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.

Plump DJs – Breezeblock 02/10/2000



This weeks classic Throw Back mix is from none other than the Plump DJ’s. Now I was going to post the awesome Elastic Breaks mix they did for Mixmag but I’m sure everyone has heard that a million times (quite rightly so). I wanted to dig a little deeper and this mix was one of two I found that I feel show the duo at their best. Throwing down classic Plump material alongside lesser known bootlegs, garage, break-step, tearout and house they meld all the different flavours of breakbeat into an hour long mix of titanic proportions. This is one that needs to be played at high volume!

Jem Stone vs Plump DJs


You know its gonna be awesome before you even hit play don’t you? Plumps vs Jem Stone can only really produce one result. Gloriously funky bass, smoldering beats and oozing with dat funk. Here’s what Jem has to say…

“Plump DJs are arguably the wickedest confection to have oozed out from that veritable sweet-trolley-of-breaks imprint, Finger Lickin’ Records, and exactly a decade ago their supersized Eddie Bo-sampling platter Funk Hits the Fan not only did what it said on the menu, it sprayed across the dining room so damn hard it’s going to take another ten years and some serious pressure-steaming to get that sticky funk out.

And on this special anniversary who better to serve up a fresh, new, completely unofficial-but-irresistible slice of 10th birthday cake than Finger Lickin’ co-founder (and the label’s second-naughtiest act, Soul of Man) Jem Panufnik, aka Jem Stone?!”

So 10 years down the road and Finger Lickin’ are arguably still the biggest breaks label ever! Join the party and get the FREE DOWNLOAD from Jem’s BANDCAMP PAGE.

Plump DJs – Get Kinky (Random Preset Re-edit)

Random Preset


Now trap is a genre that has passed me by completely but when the Plumps get remixed in a trap stylee then you better take notice. The classic Plump DJ, fatter than fat beats get replaced by the half time shuffle you would expect but everything else is still present and correct, even if it is glitched, chewed, chopped and trapped. The huge main riff does loose some of its dance floor impact but it’s a great reinterpretation by newcomers Random Preset.

Skeelo – I Wish ( Plump DJ’s Remix)


Deliciously dark and dirty version of the 90’s hip hop classic by the Plumpest duo this side of fat camp. After being cained by the breakbeat elite for the last few months, it’s now your’s to own in all its electro bass glory. Get on the download!
