DOMINIQUE YOUNG UNIQUE live
18-year-old Tampa rapper Dominique Young Unique is making music that is breaking out of the ghetto and reaching out worldwide, and she's doing it with swagger. Taken under the wing of Yo Majesty's producer David Alexander and recording in their studio from aged 12, she certainly shares her mentors' taste for rapid-fire raps and high-speed +8 electro club beats. Youthful, raw and full of bite, this 18 year-old is crashing onto dancefloors with her militaristic mash-up of electro and hip-hop.

"YES, I've ruddy seen her. YES, I've ducked and dodged her richocheting shrapnel-pinging verses. And YES, I'm aware of the fact she's underground booty-bass' best stab at a genuine popstar." - NME

"Her statacco rhymes serve as the track's bedrock rhythm while the production moves quickly between percussion-only "Lip Gloss" clap to bass-driven 1-3 bop to shimmering new wave. "I'm doin' this right," goes one of the many hooks packed into this short little tune. Pretty much, yeah." - Pitchfork

"With the sexy swagger of Lil Kim, the ghetto credibility of Trina and the spitting skills of Nicki Minaj, its impossible to ignore Tampa electro rap queen, Dominique Young Unique" - Dazed and Confused

"The young female rapper everyone is talking about." - RWD

VALENTINA FEL live
Valentina Fel's powerful voice literally devours any beat coming her way, equally comfortable riding the rhythms as a ferocious emcee, a haunting singer, or an animated comic. The dancehall-beats are fresh and infectious but make no mistakes, these tunes carry a message.

"Full of aggressive beats, explosive sampling and social protest lyrics, Valentina Fel is the most logical evolution of a riot girl - punk almost in the realm of grime, do-it-yourself attitude with dancehall as a commodity and flamenco-injected defiance" - Super 45
