Dominique Young Unique - pics from last night

Thanks to everyone who came last night to The Nest... It was crazy! We even ended up taking Dominique and the whole band for an impromptu afterparty details of which have to remain our precious secret, but one thing we can tell you - we struck a deal with Dominique's producer, so expect to hear their brand new, unreleased material in our sets soon, ahead of everyone else. It's fierce, just as you would expect it.

Meanwhile, thanks to our friend Silvio we can show you some stills from last night. We have plenty of video footage too which we'll feed to our editors and post here soon. What can we say about the performances? Yasmin with her incredibly tight band was a classy warm-up for the unstoppable, incredible Dominique Young Unique. She's got it all man! At some point we had a male dancer jumping on stage and getting low while she was rapping - completely spontaneous action which only raised the temperature in the room... Just wait for the video!

And gee... it was HOT at The Nest, the bare, intimate interior of the club was a perfect setting for the Tampa Bay teenage rapstress. She's one to watch for sure, with a brand new single coming out early next year expect more brilliance - and more badness. You'll hear it sooner than you think - we're totally taking new songs for a spin in January, can't wait to see your reaction... Big up the new golden ghetto queen. Word!

We saw Dominique Young Unique performing live last night and it was absolutely NUTS! TALENT is the word and she's got enough of it to make Missy Elliott look like your local church chorist. See it for yourself, today at The Nest - doors open 8pm. Times as follows:

08.00 / Tender Love
09.30 / Yasmin (live)
10.30 / Dominique Young Unique (live)

The hype around our little showcase has amassed and righteously so.
