Unique Yunes was influenced by the electronic sounds of Depeche Mode, Daft Punk, Leftfield, The Chemical brother’s and Faithless. His drive came from hearing the harmonic blends of sounds by Sasha & Digweed; to Oakenfold’s blissful mixing and the legendary 3 deck Wizard, Carl Cox’s technical skill.
His passion for the Electronic Music Dance scene led him to introduce it to his home city of Bloemfontein by launching many successful events of which up until today, rivals are unsuccessfully striving to outdo and eventually went on to co-owning a couple of clubs in the late 90’s/early 2000’s.
Yunes has the unique ability to read a crowd’s response and the talent to program the correct sounds for that crowd at that moment combined with the experience to flawlessly mix in various genres ranging from commercial sets to purely South African house to all the way to his favorite genre; uplifting tech trance.
