Get familiar. Toast the gods, the Queen is in the building. UNiiQU3 blesses us with The New Klassiks mixtape, a 20-track release from a collection of the finest club producers and DJs on the East Coast. UNiiQU3, born Cherise Gary is the undisputed queen of Jersey club. Part of the venerable Brick Bandits crew, her sound is heavy, unapologetic and rife with drum triplets, bed squeaks, moans, groans and hilarious skits to break it up. Seriously though--even Siri knows she's the queen. Borrowing samples from her Brick Bandit predecessors like DJ Tameil and Baltimore legend Rod Lee, UNiiQU3 puts the evolution of the music she grew up listening to on display. Get it? The new classics. It's also a collaborative release with Lit City Trax, a record label and collective you might be familiar with if you frequented their sweat-stained parties at the now-closed DIY venue 285 Kent in Brooklyn. You can catch UNiiQU3 play a b2b set with DJ Tiga at the next Lit City rave on May 30 in NYC. Did we mention UNiiQU3 put together our last hearty mix?
