Dream team: Martin Jensen teams up with Cheat Codes and Theresa Rex on a brand new fantastic single “Running”
The musical synergy from the collective artists on the collaboration is palpable as “Running” ignites into a primed dancefloor player. Addictive and memorable, thanks to warm piano tones and Theresa Rex’s vocal, which is snappy and is striking from the first listen.
Cheat Codes shares, “We are excited to kick off 2022 with ‘Running’ alongside our friends Martin and Theresa – we wanted to bring as much positivity and vibrance into the production and accomplish something anthemic! We hope everyone had a Happy New Year and are ready to hit the ground RUNNING in 2022.”
A formula has seen them excel in the streaming world, clocking in over 6 billion total streams, amounting to them being one of the “Top 200 Most Listened To Artists in the World”. The LA-based trio that consists of Kevin Ford, Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell has also collaborated with a string of high-profile artists that include Afrojack, Wiz Khalifa, Travis Barker, Tove Styrke, and Demi Lovato.
On the collaboration, Theresa Rex says, “It was so special working with Martin and the whole team again. It has been a moment since ‘Solo Dance’ came out, but I think that ‘Running’ is the perfect follow up and adding Cheat Codes to the mix has made it pure magic.”
Theresa Rex is the voice behind numerous hits, working with great artists like Jonas Blue, Alle Farben, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. However, perhaps her most significant success came in her team up with Martin Jensen on the wildly popular “Solo Dance,” Martin’s breakthrough single, which stands at over 653 million streams on Spotify alone.
