Mixology: Uniiqu3

For years, Newark based DJ and producer Uniiqu3 has drawn national attention to Jersey Club music with regular features in major music publications such a Vice, Billboard, DJ Mag and Complex. She’s also played some of the biggest music festivals in the country, including Afropunk, Coachella and SXSW. Most recently, she was profiled by PBS in a short documentary on the origins, rise to prominence, and ongoing contributions Jersey Club artists are making to global urban music and dance cultures.

If you want to keep up with the latest from the reigning Jersey Club Queen, check out her live show, “UNIIQU3’s Club Chronicles,” every Tuesday & Thursday 6-8PM on Twitch. We suggest pairing her work with this fine cocktail made from a spirit from Newark’s All Points West Distillery:
