Dominique Young Unique – “The World Is Mine” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

I first came across Dominique Young Unique via her video for the unabashedly catchy “Show My Ass.” Then we all saw her do it at SXSW 2010. Anyone who’s listened to DYU’s Domination Mixtape knows she has plenty of other great, immediately infectious tracks. Including “The World Is Mine.” This Lily Smith-directed video was shot at Wah Nails in East London while Dominique was on tour this summer. She possesses a charismatic, chaotic live energy — something that comes across well in this clip. As does the song’s equally chaotic production, complete with “Part Time Lover” sample, ghostly “The Girl Is Mine” echo, etc.

Take a listen to the track in the context of that Domination Mixtape. She has some upcoming dates with Dirty Projectors:
