We’re ever so chuffed to be able to present to you a very good and long time friend of Simian Sounds and Hong Kong Ping Pong, Mr Steve Pimpsoul (formally Darft Phunk). We’ve been dragging him down this way since we first met in 2006 after being blown away by his live performance at an all nighter in London, a day of drinking, fish porn and silliness followed culminating in being refused Snakebite & Black in the least comedy filled comedy club I’ve ever been to, unless of course you count Richie doing the wheelbarrow and lawnmower in a dance off, and being extremely rude to Roni’s flatmates (sorry Roni we love you!xx).
Multiple bookings at Simian Sounds followed, each surpassing the previous in total awesomeness. He has since moved away from producing tunes at the giddy speeds of 133+ BPM breaks down to a more leisurely bumping 110+ and crams them with more dirty wobbly funk than you can shake a stick at, all of which you’ve thrown shapes to at HKPP in the past, check out his Soundcloud which is chock full of winners like this:
We’re lucky enough to have been taken under Pimpsouls wing in the production department and even luckier to have collaborated with him on a few tunes now including the ‘BackBeat SoundSystem – Old Friend OF Mine‘ remix, on ‘Get Original’ which is forthcoming on the mighty ‘BombStrikes‘ as part of his next artists EP and a secret banger we like to call ‘Umpa Jumper’.
Having recently toured Canada and smashing it everywhere he played he comes armed with a fresh salvo of battle weapons that are gonna blow the roof off The Watermans, this really is one not to miss, it’s also his Birthday so why not come down and help him celebrate! If you were down at the last HKPP you’ll know it banged hard and this one is set to bang harder, please get down early to avoid disappointment as the queue stretched up the hill on to the high street by about 11pm.
