We are so buzzing, because the project that we are going to introduce you is a lil wonderful masterpiece!

Last year super talented producers Sam Champ (that appeared on our selection D’Angelo Re-Works and Erykah Badu Remixes) and Pittsburgh native Buscrates 16-Bit Ensemble (we recommended an his spectacular track on Beats 4 Breakfast), joined their forces and skills to release a very very stunning and impressive EP under the moniker of Extra Medium with the indie label Record Breakin based in Philadelphia ( the roster includes some scratchtheblock guest artists like Kissey Asplund,Joy Jones,Soia and Anthony Valadez)! Sam and Buscrates recruited some artists like Kansas City producer/trumpeter/singer Miles Bonny ( the man behind the masterpiece Lumberjack Soul and some interesting collaborations for instance the collabo with dutch producers The Pilots),Canadian-born singer Zaki Ibrahim and Nicholas Ryan Gant (we mentioned him for his super-soulful jazzy track with producer Mabanua on A Touch Of Jazzy).

Extra Medium is a dope EP that blew our mind. Sam Champ and Buscrates represent a good chemistry, blending perfectly underground soul and jazzy groove and creating a compelling work..

So scratchers all around the world, from Italy to Us, check out Extra Medium for your own collection and let us know your impressions!!!
