TD is excited for this opportunity and looks forward to inspiring new sounds and production from new audiences.

Saturday Night, Saturday Right!

NEW YORK, NY - Friday, January 19, 2018 - Gramercy production duo S.C.R.D. released their highly anticipated, club-crossover banger records, titled “Saturday Right,” featuring Sweet Chuck and A$ton Dollar$ trading bars on verses and hooks.

This hypnotic, melodic and catchy composition is tightly crafted by DJ Journey, with lowend support from American Jazz Bassist, James Genus (SNL/Herbie Hancock) who once again delivers his signature groovelines. Meanwhile, the whimsical rhythmic riffs of Daniel Picciotto’s Gibson guitar, playfully dance along the topline in the background. Both tease the melody and then prominently strut across the bridge before sweeping listeners back into a final chorus and breakdown.

This single release is the first collaboration between S.C.R.D. and A$ton Dollar$ who originally met after multiple back to back studio sessions over the past couple of years. Producer/Engineer Rich Ahee (Shelter Island Sound) was the common denominator and mutual engineer between the two groups.  Eventually dots were linked and everyone came together to make this record.

While the record was conceived, written and recorded over a couple of days at Shelter Island Studio on April, 20th, 2016, the final record was actually mixed months later at Lounge Studios / Vanilla Sky, and didn’t get mastered until late last 2017 by Mikaelin ‘Blue’ BlueSpruce.

"From then, until now, many things have happened in our worlds’ and the world around us. And we’re just blessed to be able to make music that makes people feel something, and in this case it’s a warm, loving, family and friends vibe ‘n good times. Especially after last year, and just in time for the Spring and Summer!" - S.C.R.D.

Saturday Right is available across global retailers Amazon, Google Play, and across streaming platforms Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal.  Saturday Right is a Hip Hop genre, danceable track that grooves at 105 BPM, with remixes expected during spring and summer, be released by Flourish$Prosper Music Group.

S.C.R.D.

Artist production duo, Sweet Chuck Ravin Dave write, produce and perform music, videos and content under Trip Digital, Inc. The two met in Gramercy, New York City during the fall of 2013, and by 2014 began writing and recording at the 19th street studio.
On June 30, 2015 the duo released their first single titled “Someday.” Over the past two years S.C.R.D.have released four additional singles, two videos and have executive produced over twenty more records that will release in 2018. “Saturday Right” is the first release of 2018.
S.C.R.D. is named after Sweet Chuck and Ravin Dave, the two principal members of the group. Together they infuse old skool beats, live instrumentation and witty, humorous and slightly satirically lude lyrics to take fans on a journey through heartbreaks with an ebullience for life and the thirst for adventure. Their collaboration between each other, thrives off co-collaborating with local musicians, friends and fans they lure into their musical tsunami, which helps drive their artistic creativity to new heights.

What's your "Dirty Whine"? - 2017

Friday, December 15, 2017 - Brooklyn, New York - Young MG Louis VIV, aka KingSaySay, Bedford-Stuyvesant born artist, rapper and emcee released his first official single record titled, "Dirty Whine" on iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon Music and Spotify. This Dancehall inspired Hip Hop track features local artist Anna Awe on the hook and S.C.R.D.'s Ravin Dave on composition and production.

The topic of this record, one considered highly sensitive, misogynistic and sexist by some listeners, is actually a dichotic reflection of the current environment. One the artist is living himself. Perhaps a case of greater good versus lesser evil, or rather just plain ego. Regardless, the sonic composition, lyrics and subject matter seem to divide audiences stuck on the fence of robbing peter in order to pay paul. 

Young MG, one of Brooklyn's many eighties baby's on the cusp of the 90's was born into Hip Hop music's golden years, which explains his study, articulation and knowledge of the genre. And his story, not unlike some of those who preceded him may sound familiar. At the young age of twelve, Young MG and his brother were forced out on the streets. The last decade and a half have been a struggle with far and few opportunities to follow his dreams, share a story or stay out of trouble.

In early February, 2017, Young MG secured a live performance spot in an upscale fundraiser, for The Nylon Project, who intention is to help bring awareness to homelessness. A press article on the event and cause written by, Hilary George-Parkin, of racked.com caught up with Young MG following his performance and shared this:

Young MG’s struggles aren’t quite behind him yet; I talk to him at the end of the night, after the last performer has packed up and the DJ is entreating the dwindling crowd to dance to a steady stream of Chris Brown and Bruno Mars. He wears a yellow hoodie and sweatpants and a backwards Yankees fitted. “I pulled up to show some love for the homeless people, because I too went through the homelessness and I'm still facing it,” he says.

I have felonies, I'm a project kid, I've lived a hard life,” he explains, about three inches from my ear so I can hear over the music. “It's not my fault, it's the cards that I was dealt. But if you don't have a job, then it's hard to take care of yourself, to provide, to live your dreams. Everything costs money, and nobody's going to give it to you. You have to pay to get your way up, and then people will help you up.” At some point, I realize it’s the first story of homelessness I’ve heard all night. A minute later, though, he’s moved on. “Look me up on Facebook,” he says, and when I do, I see a few dozen photos and videos from the night — selfies, videos, shot after shot of Milian, and the requisite red carpet photos, though this time, without a cardboard sign in sight.

Since then, Young MG has been hard at work in the studio writing, rehearsing and performing a combination of new material, freestyles and remixes. In 2016, Young MG linked with S.C.R.D., the production crew out of Gramercy Park, in Manhattan, currently signed under Trip Digital, Inc. The unlikely combination took months to build trust and loyalty, and then eventually net out in original beats, compositions and songs that stemmed from the combination of different worlds, and walks of life. 

Bed-Stuy, has been made known most notably in music, specifically Hip Hop, over the past quarter century by Biggie (The Notorious BIG), along with the likes of Jay-Z (Marcy Projects), Fabolous (Brevoort Houses) Mos Def (Lafayette Gardens) Maino (Nostrand and Gates), Smif-n-Wessun (Brownsville Houses), Lil Kim (Lafayette Ave), and many others. More recently, Bed-Stuy is one of Brooklyn's fastest, "up-and-coming" neighborhoods, falling victim to the gentrifying sweep of ridding the old, and paving the way for the new. 

 

 

"Trap Heads, Nope! This is Real Hip Hop!"

Nick Hews is an artist originating from a Denver suburb and later hailing from Brooklyn, NY and Los Angeles. Coming from a town that prioritized country music, drugs, and quiet living, Hews originally turned to Hip Hop as an outlet. While Hews is typically an introvert, the “OtherSelf” mixtape series is an expression of his inner most thoughts on popular industry beats.

The original songs produced by DJ Journey in this volume are a sneak peak at what’s to come in Hews 2018 album “Matthews:17” which will be solely produced by DJ Journey of Trip Digital.

“LIFE IS LIKE A MOVIE, BUT THERE’S MORE TO LIVING”

LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK - On Friday, October 13, 2017 - Native West Islip rapper and songwriter KING MYERS officially releases the record titled “WICKED”, under Flourish$Prosper with distribution through Empi.re across download outlets including iTunes, as well as streaming platforms including Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music.

WICKED is the first studio single of a series, in collaboration with production partner Trip Digital, founder Dj Journey. A boomin, uptempo 808 drops the hard rugged backbeat in between rolling trap hats laying the foundation for synth stabs that echo the struggles and rejoice with the rewards. WICKED is not only an anthem, it’s a cross country exploration led by KING MYERS in his global conquest through of underground Hip Hop. King’s lyrical partner in crime on the split track features Jamo, hailing from London and host of this collaborative endeavour. This record was recorded at Nu:Gen Studios in June, 2017.

kingmyers.jpg

WICKED is not just a record with a music video shot by Pacman TV, within two hours of its recording. Rather, packed beneath the music and lyrics is a much deeper meaning filled with behind the scenes sub-storylines between two rappers, and a composer, all from different walks of life. A meaning that reveals how the power of music, and social media brought different walks of live together to write, produce, record and shoot a project over a couple of days in London. No doubt, music brings people and artists together. At the right place, and the right time, magic can happen. This record is made of magic, only fit for a King!

King Myers’ track record reveals no shortage of previous projects that resulted in “King-like” outcomes for the artist. In february of 2017, King successfully pulled off one of hip-hop's greatest publicity stunts. He tricked the media into believing that he was a new signee to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music record label, to release his Donald Trump diss track "propaganda" in which he credited Kanye West as the producer. This caused king to be featured and mentioned on major media outlets like cnn, fox news, tmz, xxl magazine, and hiphopdx.

“EVERYTHING THAT’S GOLD, NEVER GROWS”

ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA - On Friday, September 22, 2017 - Native Cali rapper and songwriter Khzzari officially released the record titled “Jazz Kat”, through the label Flourish$Prosper with distribution through Empi.re across download outlets including iTunes, as well as streaming platforms including Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music.

Jazz Kat  is the first studio single of a series, in collaboration with production partner Trip Digital, founder Dj Journey. A jazzy trumpet riff, followed by a piano lick sets the bluesy tone of this post-breakup contemplative Hip Hop record on which Khzzari reflects on his ex-girlfriend. Set to a modern 90’s style beat, produced by Dj Journey, listeners are nostalgically reminded of not only of the storytelling qualities found in old school, but also perhaps, of an old relationship where after they felt the same as Khzzari does, expressed in his 32 bars of sentiment.

Originally from Newark, New Jersey and after growing up in Orlando, Florida, Khzzari is now based in Orange County. He began writing poetry in middle school, which led him into music in high school. Influenced by his father’s Detroit upbringing and the soulful sounds of Motown, combined with influence from his mother’s Puerto Rican descent,  Khzzari pulls from the best of both worlds, and remains rooted in the Hip Hop sounds he grew up on in the early 2000’s. In his most recent interview on Trip Digital Live, Khzzari explains that,

“As I was growing up I realized that music is poetry, but with rhythm, and music is global. I figured that I could use that to get my message out there.”

“BEEN THERE, DONE THAT!"

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - On Friday, September 15, 2017 - Native rapper and songwriter Dev (Brooklyn) and teammate Nick Hews (Brooklyn/Venice) officially released the record titled “Done That Feat. Dj Journey)”, under Flourish$Prosper with distribution through Empi.re across download outlets including iTunes, as well as streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music.

Dev & Nick Hews - Done That (Feat. Dj Journey) is the first studio single of a series, in collaboration with production partner Trip Digital, founder Dj Journey and executive production duo S.C.R.D.. The melodic, uptempo, New York style beat lends itself well to the writing and flow of New York’s own Dev, who delivers a sharp message pointed at all the people who don’t believe in the grind. Specifically he’s taking shots at the naysayers along the way who try to play you but then want to jump on the bandwagon when you’re hot. Pulling from life experiences, Dev works security at a high-end luxury hotel and nightclub in the off hours between work on a solo album and a collaborative project with writing partner Nick Hews.

While currently in Venice, California, Nick Hews met Dev in New York when both artists were living in Brooklyn, back in 2013. A year later they began writing together and the following year they finalized Done That, in Lounge Studios with a recording on March 15, 2015 under engineer Joseph Angol. From then till now Nick Hews moved out to Los Angeles and then Kuwait, before settling in Venice. Working bicoastal, the future Dev and Hews worked with Mikaelin ‘Blue’ BlueSpruce (Solange) to mix and master their first collaborative release, with future solo and collaborative records coming down the pipes in 2018.

“TAKE THESE HARD TIMES AS LESSONS AND KEEP GOING!”

mame-hope-cover-F.jpg

TOKYO, JAPAN - On Friday, August 11, 2017 - Japanese rapper and songwriter Mame officially releases “HOPE” as a short film and audio single, under Flourish$Prosper with distribution through Empi.re. HOPE is available across download outlets including iTunes, Google Play and Amazon, and streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal. Available via pre-order on August 4, 2017.

Born in 1990, and at the age of twenty, Mame left Japan in order to pursue his dream and went to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. During that time his father became ill. Upon the worsening of his father’s condition, Mame returned home to help take care of him and his family.

“Life was in extremes, up and down when I was pursuing a career as a fashion designer. I was emotionally fucked up, living alone, and trying to reach where I thought I wanted to go.  Life wasn't easy, then I turned back to my country because of my father's illness. At that moment, I definitely hit the rock bottom leaving everything in New York, I had to start a new life. That was hard, and by taking the hard times as lessons, I kept going. That's how I felt when I could be on next level.
The experience made me realize my true passion and deeper dream in music and entertainment. Since then, I have transitioned from fashion designer to artist and have been working on lyrics and production, combining Tokyo flows with New York sounds in collaboration with super producer Dj Journey / Trip Digital Inc. Hope is the first song and music video of my struggles, and is what helped get me through them to now."

“YOU AIN'T EVER EVER EVER, HAD A SOUND LIKE THIS! - W.O.P"

Kris Payne - W.O.P

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - On Friday, July 21, 2017 - Baldwin/Brooklyn rapper and songwriter Kris Payne will officially release the “W.O.P”, under Flourish$Prosper with distribution through Empi.re across download outlets including iTunes, Google Play and Amazon, as well as streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.

Kris Payne - W.O.P is the first studio single of a series, in collaboration with Trip Digital founder Dj Journey and executive production duo Sweet Chuck Ravin Dave (S.C.R.D.). The club and car bumping single features a catchy vocal hook, sax lick and beat produced by Anthony “Tone T1” Fenner. Arranged into four verses of heat, the first of which will arguably rival a young Busta Rhymes or Twista, all three versions (Clean, Explicit and Instrumental) give djs and remixers all the the tools needed to slice, dice or sample this hot summer jam.

Kris Payne is not your average rapper. His flow and lyrics will take you back in time, while his smooth, raw vocal delivery is poetic and wistfully visual. Kris often draws comparisons to the likes of the Notorious BIG, LL Cool J and Dr. Dre, which considering his childhood upbringing, and being a Leo with the same birthday as Chuck D and Professor Griff, may be an indication. Payne grew up in Brooklyn, and then moved out to Baldwin, Long Island for high school.

Kris worked his way into regular rotation on BET’s 106 & Park and then found himself in a cipher with Run DMC. Payne drew the attention of Public Enemy’s Chuck D and The Bomb Squad super producer Keith Shocklee, both local Roosevelt, Long Island natives. Kris invested the past five years into building trust, which led to his mentorship from Hip Hop legends and eventually projects with Common and Rakim. Most importantly, Kris made the transition from playground battle rapper to recording artist now is now poised to set the stage on fire.

Sweet Chuck - Breaking News (Feat. Dj Journey)

Friday, November 4, 2016 - New York City:  Breaking News is a refreshing perspective on an over saturated topic we've all seen time and again this year. Local actor and artist, Charles J. Jugans III., also known as “Sweet Chuck”, finally brings an honest “spin” on current events in “Breaking News.”

Unlike other contemporary music videos, major network news, or late night satire – Breaking News” is a real, unabashed and irreverent sketch , which happens to also be a kick ass song (the first of four singles off his forthcoming album titled, “The Adventures of…” due to release in 2017.

Sweet Chuck features super producer Dj Journey, and directly tackles fundamental philosophical, race, and gender and issues juxtaposed with facts and sources. In order to bring the song to life visually, the unlikely production duo enlisted New York based Rock and Roll photographer, Jason Sheldon and co-founder of S.C.R.D.Ravin Dave as co-directors to shoot and edit the short drama.  

Breaking News actually goes deeper beyond that of a typical music video or even a short film. This video captures individual characters, who are playing the roles of those delivering the news. As a result each character comes to life in an authentic and  vulnerable manner; in the roles where they are not allowed to break character when reporting the worse of news stories.

The music video represents and speaks directly to today's sharing culture, the participants of which often pass along informations and react to content without digging deeper or knowing anything greater than just headlines.

Charles J. Jugans, III. is a professional actor that plays the character of Sweet Chuck, an artist and co-founder of S.C.R.D. In the past, Charles played roles in both film and music videos including:  Alanis Morissette ”Unsent” and “Lucky Days,” directed by Anglica Page, as well as been featured in “Man on the Moon,” “Finding Forrester” and  many commercials. The character of Sweet Chuck is limitless, and fans are able to live vicariously through his character and adventures.

Rhymes with Orange

 

 

DJ JOURNEY RELEASES FIRST ALBUM OF THE YEAR

Rhymes with Orange - Available NOW on iTunes

 

New York, NY (February 10, 2015) - Turntable artist extraordinaire and composer DJ Journey released a unique, surprising, versatile and intriguing instrumental album based on his experience from his Chicago hometown for providing his eclectic style and musical palate.

 

Rhymes with Orange is DJ Journey’s sixth album available on iTunes, and the first in a line of new compositions slated to be delivered throughout the year. What makes this album different than its predecessors is DJ Journey’s open approach, featuring a host of collaborators including, Anna Awe, Ladypills, Ravin Dave, Bill Ray, Mr. MC Clane, The Chicago Family, JAMO Wordart and Ason.

 

Rhymes with Orange is a spinoff of our lives. Orange rhymes with nothing. From DJ Journey’s point-of-view,

“We as artists do not fit into anyone's box. We exist before our time. We create things that don’t necessarily go with the culture mindsets of today. We are a group of individuals that create for the future. Meaning the future of tomorrow, the next minute, the next hour, the next day, the next year.”

 

As the creators of tomorrow, the instrumental album "Rhymes with Orange" represents the fact that these artists’ creations are relative to nothing, now. But will in fact be the inspiration for what will be tomorrow, and when looked back upon in the future. Does Rhymes with Orange represent the future of pop culture? Everyone different in their own way. Every online profile, every outfit, every hairdo, every voice, is different these days, and only time will tell. Until then, download the new album from iTunes for true inspiration from top talent.
