One Man Party rocks Volar Drummers are the most maligned members of rock groups, often reduced to a punchline - think Led Zeppelin's John Bonham or the Who's Keith Moon - and buried at the back of the stage during live performances. But due to their feeling for a rhythm many have been able to make a successful transition to DJing, and the latest drummer to emerge from the shadow of his kit is Soulwax skinman Steve Slingeneyer, who goes by the stage name One Man Party. The drummer for the Belgian electro-rockers will be performing at Volar on August 14, more than a year after his Soulwax bandmates David and Stephen Dewaele appeared at the Central club under their famed moniker 2ManyDJs. Slingeneyer has become a mainstay on the electro-rock DJ circuit alongside members of the French Ed Banger crew, with one blogger describing his sets as sounding like 'the Prodigy and Black Flag getting high with the Klaxons and NWA while Justice, Nirvana and Diana Ross are closely watching.' He will be supported by the Pimpin' Ain't Easy residents Kid Fresh and Enso, and entry at the door costs HK$250. Rafik puts Pimpin' bash in a spin Speaking of Pimpin' Ain't Easy, which has arguably had the biggest impact on nightclubbing in Hong Kong during the past 12 months, they're about to mark their first year of mashing up everything from hip hop and electro to Baltimore club and dancehall. Being brought out to celebrate the occasion is Rafik (above), a holder of many championship titles from his native Germany and a DJ who has toured with big names including the 2ManyDJs, the Roots, and Qbert, who was impressed enough to feature him on one of his scratching tutorial DVDs. Since launching Pimpin' Ain't Easy, residents Kid Fresh - himself a German DJ championship winner - and Enso - the founder of San Francisco indie label Solos records - have built it into the city's most popular monthly club night, and the boys will have much to celebrate at tomorrow night's party at Cliq in Central. It kicks off at 10.30pm and entry for men costs HK$200, while women get in for free.
