Cheat Codes are Hellraisers: L.A.-based electronic trio Cheat Codes is composed of DJs and producers Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell and Kevi (real name Kevin Ford). The last couple of years have seen them release the Level 1 and Level 2 EPs, but this year finally saw their full length debut — Hellraisers, Pt. 1.

“L.A. in particular, as a scene, I think is great because it always seems to be on the cutting edge as far as new music, and you’re going to hear it first,” Russell told this writer last year. “That’s why we live in L.A., because we want to be able to work with new, upcoming songwriters or artists, or even just fashion as far as being inspired by different visual artists. So I think creatively in general, L.A. is a very inspiring place to be.

On Saturday Cheat Codes performs a long-awaited set at the Academy, and it promises to be a special event.

Cheat Codes are Hellraisers: The event takes place at 10 p.m. on Saturday, July 17 at the Academy LA.
