Mario Clement and features a futuristic love story set in space. Backed with superbly rendered visuals and the upbeat song in the background, the video will have you in euphoric tears by the end!
And now onto the playlist! From Gerry Gonza’s Confession release “Bad Bitches” to Florian Picasso’s “Make Up Your Mind” with #1 DJ Martin Garrix to R3HAB’s new single the playlist consists of as much variance by genre as the trio’s stylish outfits. Below are just a couple of quotes from the guys on our favorites out of their favorites for this exclusive Spotify takeover!
“Chemistry” – Steve Void: “We toured with Steve in 2016. He is young and knows the chemistry of the music industry. We are expecting big things.”
“Stamina” – Jordy Dazz: “Stolen off Matt’s workout playlist”
“What You Need” – BAYNK: “This is BAYNK’s latest and biggest track and we think this guy is onto something. We were on tour with him last year and work with one of his friends from New Zealand who is always playing his songs.”
“Icarus” – R3HAB vs. Sketch Remix: “More R3HAB because we are going to do some tracks together.”
“Queen Elizabeth (Attom Remix)” – Cheat Codes: “We love Attom’s work and love remixes. This song was doing well on Hype Machine, so here it is!”
“Sleeping In” – Phil Good: “Phil Good is mostly indie electronic but we think it has a place on this playlist for people who want something a little different. He has 2 exciting new tracks coming out soon that we have had the privilege of listening to pre-release.”
