The First Shift

by Basic Soul Unit / Eddie Niguel

supported by


The Midnight Shift label debuts with a daring pairing of the emerging and established in The First Shift EP, featuring Singaporean Eddie Niguel with Torontonian Basic Soul Unit aka Stuart Li. Together, they present a crisp and compelling release statement that pushes a new trajectory in the house and techno genres. Get on the Shift.

Torontonian Basic Soul Unit adds his distinctive flavour to the pairing with ‘Black Ice’ and ‘Late Night Shift’. The former is a precipitous icy traipse that bursts into full hailstorm and bloom, while the latter is a dubby afterhours peaktime shuffle paired with sweet melody. Carefully crafted to perfection, these are further winners from the man also known as Stuart Li.

Emerging Singaporean artist Eddie Niguel presents ‘Paths’, a controlled burner that gives out just a teasing hint of its glory underneath. Showing further mettle, his next track ‘Absolute’ is an italo-tinged number set to be a future earworm hit with crossover potential for multiple dancefloor styles.
