Dominique Young Unique
It doesn't get much better than this. 18 year old Dominique Young Unique is dropping sick bangers dripping with swagger and spitfire rapping just in time for warmer weather and outdoor boomboxes.
Unique dishes out a frenzied, stutter-stepping electro-hop sound that's more kinetic than a neon carnival. And she's definitely one to watch. After performing in March at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, Unique seems positioned to pick up where Tampa freak-rap pioneers Yo Majesty left off. Teamed up with Yo Majesty's producer David Alexander. The pair are currently working on her debut mixtape, 'Domination', due out in May. Alexander brings the beats and the vibe. Unique brings the lyrics and the attitude. It's an electric mix that has racked up innumerable raves:
The Boston Phoenix called her Florida's best new artist. Stereogum called her video for new single 'Show My Ass' "unabashedly catchy and straight-up fun."The Fader called her "the deffest chica from down south since like JJ Fad." After her smash-bang set at SXSW, even Rolling Stone raved about her "indescribable, un-ignorable mix of Miami bass, Neptunes, French house (and) dub-punk."
