Toronto-based producer and DJ Stuart Li -- known more commonly under the alias of Basic Soul Unit -- is one of the city's most important fixtures in its electronic music scene. While Stuart's creative projects have allowed him to rise through the ranks of the international festival and touring circuit, unlike many other Toronto-based musicians who move overseas when they are able to do so, Stuart has remained true to his roots, continuing to live in Toronto and perform here regularly.
In addition to being a part of Toronto's electronic community for almost two decades, Stuart was a key player in the rise of the monthly jazz & funk crossover event, Footprints, which continues regularly to this day.
"Stuart's music can swing from lush and soulful melodic techno to jacking beats or smokey deep house (with hints of above aforementioned influences). He has released music on respected labels such as Dolly, Philpot, Mathematics, Mule Electronic, Versatile, Ostgut Ton, New Kanada, and Creme Organization." - Resident Advisor
