Plump DJ’s Interview / Hotcakes Xmas Party Competition


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.




11.30-1 Jurassik
1-2.30 A-Skillz

2.30-4 Plump DJs
4-5 Rev D Wayne (Alabama 3 DJ set)
5-6 Final Conflict



I caught up with headliner Lee Rous aka one half of the Pump DJs to find out a little more before the night. Keep up to date with everything Plump related via their Facebook and Soundcloud pages.


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.
