“This tape gave me the chance to create without being beholden to any preconceived ideas of how it should sound. For much of this project, I would make something out of a few samples and then proceed to layer them with analog synthesizers. While not the only synth on deck, the Korg Minilogue played a significant role in creating these tracks. Some were made while living in Atlanta and the others were created back here in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA...hence the title Home Again.”

-Buscrates 16-Bit Ensemble
