Plump DJs este of formație de muzică formată din Lee Rous și Andy Gardner. Plump DJs au aparut in 1999, odata cu lansarea single-ului de debut "Plump Chunks/Electric Disco". Ceea ce a urmat dupa, este deja istorie. Creatiile lor au ridicat noi standarde si au schimbat perceptia asupra muzicii electronice de dans, intr-un moment in care scena mondiala de breakbeat aluneca incet, dar sigur, intr-un singur sens. Multi au fost inhibati de atitudinea indrazneata pe care o abordau cei doi. Altii s-au culcat la loc. Dar cei mai multi au aclamat sunetul care a zguduit ringurile de dans din UK, SUA, Canada, America de Sud pana in Australia, Noua Zeelanda sau Japonia.

Cei doi se mandresc deja cu doua albume („A Plump Night Out” 2000, „Eargasm” 2003), o compilatie „FabricLive” (2003), doua compilatii pentru celebra revista Mixmag („Elastic Breaks” - 2001, „Mixmag The Annual” - 2005), plus compilatia „Saturday Night Lotion” 2005, pe care multi o vad drept al treilea album al celor doi. La care se adauga zeci de release-uri, dintre care am putea aminti... de fapt, intrebarea este, ce sau daca exista vreo piesa lansata de cei doi pe care sa NU o putem aminti: „Electric Disco, Remember My Name, Big Groovy Fucker, In Stereo, Squeaks & Bleeps, Pray For You, When The Funk Hits The Fan, The Gate, Creepshow, Soul Vibrates, Scram, Bullet Train, Dr. Dub, Blackjack, Get Kinky, The Pressure, Redshift, The Rub Off, Acid Hustle, Mad Cow, Listen To The Baddest” sau „System Addict”. Nenumarate remixuri pentru artisti ca BT, Orbital, Fatboy Slim, Freestylers si multi altii, productii care au ramas in istoria muzicii de dans ca ‚modern classics’. Si pentru ca plump-mania nu se putea opri aici, sunt printre putinii artisti ai scenei de breaks care au reusit sa depaseasca bariera genului cu mult, avand piese care au patruns la mai multe posturi de radio mainstream. Sa ne aducem aminte de impactul pe care l'a avut remixul Plump DJs la piesa Freestylers - Push Up. De aici pana la ce a urmat, a mai fost un singur pas. Plump Djs au asigurat coloana sonora mai multor jocuri Sony PlayStation, numele celor doi fiind asociat si cu un celebru spot al marcii Levi's.

Breakspoll - International Breakbeat Awards, cel mai important eveniment mondial al scenei de breaks, care decerneaza anual cele mai ravnite premii din industrie. Ce am putea spune despre un duo care in decursul anilor a reusit sa acumuleze premii la fiecare importanta categorie:
