We had a chance to sit down with Basic Soul Unit and discuss some hot tips, here’s a lil insight:
TURRBOTAX®: What’s your hometown and tell us one interesting fact about it?
Basic Soul Unit: Toronto, Canada: about 50% of residents were born outside Canada (including myself).
TURRBOTAX®: Whats your favorite record sleeve?
Basic Soul Unit: Gotta go w a Blue Note, maybe Cannonball Adderly’s “Something Else” or Freddie Hubbard “Hub-tones”. Always loved the simplicity of the covers.
TURRBOTAX®: Most embarrassing record in your collection?
Basic Soul Unit: They were a cassette tapes. When I first got to Canada as a kid in 82 I bought Ozzy Osbourne “Bark At the Moon” and Def Leppard “Pyromania”. You know as a kid from Hong Kong, western pop and rock was so cool. Not embarrassing per say (at least for some) but probably unexpected.

It’s mighty hard to believe that it’s been three whole years since we
started TURRBOTAX®, but it’s the doggone truth.
Since 2009 we’ve thrown over 50 parties; hosted over 80 guest DJs, bands
and live performers from all over the world; given away about 5,000 free
beers; and, spent roughly 300 hours with all you lovely, people. Forging
new friendships, strengthening old bonds, dancing till after the lights
come on, banning crying, and not having any kind of cell phone reception
whatsoever– all at what URB declares the “most lauded and eccentric
monthly events in New York”
It’s all been very magical and we are incredibly lucky to have spent the
last three years raving with you all.
This year’s birthday celebration is one of the most stacked lineups we
have ever concocted.
JAM CITY: We are honored to welcome Night Slugs mainstay to New York for
the first time ever. Since we started our party his tunes have always been
heavily in rotation at TURRBOTAX®, so what a fitting guest to join us at
our third birthday.
IKONIKA: It’s also our great pleasure to have over the incredibly
talented,Hyperdub recording artist, Hum + Buzz CEO and all around bad-gyal
in from London for her long overdue first appearance at TURRBOTAX®, we’re
DJ ONEMAN: We’re super stoked to welcome back one of the most accomplished
and talented DJ’s of our era. You may know him from his ultra-hot RinseFM
radio show or remember his legendary appearance with BenUFO last year at
TURRBOTAX®. Hot on the heels of his much lauded FabricLive mix cd, Oneman
will burn down the sound system.
As always our stable of razor sharp resident DJ’s: Contakt, Rem
Koolhaus,Mayster, C-Sick and Space Jam will be throwing down along side
our esteemed guests.
Sad news friends. Unfortunately due to visa issues DJ Spoko will not be
coming to the US this time around and will be unable to perform at our
Birthday Party this Friday.
