On this episode I chat with Pittsburgh music producer and vinyl dj - BusCrates. He's one of my personal hometown favorites, and his music combines elements of hip-hop, synthesizer funk, and disco. He is also an avid user of the live streaming platform, Twitch. He does live streams of his vinyl dj sets and also production streams where he's composing new material.
Find his music on Spotify, Bandcamp, and anywhere else music is available.
In this episode I address some of the responses I got on Instagram when I asked the question, "what is your greatest challenge as a musician or producer?"
