Unique 3 has been cited by such luminaries as The Chemical Brothers, Coldcut, Goldie & LFO as inspiration, Unique 3’s early 80’s ’Bleep House’ creating the start point for House Music as we know it today & the thousands of House Records that followed & imitated it.

Unique 3s groundbreaking early UK Hip-Hop bridged the gap from US Hip-Hop into a vibrant new sound that was to change music forever: 'Activity' by Unique 3 was the first dance track to sample the AMEN break & went on to become one of the most sampled records ever whilst being cited as one of the very few original ’break-beat’ tracks which later spawned ’Jungle’ then ’Drum & Bass’ & paved the way for Nu-Skool Breaks.

The inclusion of Unique 3's - 'The Theme' on both The Chemical Brothersalbum of tracks that inspired them to make music: 'Brothers Gonna Work It Out' & on Warp Records collection of early House tracks that inspired them to set up their world famous label, an album aptly titled:'Inspirations', stands testament to this. - Virgin/10 Records Press Department

Unique 3 were recently reminded of their major role in the creation of earlyHouse Music scene when 'The Theme' was voted the number 1 track played at the The Hacienda in the ’90s, voted number one by the world famous Deejay team who played there!

Unique 3 broke the national top 20 with their left-field UK Hip-Hop track- 'Musical Melody' (not an easy feat back then) & enjoyed 4 top 5 club chart hits & 2 club no.1’s.

Unique 3s Deejay sets are legendary, switching from jackin electro house to breaks to rollin drum & bass.
