"Whipping together a mesmerising flow of freestyle bass, frequency-driven abstractions, penetrating rhythms and an intangible sip of soul, Unique 3 has been on the razor's edge of dance music since its' inception. And there is a worrying selection of scars to prove it."
Forever etched into Warehouse legend with the pioneering of 'Bleep House', Unique 3 was instrumental in evolving House Music beyond its roots in Soul and Disco and into a futuristic soundscape that drove the progressions of Dance Music as we know it, setting the standard and the headspace for a staggering number of records that followed.
Unique 3 has been cited by such luminaries as The Chemical Brothers, Coldcut, Goldie & LFO as inspiration.
Unique 3's groundbreaking early UK Hip-Hop bridged the gap from the US-style into a vibrant new sound that was to change music forever. 'Activity' by Unique 3 was arguably the first dance track to sample the infamous AMEN break, and layered with a second break, it is easily recognisable as the "go-to" breakbeat that went on to become the staple drum sample for foundation producers of 'Jungle' then' Drum & Bass.'
The inclusion of Unique 3's 'The Theme' on both The Chemical Brothers' album of tracks that inspired them to make music (Brothers Gonna Work It Out) & on Warp Records' collection of early House tracks that inspired them to set up their world-famous label (an album aptly titled 'Inspirations' and later their download site named after Unique 3's sound "BLEEP") stands as a testament to this. – source: Virgin/10 Records Press Department
Edzy was recently reminded of Unique 3's iconic status in the history of dance music when 'The Theme' was voted the number 1 track played at The Hacienda in the '90s by the Deejays that played there. The fact that any of them can remember anything is a testament to the hypnotic power of the Bleep. source: Virgin/10 Records Press Department
