Again, I can’t express how much this Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania producer has me excited about my own new project. Right now, Bus Crates 16 Bit Ensemble is one of the only producers I’m working with and embodies so much soul and raw hip-hop. Influences starting at Q-tip (ATCQ) and ending at Chick Corea should let you know that he isn’t a newbie when it comes to production. Check out these remixes of J-Live “Listening”, De La Soul “The Bizness”, and Tom’s Diner and let me know what you feel about them. I always like turning on a new producer that’s under the radar to my BLS family.
