Cheat Codes & MacKenzie Porter Team Up for New Song “One Night Left”
- Los Angeles-based DJ trio Cheat Codes, consisting of Kevin Ford, Trevor Dahl and Matthew Russell, joined forces with Canadian country music singer-songwriter MacKenzie Porter to release a new song “One Night Left” on November 18, 2022.
This marks the first collaboration between Cheat Codes and MacKenzie Porter.
The song is taken from their upcoming fourth studio album “One Night in Nashville”, which is set to be released on January 27, 2023.
It was written by Kevin Ford, Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell, and MacKenzie Porter. Produced by Cheat Codes.
The track is the third single off of the new album, following “I Remember” with Russell Dickerson and “Lose You” with Jimmie Allen.
Cheat Codes said, “MacKenzie had written the idea and we really wanted to try blending it with Trevor's vocals for more of a call and response feel. Getting to add two different perspectives to the idea of what our 'One Night Left' would be like really rounded out the song, and the combination of Trevor's and MacKenzie's vocals sound so good together.”
MacKenzie Porter said, “I couldn't wait for this song to drop! We wrote it at my friend's lake house over a year ago and I knew it was special then. I am such a fan of Cheat Codes; the guys are so talented and also just the kindest dudes. It's been so much fun collaborating with them and I'm so excited for everyone to hear it.”
- Cheat Codes worked with 11 country music artists on the new album after a 38-song album trilogy.
Trevor Dahl said, “We have been country fans since we were little kids. I guess we have always been huge country fans. And as Cheat Codes, what we always aim to do is explore different types of music and genres, and work with different types of artists.”
Kevin Ford told Inquirer about Nashville in an interview, “I went there last year around January and I fell in love with the place. We were also there during the summer, a couple of months ago, to finish up the album and hang out with our collaborators. It's a different culture and lifestyle there, compared to Los Angeles, Las Vegas or Portlandsay.”
He continued, “It's really cool because in Nashville you can go down Broadway Street and there's always live music. People are playing music all the time. There's a dude playing a guitar in every restaurant. A lot of music folk out there were really friendly. I just feel like everyone there was genuine and friendly.”
