The Hong Kong Ping Pong Club is the funky love child of Dj’s Morphosis and Fat Harry.
They enjoy a right old weekly knees up on their award winning NSB Radio show ‘Beating The Crates‘ 1 til 3pm every Monday, and have been doing so for the past few years now. So when somebody, somewhere, suggested the show was too good to be confined to the web-waves, they decided to fully oblige, and bring it to you live!
Whilst the name ‘Beating The Crates’ works for the radio show, it didn’t sound quite right for the club night, and so, after recalling certain impressive Asian skill sets witnessed on a number of occasions during Fat Harry’s time in S.E. Asia, The Hong Kong Ping Pong Club was born!
Along the way they’ve teamed up with vinyl fiend, hip-hop scratcher and rabble-rouser number one, Dj Spinforth, plus conga/percussionist Speedy Gonzalez and in doing so they have undoubtedly spawned a very special, shiny-happy, funk fueled gem of a night out.
HKPP HQ is in Falmouth, Cornwall, from where they have built up a remarkably loyal following, who no doubt had a big hand in garnering them a much coveted nomination for ‘Best Small Event’ at ‘Breakspoll – International Breakbeat Awards 2011’.
The Hong Kong Ping Pong name continues to spread with gigs (yep, they’re available!) booked out of the county (nosebleeds), has seen them play at Glade, Aeon and Boardmasters Festivals and support the likes of A.Skillz, Freestylers, Scratch Perverts, Krafty Kuts, Ed Solo, Drumattic Twins, Parker and many more along the way, winning them fans & friends wherever they play.
They have recently turned their hands to production under the expert tutelage of their peers and have taken to it like the proverbial ducks to water, collaborating with their good friend Pimpsoul on a number of tunes and remixes some of which have been signed by labels and are due for release early in 2011… watch this
