Cheat Codes isn’t just the musical union of Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell and Kevin Ford – it’s also a mantra. The members of the electronic dance music outfit may have arguably figured out the secret to life – or at least a way to jump right to the good part. The group recently released the track “Feels Great,” which is the follow-up to Cheat Codes’ U.S. smash hit song “No Promises” featuring Demi Lovato, which is climbing the charts. The group’s single – their first via 300 Entertainment – has reached double 2X Platinum status globally with over 433 million cumulative streams, and has just surpassed 1 million sales equivalents in North America.
