S.C.R.D. - The Crave
NEW YORK, NY – S.C.R.D. (Sweet Chuck Ravin Dave) officially re-released their fourth studio single, titled “The Crave," the musical, storytelling duo’s first record release on indie record label Trip Digital. S.C.R.D. explains that “The Crave” pushes the boundaries set by traditional genres by drawing inspiration from three primary sources –Hip Hop, Rock and Pop. The resulting combination is a new FUNK ROCK sound with an old skool Hip Hop inspired beat and verse flow, a Rock and Roll style arrangement, chorus execution and orchestration mixed with a Funkadelic vibe and rolling bass-line.
This record is the first entirely written, composed, orchestrated, produced, performed and recorded by the duo, stepping out from under their partner and co-producer Dj Journey, and features only one other performing artist Eddie Eyeball. The storyline once again is easy to follow and is about a one night stand that turns the corner, and the person you went home with goes from rave and sweet to crazy with a case of the crave! New York City causes normal people to do wild and crazy things as they seek to live out their fantasies. Sometimes people hold on to these experiences and keep coming back for more. We call this a case of “The Crave.”
As the sole featured artist on this record, S.C.R.D. once again enlisted the talented 2 Skinnee J’s bassist Eddie Eyeball to lay down the deep and groovy bass-line that drives the rhythm of the record. S.C.R.D. explains that, “we needed to make sure that the bass nailed down the groove of the record, especially when trying to combine so many elements. The bass-line and trumpets are key to moving the song as well as keeping listener interest and accenting the chorus. Really, we just wanted to bump on car systems!”
