Unique DJ has been spinning the wheels of steel since the age of 14.
After 3 years crafting his skills in the solitude of his bedroom, he played his first live club set in 1998.
10 years later, Unique has played alongside most of the big name DJs in South Africa and has found a broad fan base - playing everywhere from the elitist clubs of Jo’burg’s northern suburbs to massive parties in the townships of the North West Province.
Not limiting himself to one style of music, Unique plays everything from deep house to electro funk & trance.
"It all depends on the mood of the crowd."
The ability to switch between genres is one of the reasons why Unique has entertained up to 6000 people at a time.
It was in 2005, at the legendary ESP in Jo'burg, that Unique cemented his reputation, mixing dirty Electro Funk on the House Floor on Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons as a guest DJ - in late 2008 he was appointed as a resident on the House floor.
Like many of the world’s most successful DJs, Unique is now producing his own tracks.
With styles ranging from House to Trance, his first two electro-house tracks, "Bassmental" and "Change Over", were released in late 2007 on London based digital label, Chameleon Muzik.
The tracks featured on Derek "The Bandit" Richardson's Sound Republic Podcast.
In early 2008, Unique DJ's third electro-house track, "Phat Cat", was picked-up by South Africa's newest independent record label, More Music - and featured as a "Hot Release" on DJ Download.com for 2 weeks.
A few months later his remix of the classic "There's only you" by Sonic Divas was also released through More Music.
In 2009 his track "Missile" was signed to Chameleon Muzik & was later re-released in a “best of” package called “Chameleon Muzik Essentials Vol 1”.
October 2009 sees the release of Unique Dj’s 2 track Tech House EP called “Shapes”.
His Tech House remix of “Higher Dimension” by Richard Sharp will be released later in year.
This package was also picked up for re-release by Canada’s Play Digital – this label is home to artists like Deadmau5, Nino Anthony & Melleefresh.
In early 2010 he mixed the album "Chameleon Muzik Dj Sessions Volume 1" - featuring tracks by himself, Paul Bingham and Kyle Watson.
He also did remix work for the likes of Jnr J, Paul Bingham & Lizzie Curious.
In October 2010 he was featured live for an hour on South African national radio station, 5fm.
