Ping Pong Clubbing- Berlin's Next Big Thing?

Text by Jonty Skrufff (Skrufff.com)

German star producer Phonique chatted to Skrufff this week and revealed that he's so passionate about playing table tennis with fellow minimal maestro Steve Bug that he always carries a bat and ball in his car.

"We have a lot of outdoor table tennis places throughout Berlin and you find lots of people playing table tennis in the summer here," he explained. We try and have a game after we finish record shopping.

"I also play ping pong at night-time at this very nice bar here in Berlin called Dr Pong, where they stage these games with ten people on each side," Phonique continued.

"You have to play the ball, then run round to the other side of the table until only two people are left. We play that game regularly in a really cool underground bar, with DJs playing music. You have your bat in one hand and a beer bottle in the other and it's really relaxed. It's really cool," he added.

Phonique's Gift EP comes out on Simple Records on May 29.
