Seen as a frontrunner in the neo-French Touch (or “Fresh Touch”) scene, sitting amongst the likes of Polo & Pan, Folamour and Kid Francescoli, S+C+A+R+R – the alter ego of accomplished artist and producer Dan Levy of The Dø – releases long-awaited body of work titled ‘Cross Out’ EP with which he heads up with the indefatigable ‘Never Give Up’ and accompanying video.
The past year has been eventful for S+C+A+R+R, with his viral single and partnered visual for ‘The Rest Of My Days’ amassing 3 million views on YouTube, 2.6 million streams and later a remix from dance pop behemoth Galantis.
In addition, his music for the Oscar-nominated animation ‘I Lost My Body’ won the César Award for Best Original Score, and Drake’s ‘Toosie Slide’ walked so that S+C+A+R+R’s borderline perfect take could run, link here.
