Breakbeat was slumbering away peacefully before the
Plump DJs gave it a loud wakeup call with their first
release 'Electric Disco/Plumpy Chunks' in 1999. With
thundering momentum, their critically acclaimed
productions reformatted dancefloors and perceptions,
and set new production standards. Some were scared
silly, few fell back asleep, but many jumped up for a
shower of Plump freshness. And an alarming universal
consensus was formed. Everyone wanted a piece of the
Plump pie, and fat was in.
Inspired by a top shelf girlie mag entitled Plumpers,
Lee Rous and Andy Gardner met and the Plump DJs were
born. It would be nice to say that before making music,
the Plump DJs had glamorous jobs - but we can1t. Before
the duo met Andy worked in a cardboard box factory and
Lee was a waiter at a Berni Inn. The music started as a
hobby and after a number of excursions and
collaborations with the Freskanova camp, the two found
their oats at the Finger Lickin' stable.
A global need for the bold attitude, squidgy sounds,
and Behemoth basslines amplified by the Plumps pushed
the duo into their Soho based Laboratoire Plump to
manifest a large destiny. Jerk to inflate! Inflate it
did, next vinyl.
'The Push/Remember My Name' on Finger Lickin', waxed
the hairs off everyone's legs and the screams of
delight led the lads into completing their feature
album "A Plump Night Out" in 1999. The album sampler
rocketed to No.1 on DJ magazine Breaks and Beats chart
for three issues in a row.
Before Lee and Andy could smile for another photo
shoot, remix opportunities were piled on the doorstep.
Jumpin' and Pumpin' (with perhaps a bit of pimpin1)
through the year of chronic concoctions the Plump DJs'
spin of Stakker Humanoid's classic 'Humanoid' and a
spate of other remixes for The Freestylers, DeeJay Punk
Roc and Mint Royale ballooned their status. Perfecting
a repertoire of coercive gruff sounds, the Plumps were
in high demand.
Their remixes for the likes of BT and Orbital became
the bubbles of oxygen that rose to the top of the ocean
of global dance music. The Plump ship made waves,
putting the excitable "Oh" back into H20. Historians,
dance music critiques, and Soho restaurateurs chuckled
with glee as Lee and Andy won the Galaxy loaded with
dancefloor ammunition; launching Smartbombs and
dropping laughing gas onto Funny Break terrain,
replacing testosterone nu-skool with accessible sonic
boom and arse wiggle.
