Hunee at Trouw
Keep the disco fires burning: Rush Hour and Future Times’ Hunee pulls a savvy selection of boogie, house and techno jams. Live at ADE 2013.
Although he’s been living in Los Angeles and Amsterdam since, having spent most of the ’00s in Berlin has definitely inspired this truly global music activist. Hunee began his musical adventure heavily into hip hop and rap, and as he dug further into the breaks and samples of his favourite producers, he fell deeper into the disco rabbit hole. After DJing and working at various record stores around Berlin, and meeting many of the city’s other music nerds, Hunee began to produce his own tracks. Releasing across a variety of labels such as Prins Thomas’ Internasjonal, Rush Hour, Ostgut Ton, W.T., and Permanent Vacation, Hunee’s craftily-sampled tracks, such as Rare Silk and Brother are packed full of disco sensibility and dancefloor dynamism, falling timelessly between respectful homage and modern day revamp. Having moved to the West Coast, his natural enthusiasm can only shine brighter, while another chapter of Hunee’s story prepares to be written.
