Sweet Like Hunee for Halloween – Review
As part of a scary weekend special, the renowned DJ, Hunee, frightened the crowds of Mint Warehouse for a very wicked night.
A spooky Saturday 27th October saw Hunee, Jayda G & DJ Fett Burger frighten Mint Warehouse with a supple variety of disco, house and techno. Habitually, the venue was bustling for this busy pre-Halloween weekend. Expectations and spirits were raised on a bitterly cold, autumnal evening – all of which did their bit in laying the foundations for what was to be an electric and pulsating atmosphere. Once again, an impressive speaker system was on display, treating punters to clear, crisp and clean sound throughout.
Hunee, aka Hun Choi, is continuing to develop a reputation as a brilliantly talented DJ in the electronic music arena and he extended these thoughts with a remarkable set at Mint Warehouse. Choi settled in to the 3-5am slot (or 4-6am if you hadn’t acquainted yourself with a recent time change), patiently working through some disco and deep house for the first hour, before shifting into some heavier, drum machine dominated techno to close. It very quickly became obvious that this guy is an experienced veteran behind the decks, with every track an ideal tonal match to its previous. His set was bouncy and fit for the occasion with his deep music knowledge ever apparent in his ability to read and control the crowd.
Jayda Guy and DJ Fett Burger set the scene for the evening with their soulful and melodic disco, funk and house tracks. Playing back to back, both founders of the ‘Freakout Cult’ record label showed their deep compatibility as well as their abilities as selectors in a variety of genres of music.
