Album Notes
Basa is like a sponge bath, or like wearing a leisure suit. Its deja vu.
Eric Corbett and Darrell Smith have been exploring the space between jazz,
pop, electro, and soul; trying to discover a fresh take. The strong narratives
gravitate toward stories of love. From the frustrated love that never quite
works out in "touche", to the hopeful story of love being enough in "starlight";
the thoughts are witty and deeper than they appear at first glance. Each
listen reveals another layer of tone and thought. The approach is sensual but
not sexual, intelligent but not intellectual, hip but not trendy, future and retro
at the same time. Textures of tone wash over each expression and
moment. The band is deep rooted in jazz, but shares a love for old school
funk and soul, that euro electro sound, and urban rhythms and beats. Basa's
hope is to be the soundtrack for the best times of your life.
Serve chilled and enjoy.

Its what the nightlife in big cities is all about.
Perfect song(s) to play in the car when you and your crew are headed to the next spot. Its what the nightlife in big cities is all about.


A bit of Deja-vu with some loungey Sunday drive space-jazz
While it’s hard to easily define or categorize the Basa sound, their groove is somehow instantly familiar…

There’s almost a sense of Deja-vu with the loungey Sunday drive space-jazz that these cats lay down. Fascinating though easily convoluted spaces between pop, jazz, electro, and soul are effortlessly navigated by Eric Corbett and Nappy D with consistently classic and classification defying results. Full of simple clear melodies and songwriting that comes from a tradition as old as Motown, this is definitely music informed by the past, but there’s no lack of innovation to be found in the genius EP: Edit. Tired themes, like love being all you need, sound fresh once again through Basa’s take on Starlight and unrequited love gets the lush treatment with Touche. As with all good music, words could never convey the beauty of the deliciously sublime so get yourself to Cloud_09 and bathe yourself in the warm glow that is good music.

Basa is the music for the best Saturday of your life.
It's the perfect pick-me-up for early Saturday night....
great going out music.... great for the girls to apply their make up to....
great for the boys to choose their favourite shirts for the night ahead....
great for the soundtrack to the evening itself.... in the pre-bar, the club,
the taxi, the car.... great for coming home to... to relax and chill....
for chatting with friends.... and dancing with friends.... and then, if you
meet that special person, or already have that special person in your
arms or under your spell.... to do the :::wild::: thing before breakfast.
Starlight, Cloud09 et all.... bellissimo. Basa is the music for the best
Saturday of your life.
