DJ/Producer/Graphic Designer Stuart Li. Born in Hong Kong and based in Toronto. Early club music interest started in the late 80’s listening to Toronto college radio stations playing house and hip hop. First taste of club scene in the early 90’s during Toronto’s Warehouse days with DJ’s playing New York, Chicago and Detroit based house music. Working at Cosmo’s Records (run by Movement crew’s Aki) during the late 90’s and diggin’ into the crates lead interests into disco, jazz, soul, funk, latin, brasilian, etc. Started Djing various styles at various lounges, bars and clubs.
Started producing in 2003 with first release “Basic Soul” as Basic Soul Unit moniker on Iwanai doing deep house and techno influenced by that early Chicago and Detroit sound (with tinges of all the other aforementioned influences). Subsequently have released music on Ostgut Ton, Philpot, Left Of The Dial, Versatile, Mule Electronic, Mathematics Recordings & Creme Organization.
Basic Soul Unit’s DJ sets run into deep house and techno territory (but with a good measure of soul, disco, broken and classics thrown in).
