Now Available! BusCrates 16-Bit Ensemble - Debut 4-song 7" EP

Diapason: HSOC-01
Artist: BusCrates 16-Bit Ensemble
Title: S/T 4-Song EP
Format: 7inch

These MP3s are for preview purposes only. They are 192kbps 30second clips of longer songs. The intent of this label is to promote and advance vinyl records. You cannot experience the true power of the music through these truncated bits of ether. The songs were precisely produced & mixed by Buscrates, and then expertly mastered directly to metal stampers and pressed to clean, thick vinyl for loud hi-fi stereo playback. The record is fitted with fully-designed labels and lovingly packaged in full-color, hand-cut, hand-assembled, envelope covers. If you are intrigued by these samples, please purchase the full, physical release, available at and other respected dealers of actual music.

A1 - No. 10 (Moogies Discovery)

A2 - Broken Pencils

B1 - Jazzy Seasons

B2 - Frozen Extremities

A Tiny Bit Of The Process

Cutting down the cover into the final format:

Pasting down the envelope:

An early shot of BusCrates setting off the dancefloor at the release celebration. It got packed and sweaty up in the Shadow Lounge because Crates & SMI knocked it OUT!

We're just waiting for Mr. Mailman to deliver the records in the next couple of days and then WE ARE TAKING OVER!
