BASIC SOUL UNIT - Tunnels (Mule Electronic Japan) Comentários: After his nice releases for Versatile, Stuart Li aka Basic Soul Unit unleashes a new single on Mule. His sound is always deep and hypnotic, reminiscent of the classic techno sound. "Dancing in my mind" is a beautiful mid tempo house track with strings & piano. The title track "Tunnels" is 90s style classic electro sound while Sebo K's remix is more on a deep house tip, a huge tracks for the floors! Stuart Li aka Basic Soul Unit was born in Hong Kong, China and raised in Toronto, Canada. His interest in club music started as a teenager in the late 80's listening to Toronto's independent radio stations and hanging out in the multicultural city's thriving after hours warehouse parties where DJ's were playing New York, Chicago and Detroit based house music. Working at Cosmos Records store during the late 90's led Stuart to dig further into disco, jazz, soul, funk, Latin, Brazilian. During the late 90's, Stuart started Djing various musical styles at various lounges, bars and clubs in Toronto. With this wide spectrum of interest in music, Stuart's strength as a DJ is his versatility. Depending on the night and the crowd, he can throw down Detroit influenced techno, Jacking Chicago style sounds, Soulful NYC house, minimal European tracks, disco, jazz, funk, Latin, Brazilian, broken beat and sometimes even a combination of all these. Currently, Stuart is resident (alongside Patrick Paredes & Jason Ulrich) at the house & techno based "Vintage!" Saturday nights at TOI Bar in Toronto, as well as a jazz, funk & crossover monthly event called "Footprints" (with Jason Palma & General Eclectic). His travels have taken him to various spots like Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, San Francisco, Frankfurt and Montreal. Stuart started producing as Basic Soul Unit in 2003 with his first song "Basic Soul" on Toronto's Iwanai Music. As with his Djing style, Stuart's music can swing from lush and soulful Detroit inspired numbers to jacking minimal beats (all with hints of above). in loop 23 [Para Ouvir/Samples]
