Hong Kong Ping Pong win Littlesouth Dj of 2011

Every year Littlsouth.com (a Cornwall based Nightlife Brand website) run a SW Dj of The Year poll in conjunction with 247 Magazine, in previous years it has been restricted to their podcast roster (our very own Morphosis claimed the title in 2009). This year it was done slightly differently and thrown open to any DJs based in the region. Well… we’ve only gone and blummin won it!

Here’s a little Q & A we did in response to finding out the news:

LS: Congratulations on winning DJ of the Year 2011, how do you feel about it?

HKPP: Well as you can imagine we’re really very chuffed about it indeed! What an absolute honour! There are so many great dj’s and crews in the SW who are doing amazing stuff so to come out top of the pile is really very rewarding. A big thank you to all that placed a vote and big ups to all those throwing parties week in week out, there wouldn’t be a scene with out you so a big communal pat on the back is in order!

LS: What can people expect if they’ve not been able to catch you play live?

HKPP: Fun time party tunes plucked from a very broad spectrum of genres, it’ a real eclectic mix including everything from Ghetto Funk, to Breakbeat, to Dubstep, to Hip Hop, to Reggae, to D n B etc etc the list goes on!

LS: You’ve had a great DJ year, what has been your highlight?

HKPP: It’s been such a great year picking just one highlight is pretty much impossible, our first release on Bombstrikes (a collaboration with one of our favourite artists Pimpsoul) has to come pretty close to the top. Mixtape #7 made a long awaited appearance , becoming a central part of the ghettofunk.co.uk community, featuring on the Icons Remixed Albums and Spinforths ‘Weekly Soundcloud Scour’ rapidly emerging as an internet phenomenon. Fat Harry Squid dancing for Gilles Peterson. Our 4th Birthday with Stickybuds, Slim Goodgroove and Will Streetwise. Playing in Australia and New Zealand. DJing under a viaduct. Getting messy at Aeon Festival was a standout. Invitations to play far and wide supporting Djs of the highest calibre such as Cut La Roc, Featurecast, Krafty Kuts, A.Skillz and The Freestylers, it really has been an excellent year…

What plans do you have for 2012 and beyond?

HKPP: Well we’re looking to push on, try and break out of the SW scene, spreading the HKPP love far and wide and with a little help from some very close friends of HKPP (all very hush hush at the moment) hopefully we’ll be able to achieve just that. We have a number of tunes that are starting to take shape in the studio that we’re pretty excited about, and remix offers coming in thick and fast. There are a bunch of festival bookings in the offing which we’re really looking forward to… but 1st and foremost it’s another popularity contest that we have our sights pinned on, we’d love to scoop another International Breakbeat Awards nomination for either ‘Best Small Event’ or Beating The Crates for‘Best Radio Show’ at Breakspoll 2012, if anyone felt like helping us out they could do that HERE. And when all is said and done… love your balls.xx
