DJ Fresh Vs. Diplo – “Earthquake” (Feat. Dominique Young Unique) Video

The fizzy dance-rap track “Earthquake” is a collaboration between Diplo and DJ Fresh — the British drum & bass one, not the producer of evocative and ’80s-reminiscent Bay Area cult-rap — and it features the Florida party-rapper Dominique Young Unique. It’s the first single from Fresh’s debut solo album, which is coming next year, but… More »

Download Dominique Young Unique Stupid Pretty Mixtape

Earlier this year, the Floridian party-rapper Dominique Young Unique dropped her Glamorous Touch mixtape, and now she’s back with another one. Stupid Pretty is just eight songs and about 20 minutes, but its tempo pretty much never lets up. One song gives a house-music makeover to Waka Flocka Flame’s “O Let’s Do It” beat, and… More »

Dominique Young Unique Glamorous Touch Mixtape

Dominique Young Unique just released her new mixtape, Glamorous Touch — her last was 2010’s Domination. After asking “Where the fuck I been?” she launches into a little bit of “Show My Ass”‘s chant over Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” The rest is worth listening to as well. I particularly like the skittering “Do My Own Thing,”… More »

And so ended the Pool Parties, at least in the form in which we know them. That is to say, they ended with fun and sunny sets from the previously confirmed Florida booty rap party starter Dominique Young Unique and Barcelona’s blissed out dance rock blog-beaters Delorean, and a series of special guests that ra… More »

Dominique Young Unique Domination Mixtape

Dominique Young Unique’s “Show My Ass” is a great song. Playing it a few dozens times in a row is part of what inspired us to book the 19-year-old Tampa rapper at this past SXSW. One reason … She has other strong tracks, of course. We posted one, “War Talk,” in regular and remixable forms. More »

Dominique Young Unique – “War Talk”

Dominique was all sass, ass, and age-correcting (she’s 19) at our Range Life party at SXSW a few months ago, today she dropped a new track in our inbox from an upcoming mixtape due in May. It’s a little less on the Yo Majesty/Spank Rock vibe than “Show My Ass,” playing as more of a… More »

Dominique Young Unique – “Show My Ass” Video

I’m into different kinds of music for different reasons. Not everything goes down easy, so it’s a treat when something’s as unabashedly catchy and straight-up fun as 17-year-old Tampa rapper Dominique Young Unique’s “Show My Ass.” And it’s a plus when a summer jam involves this much (actual) personality and skill.
