Buscrates is a producer, DJ, and record collector from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  He is one-third of boogie funk outfit East Liberty Quarters (with Nice Rec and Grand Ear), and one-half of Extra Medium (with Sam Champ).  Among a wide range of inspirations, his biggest two influences can be found in 80s boogie and 90s Hip-Hop.

His productions vary from drum machine and synth heavy grooves to sample laden, neck snapping MPC sequences. In addition to his vast knowledge of music, he is most recently known for being an analog synthesizer aficionado.  Buscrates has been producing music for 15 years and has released different projects on physical formats since 2009.  His Thrash Flow debut, Home Again is a collection of beats made while living in Atlanta and finished and completed since his return back to his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA.  Purchase Home Again here.
