Korean magician Hun Choi aka Hunee masterminded BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix last week, and anyone who has seen him perform in the last few years will know just how exciting that is. Easily one of the best selectors in dance music at the moment, Hunee’s breadth of music and extraordinary technique make him one of the most consistently brilliant DJs around, and so an outing on the Essential Mix comes at the perfect time.
Dancing his way through house, techno, disco and plenty more, Hunee uses the two hour long mix to explore some really obscure territory, with tracks pulled out from all over the globe as Hunee skips through the genres with trademark creativity. Worth immersing yourself in for the duration, this one is more dancefloor focussed than many of Choi’s recorded mixes, and is a real ride through the deeper realms of a really astonishing record collection.
Still fresh from a wonderful show at Leeds' HiFi, Hunee plays at Field Day on Saturday June 3rd, joining Aphex Twin, Flying Lotus, Loyle Carner and loads more as they take over London’s Victoria Park. A week later, her’ll move onto Manchester’s Parklife, performing on Saturday 10th June on Palm House stage as part of Jackmaster’s Mastermix curation. A busy weekend will also see Frank Ocean, Chaka Khan, A Tribe Called Quest and hundreds more at Heaton Park.
