Recognized by Traxsource consecutive years on their yearly “Artist for the Year of 2016” & “Artist for the Year of 2017” list.

Featured on 2018 #8 album “Celestial” (“Bruthas”) and releasing the 2018 hit This Is What We Do Underground that stayed on Traxsource's various genre charts (House/Soulful) for almost 4 months including appearing on 100 + DJ charts as well in the top 20 Soulful records for 2 months in 2018 with TIWWDU on DJ Spen & Thommy Davis label, the success inspired two separate release (Quantize & Unquantize Recordings).

Scheduled in January are a new release on Groove Odyssey with hot producer DJ Mark Francis. And #1 rank DJ Louie Vega's Soul Mission "Deep Belief" with Brutha Basil will be available on every digital platform. And a soon coming release with another Top 3 DJ/Producer (other than any mention prior) that will ROCK the world because of it's TRUTH.

In addition a MONSTER release planned for early January 2019 with a music pioneer and legend that will surely confirm, Brutha Basil lets his artistry confirm what he does, that's why 30 years later he's still making hits. in addition Brutha Basil's weekly show on the popular #MyHaus #BruthaBasil every Monday internationally.

Brutha Basil made it a long standing practice, not to be distracted by confirmation of any sorts. Because it's the dance floor and people that make the music authentic, learning this from his idol Prince Rogers Nelson whom he even made a track in honor of (right here on Traxsource "Purple To The People).

The industry is what it is, but in the long run not trends or especially charts, are remembered. That's why they change every single week, especially in this era. And quite ironically...
Brutha Basil remains prominent in a now forever changing landscape of this new music scene. And like fine wine, some things get better in time.

January 2019 will solidify that ASAP.
