Plumps DJs are internationally renowned UK DJ/Producer duo Andy Gardner and Lee Rous, widely considered to be the co-creators of the Breakbeat genre in dance music. Self admitted suckers for bass and ‘the groove’, the duo fuse the favourite styles from their youth into what they call ‘Plump Music’. The creative hub from which Andy & Lee craft their sound, is to this day still sited in Central London’s Soho. The results of which have led the duo to the four corners of the world to perform via a four deck DJ show, notching up literally thousands of live appearances.
The duo have enjoyed a prolific musical career spanning over two decades, spawning over 100 singles, many award-winning albums and compilations. Their sound was originally born into the now legendary breakbeat label Fingerlickin Records in the late 90’s, whose pioneering work provided the platform for the ground breaking A Plump Night Out album. This led to a golden era of breakbeat releases masterminded by label creators Jem Panufnik and Justin Rushmore of Soul of Man fame. Their list of collaborators reads like a line up at superfestival: Mark Ronson, Deadmou5, Fatboy Slim, Orbital… the list goes on.
Their legendary 10 year residency at Fabric Nightclub and subsequent regular shows at their home towns leading venues like XOYO and Ministry of Sound, are testament to the success of the Plump DJs in London. Further afield they have graced the main stages at premier festivals Boomtown, Glastonbury UK, Coachella USA, Fuji Rock Japan, Breakfest and Field Day Australia to name a few. Some of the worlds best nightclubs and venues have also felt the power of repeat Plump DJs shows.
