The world-renowned German DJ, Frank Muller was in Hong Kong on the 12th of August, spinning his tunes at the very popular but exclusive venue called Volar. He has played at numerous places before coming to Hong Kong to make an appearance, and is very affluent amongst the European and Japanese techno scene.
Although most of his tracks were quite repetitive, it seemed to give the large number of people at Volar what they wanted; a hard techno beat rhythm, quite different to the previous DJâs who have played at Volar. DJ Frank came on at around 1.30 and didnât stop till around 3, as the masses of people at Volar had miraculously disappeared to another hotspot in Lan Kwai Fong. If an over all rating of his tracks were given, Iâd have to say DJ Frank was a 6, on a scale from 1 to 10.
Even though DJ Frank has played at some of the largest events in the world, such as the Love Parade and Mayday, and is the resident DJ of a club in Japan, I recon he could have done much better that night.
As DJ Frank was spinning in the main room at Volar, DJ Tynee (Elaine Shin) was working the decks in the second room. I have always been a big fan of Elaineâs music and in my opinion, she gave the dancers what they wanted; a good mix of trance with some funky beats attached. DJ Tynee is the resident DJ of Volar, spinning there on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. It is most definitely recommended to go see her play. I was fortunate enough to sit down with Elaine and ask her a few questions about her DJ-ing experience.
