WHERE You can catch him this Saturday (May 10) at Arthurs (501 College), as part of Vintage: A Brand New Bag, opening up for Detroit icon Alton Miller. He’ll play the Footprints sixth anniversary party at the El Mocambo (464 Spadina), opening up for Bobbito Garcia (aka DJ Cucumberslice), on May 31. Also, on June 6 he’ll be at the Rivoli (332 Queen West), opening up for Jerome Derradji. If you happen to be in Boston on May 17, you can check him out at Rise.
WHAT When he’s spinning as Basic Soul Unit, expect “soulful but jacking deep house, techno and disco classics.” When billed as DJ Stuart, it’s all about the jazz, funk, soul, Afrobeat, Latin and reggae.
WHY “Listening to community radio when I was a kid: Dave’s Dance Music on Saturday and Ron Nelson’s show on Sunday.“
