The Pleasure Unit was part of a New York underground movement dubbed AfroPunk in early 2000. Acts like Anti-Pop Consortium, Mike Ladd, and Apollo Heights reflect a downtown scene which is a diversity of intellect anger humor poetry electronica funk along with the ghosts of hard core and punk. These acts are filling a void left by the commercial hip hop backlash. The Pleasure Unit, is the bridge between curtis mayfield and mystical, between radiohead and outkast, between fishbone and the roots. ecclectic as the clash with all the funk sense of Prince, The Pleasure Unit is attracting listeners from a wide demographic.

Brothers, Kareem(El-P, Juggs, etc...) and Jaleel(TV on the Radio, Mike Ladd, etc...), and childhood friend Torbitt(Chin Chin, El-P, Antibalas Afrobeat, Steve Arrington, etc...) represent Louisville, Kentucky; while Tadayuki is a longtime LES scenestar (Ultra Bide, Blonde Redhead, Cibo Matto, Chin Chin, Russell Simins(JSBX), etc) who originally hailed from Japan together they make up The Pleasure Unit.

Being pulled in all directions by the four poles of their influences, which range from rock, soul, hip hop, jazz, punk and psychedelia, the centrifugal force of The Pleasure Unit's music keeps things from spinning out of control.
