The Correspondents consist of a singer Mr Bruce and a producer Chucks. Both growing up in South London, they formed in 2007 and within two years had taken their hi-octane genre-blending dance music from house parties to festival main stages.
The show that quickly established the duo as one of the best live acts in the UK has Mr Bruce assuming the look of a monochrome matador, singing with force, scatting at speed and dancing like his life depends on it while Chucks takes the audience on a journey through a multitude of genres from jazz and blues to the nether regions of electro and drumʼnʼbass.
Since their inception they have toured far, wide and relentlessly bringing their unique live show to huge crowds (regularly playing to over 10,000 revelers) earning themselves Telegraphʼs ʻTop Ten Glastonbury Highlightsʼ two years in a row. Any time off the road is spent in the studio making music. Their live sets are constantly evolving with regular insertions of new tracks. However it wasnʼt until March 2014 that they pulled together a body of material that they were happy to release as an album. Self produced, recorded and released, ʻPuppet Loosely Strungʼ features tracks that are synonymous with their trademark sound of unique, genre-mashing alternative pop proclaiming the highs and lows of love and lust. This release also reveals a more introspective side of the pair with delicately produced songs that investigate personal loss.
Aside from the music itself The Correspondents have become renowned for their videos that are consistently unique in style and pioneering in technique. ʻWell Measured Viceʼ and ʻGive You Betterʼ were brought to life by Mr Bruceʼs own hand-drawn animation. ʻAlarm Callʼ was also produced by the singer, he creates time lapse/stop motion painted portraits to chart the lives of two characters over 21 years. And the award winning 'Fear and Delight', by visionary film-maker Naren Wilks, was made using a 'composite camera' technique allowing numerous versions of Mr Bruce to dance kaleidoscopically in the same space.
The Correspondents are at an exciting point in their career where years worth of worldwide touring, musical experimentation and video production has come together with the release of their debut album and laying the seeds for the next.
Hong Kong Ping Pong
Remember when going out used to be fun? Do you prefer dancing to posing? Does your idea of dressing to impress have nothing to do with designer labels and everything to do with finding a gorilla costume in the perfect shade of purple? Bored of identikit ‘edgy’ nights called Fraktion, Elastik, and other ironically misspelt words? Well despair no more because THE HONG KONG PING PONG CLUB is here to restore your faith in the weekends!
Playing an eclectic mix including everything from breaks, to dub step, to hip hop, to Peruvian pipe music (okay maybe not the last one) DJs MORPHOSIS and FAT HARRY have spent the last few years working their musical magic to establish HKPP as one of the most vibrant, unique, and fun nights in the South West. As their popularity grew so too did the HKPP family, enlisting such nefarious characters as hip hop and scratch maestro DJ SPINFORTH to the cause.
From its humble roots as the trail blazing NSB radio show Beating The Crates, to its Godzilla-like conquering of the South West club scene, HKPP has kept the three F’s, ‘fresh, funky, and fun (and feathers…no, wait)’ as its mantra. Along the way they have picked up such accolades as Breakspoll nominations for best small event in 2011 and 2012 an NSB award for the best alternative radio show in 2011, the 2011 best little south DJ of the year award, and Fat Harry once placed highly recommended in the Marldon Apple Pie Fair.
It doesn’t matter if it’s in Cornwall, London, Sydney, or Montreal, wherever they are booked the brave men of HKPP endeavour to provide a night unlike any other. So don’t just sit at home fantasising about the best night out that never happened, come and experience it for real with THE HONG KONG PING PONG CLUB. Purple gorilla costumes are of course optional.
Pragmatik will be showcasing his never ending collection of the best in Electro-Swing / Vintage Remix / Funk / Soul / Latin / D&B/ Breaks and much more!
