Following the groundbreaking success of A Plump Night Out and 2003?s Eargasm the Plump DJs are back with 70 minutes of the highest quality blistering breaks. With 11 original tracks and 2 remixes, Andy Gardner and Lee Rous have called upon some of the scene?s biggest names such as The Freestylers, Soul Of Man, The Drumattic Twins, Lee Coombs and Italian sensation Madox to bolster this already heavyweight package. Opening with the hip-hop inspired ?A Plump Lesson?, the album wastes little time warming up with a chunky remix of Lee Coombs? ?Shiver?; and on to the catchy ?Dr Dub? which samples the Thompson Twins? ?Doctor Doctor?. Alongside the already released and hammered singles ?Soul Vibrates? and ?Bullet Train?, the award-winning Plump DJs deliver an album that also features the forthcoming ?Get Kinky? and ?Acid Hustle? singles. Whilst the Plump DJs swept the board at this year?s Breakspoll Awards winning Best Producers, Best Remix (Freestylers ? "Push Up") and Best Single ("Soul Vibrates"), the proof will always be found in the pudding. And proof indeed for all of the above can be found here in extra large, full fat portions as the Plumps reaffirm their status as the biggest name in breaks and one of the hottest acts in dance music today.
Ecclectic breakbeat from top to bottom.

"If you're a fan of the Plumpsters, you will not be disappointed by this artist/mix album (75% of the tracks are by the Plump DJ's, yet it's mixed). They fill in gaps between their own songs, with matching high energy vibes, and punishing breaks.
The entire album is filled with electro and acid house, never getting too progressive or dark. It's funky house, injected with the tings and energy these guys are known for. There really are only two weak tracks out of 17, and no bad ones at all. My two least favorite were Dr. Dub (rather simple and really doesn't go anywhere) and Smartbomb (borders on cheese). The companion to the recently released single Dr. Dub is called Blackjack, which is sadly not on here, but I found to be more enjoyable than it's EP headliner.
As for killer tracks, my favorite is the echoing beats of Redshift, followed by Hell Up in Harlem, and Acid Hustle. The best non-Plump track is easily their remix of the Freestylers Push Up, which is right near the culmination of the meat and potatoes of the mix, tracks 7-15.
Bullet Train is already a smash, and as far as Get Kinky, I love the beat and fast pace, but I'm not completely sold on the recycled Missy Elliot lyrics.
Overall, one to listen to straight through without any trouble at all. A clear winner for these Dj's of electro breaks."

"Had to admit it.the opening to this album was kinda weak...its cliche mix album stuff..things do get moving and grooving after track 3 "Dr Dub" ..had to admit i was bopping and grooving to gems such as "smartbomb", "smells like naples" "soul vibrates" to name a few...The plump djs did a good job with the freestylers "push up"..make it sound more fist thumping..
Plump Djs are legends in the making...or are they already...?"
