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.
Catch TURRBOTAX® resident Space Jam do her thing at Lunch Beat, a mid-day lunchtime dance party. There will be food and there will be vibes!
