London’s longest-running and most celebrated breakbeat party, Hot Cakes is back at Jamm, where the bass meets the rhythm.
Joining founder Jurassik will be the mighty Plump DJs, legends of forward-thinking electronica and sometime breaks heroes, along with the always astounding A-Skillz, king of roughhouse midtempo funk beats and killer b-line attitude.
Support comes from Final Conflict, who’ll be bringing plenty of bass, with many more acts yet to be announced.
The last Xmas Supatronix was an absolute roadblock with hundreds of people locked outside on the night as we moved to one in one out, so advance ticket purchase is fully advised.
2.30-4 Plump DJs
4-5 Rev D Wayne (Alabama 3 DJ set)
5-6 Final Conflict
Who are you, what do you do, and what style of music do you play?
We are Plump DJs and we play electro, bass, breakbeat, techno, and house and garage.
What’s happening in the life of Plump DJs at the moment?
We’ve just finished our new single called You Belong To Us and also sorted out a video. And we’ve been working hard on music for next year, touring Canada, and getting lots of studio work done, lots of fun really.
How would you describe the current Plump DJs sound?
Bass-led dance music. We’re playing at around 120bpm which is slower than we’re used to, but we’re bringing a lot of our older records into the end of the sets having recently remastered some tunes from the last 15-years. It’s pleased a lot of the older fans that we’re playing some of the older stuff.
You’re playing the Albama 3vs Hotckaes Christmas Party this weekend. Are you looking forward to it? The Hotcakes crew always throw a great party right?
We’ve done a couple of their events up and down the country. We did their boat after-party with Elite Force on the Thames, which was great fun, and we’ve played up in Manchester for them as well. They know how to out on a good show and the sound system is always good. We’re really looking forward to it. We’ve played Jamm before and had a really good set there. And it’s the A3 album launch after party so there’s going to be a real upbeat atmosphere.
Any other artists on the night that you’re looking forward to hearing?
They’re all of a great standard, the only problem for us is that we’ve got a gig down in Chichester so we won’t be up till three in the morning so we won’t be hearing anyone. We’re just going to get in and hopefully raise the roof.
What can people expect from your set on the night?
We’re playing for 90mins. It’ll be a progressive set in tempo, plenty of bass and inventive music in the early part and then later on we’ll be playing some well-known hits from yesteryear. So there should be something in there for everyone.
You’ve played a few classic disco/funk sets recently. What is bringing you back to that sound and is it something that we can expect more of?
We’ve been asked to play some disco parties next year already actually. I think it’s allowed us a bit of variation. We’ve been Djing most weekends for a long time so I think it’s important just for your own sanity, and it’s music from our teenage years so it’s good for the soul. In a way it helps you to keep your vibe alive a little bit because it tends to shape your ideas whilst you’re in the studio. It’s really nice to hark back to those early roots and remind yourself why you started DJing in the first place.
What can we expect from you guys over the next year?
We’re thinking about releasing some of our old tracks. We haven’t remastered all of them but the temptation is there. We’ve got a lot of new music loaded in the Plump gun and ready to be fired out over the next year. And we’ve started a new video project for those releases as well. So look out for some lively rhythms coming to you very soon.

This weekend sees the Hot Cakes crew teaming up with Instant Vibes and taking over the Thames with their summer boat party. The main players of both labels Deekline and Krafty Kuts are headlining with a plethora of the best bass and breaks DJ’s supporting.
The after party at Brixton Jamm is again stacked full of the baddest breaks and bass with our fellow bloggers Funk and Filth hosting room two. Grab yourselves a ticket HERE. You can also read through to the bottom of the page for your chance to win 2 x tickets to the after party.
I caught up with Deekline ahead of the party to find out a little more.
1. Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions. For those that don’t know, who are you and what do you do?
I’m Deekline, a London-based producer and DJ. I’ve been doing my thing since the late 90s and I like to think I cover a number of different styles of dance music pretty well.
2. What’s currently happening in the world of Deekline?
A the moment I’ve got my EP coming out called the Heartbreak EP that’s been doing really well and getting some very positive feedback. Annie Mac played it on Radio One, so I’m very happy about that. The track had a lot of time and heart put into it so I’m pleased it’s doing well.
3. The Hot Cakes vs Instant Vibes Boat Party is this weekend. What is it that makes the boat parties so special?
In part it’s that the party is on the Thames going through the centre of London. It’s one of the most cultured places in the world and you pass some of the most historic places in the capital while listening to some of your favourite music. It’s definitely the best way to see the city, and the crowd is always great. They seem very easygoing and real partygoers who don’t have any chip on their shoulders.
4. As always a wicked line up but who would be Djing your perfect party? Past and present?
My ideal party would have to packed full with people who have inspired me. You would definitely have to have DJ Hype, because he got me into dance music in the very early days. From the breaks scene I would have Stanton Warriors and Lady Waks. From the house side of things I would have someone from the Chicago scene like Fast Eddie, who would MC and scratch.
5. I see you have a Hot Cakes festival coming soon in Spain. Tell us a bit more
It’s in a beautiful part of the country, Andalucia, where they are very passionate about their breakbeats. I’ve been going there for 15 years now, and they keep asking me back. I’d highly recommend anyone who wants to travel and see a great breaks show to book a plane ticket and head out there! (Facebook event page HERE)
6. Your own music and the labels you run are a mix of all bass flavours. Do you have a favourite and why?
At the moment I like some broken beat stuff that crosses boundaries, so that people who are into house might play it, and people who are into breaks might as well. I like the Dirtybird label and Chris Lorenzo right now.
7. You have been a staunch supporter of breaks when many others have moved on or dabbled in other sounds. What is it about the breaks that keeps you producing?
I think to be honest I do love house and I come from a garage background but I always found the broken beat more interesting and more funky than a straight four to the floor rhythm. As George Clinton said, if you’re having sex with your partner why wouldn’t you do it in more than one position? You would get bored, wouldn’t you?
8. Any newcomers you have your sights on as “ones to watch”?
I quite like Tony Quattro at the moment. He is doing some great stuff on Trouble and Bass and other labels, and we are getting him over from New York for a little Hot Cakes tour in the Autumn – so watch this space.
9. What else have you got coming up?
I’m going to do the Kazantip festival in Russia again this year, which is always fantastic. As I mentioned, we are doing a Hot Cakes tour in October and November which will be bringing the brand to a whole load of UK cities. Apart from that I’m just pushing to get more radio support for my new music and trying to keep it fresh and interesting in the studio. It’s a good time right now.
We have 2 x tickets to the after party at Brixton Jamm on offer. To enter just follow the instructions on the widget below. Enter with all methods for more chances to win.
The Hotcakes family are venturing into the world of festivals and what better place to host their first event than the breaks capital of the world, Spain.
