Producers and musicians have always been stuck in the strangest places trying to make a beat or compose an album. Whether it be a grimy basement, a lonely room, or an overflow- ing garage, you have to make it wherever you can. This base- ment soul design is about that experience, creating music as an underground producer or an unknown musician in the direst of circumstances. Everyone knows that some of the best music made has been done when its just for the love of the music, not necessarily tied to the biggest studio and the flashiest produc- er. Which is why music lovers and collectors are always seeking out those first recordings of an artist as they tend to have that “sound” that evokes that raw soul and power.
