There are two sets of rules in this world: Hunee’s and everyone else’s (guess which set Hunee plays by). Behind the decks he’s a fearless go-getter with super-eclectic tastes, just as happy to drop bombs culled from disco, African rarities, vintage Italo, boogie and up-to-the-minute electro, as he is super-soul infused house. Of course every DJ would like to think of themselves as real musical connoisseurs, but this Parisian really is the bees-knees when it comes to pulling aural rabbits out of aural hats. His wondrous sets have taken him all over the world – from America to Europe, Australia to Asia – and it’s great to have him back once again in the north-east. He’s playing the upstairs room. Doing the biz downstairs will be International Extraterrestrial Music. Result!
