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.
If you been to TURRBOTAX® in the past year you’ve doubtless heard us rinse “Nobody Else.” Now it’s finally arriving via our brothers at Icee Hot with killer remixes from TURRBO Alumni Ghosts on Tape and (!!!) Robert Hood!
It’s not out until April 15, but in the meantime you can listen to a preview and check out what Little White Earbuds has to say about it.
