Gil Masuda has been a staple in the underground Toronto music scene for nearly two decades. Under his ‘Astro’ guise he played host / Dj with the renowned Circle Research Crew during their run on CKLN. The insanity that accompanied the 2-6am slot brought out the best in Gil’s future sonic adventures. With over 100 releases under Circle Research (including 3 LPs) Gil is no newbie to the game. However it’s his new project with Circle Research compadre Nik T as well as Modern Funk junkie Tyler Smith, that has the heads buzzing. Check the Precious Lo’s take on Modern Funk / Boogie with their debut EP. And in the meanwhile, listen as Gil works the one’s and two’s with an all vinyl Love Handle set of funky sooky sooky.
