It is a pleasure to have Toronto-based Basic Soul Unit provide us with the next mix in our exclusive series.
For almost 10 years now he has released a solid stream of quality music on some great labels, including Ostgut Ton, Other Heights and Creme Organization. His most recent release really helped cement the high calibre of material that he has been producing with two stunning tracks for Boddika's NonPlus imprint.
Black Ice - Basic Soul Unit [Midnight Shift]
Born in Hong Kong and growing up in Canada, BSU was immersed in a diverse multi-cultural city which was heavily influenced musically by Europe, NYC, Detroit and Chicago in the late '80s and early '90s. This wide spectrum of sounds is represented well here in the mix which, after a little atmospheric palette cleanser, kicks off with some deep disco vibes and slowly progresses through to deep house and techno.
