The first of his full-length Container releases not be called LP, the title SCRAMBLERS refers to both a Rhode Island diner that Schofield used to visit with his father and Baltimore slang for a form of raw heroin. “The juxtaposition between these two Scramblers is a great one”, explains the producer. “I wanted to pay homage to a nice name that lends itself to both depraved and wholesome contexts and do my part to carry on the tradition.”
Recorded, mixed and mastered all in a single day using a minimal setup that includes a Roland MC-909, a four-track portastudio and a variety of effects pedals, the new album’s eight tracks developed from Schofield’s intense live performances.
