Basic Soul Unit has been steadily making his mark in underground electronic music circles since his first release in 2003. Stuart grew up listening to Torontoâs college radio stations and attended after hours parties playing underground house music.
He has released and remixed music on respected labels such as Dolly, Philpot, Mathematics, Mule Electronic, Versatile, Ostgut Ton, CrÃ©me Organization & New Kanada. 2012 promises to be an exciting year for Basic Soul Unit as it will see the release of his first long player on Chicagoâs Still Music as well as an ep on Boddikaâs Nonplus+ label. As with his productions, Stuart’s strength as a DJ is his versatility.
Depending on the night and the crowd, he can throw down melodic techno, heavy jacking sounds, deep house, disco, and often a combination of these. Stuartâs journey as a DJ has taken him to Berlin (Panorama Bar), Tokyo (Yellow, Loop, Womb), Barcelona, Madrid, Oslo, Glasgow, St Petersburg, New York & more.
