Lee Rous and Andy Gardner, aka Plump DJs, have been performing and producing together since meeting in the late 1990’s. Since the start of their career they have been avid pioneers of diverse electronic music, smashing into the early breaks scene and since then, keeping the electro, house and bass music fields supplied with their ever-evolving beats.
They truly cemented their status as industry heavyweights through the success of still legendary releases such as ‘A Plump Night Out’ and ‘Eargasm’, which in turn led to the run of their epic Eargasm and Headthrash parties at London clubbing institution, Fabric.
As artists they have developed their unique sound through the recently formed Grand Hotel Records imprint. A platform through which to not only release their own productions, Grand Hotel will showcase work from their endless list of collaborators and protégés, at all times supplying only the highest calibre output to their music hungry fanbase.
In between the release of recent Grand Hotel tracks, including Boomer and Light Fantastic, Plump DJs have found time to remix the likes of huge international heavyweights Deadmau5, Loops of Fury and Stanton Warriors. This dedicated studio time has resulted in their tracks played out by none other than Carl Cox, Moby, Crookers, Zinc, Kissy Sell Out, Zane Lowe and more, with stellar feedback flowing in from all directions.
Having already ticked off sell-out shows across the UK, Europe, Asia and Australia in recent months, the Plump DJs 2012 gig schedule is filling up at pace, seeing them set to play at the biggest UK and worldwide venues and festivals.
After the astounding success of their Grand Hotel Records launch parties at London’s XOYO and The Nest, you can expect much more of the same from the GH camp. Line-ups for 2012 will undoubtedly maintain the Grand Hotel Records parties as an unmissable event series for dedicated electronic music followers.
MoPo (aka Robbie Kowal) is one of America's most versatile,
experienced and flat-out joyous party rockers. His decade long mission is to 'put the party back into the party', and to connect the casual music fan with the hard core dance music mavens; proving that music is more than just beats.

Since breaking out as a rare groove Dj in the 90's he has spent the 21st Century using eclectic club styles, break beat, trip hop and tech funk as a backdrop for his genrebending experiments. From a near religious love of funk and hip hop, to a lifetime study of rock and roll to a massive aptitude for latin, reggae and other outernational formats, MoPo incorporates bits and pieces of music culture into electronic edits that slam the dancefloor. As a backdrop, he creates, edits or chooses only the biggest baddest breaks, hooks and drops to create a sound that truly slams. To the dancer, MoPo is a breath of fresh air, often transforming a room into collective song or crowd chant that connect the audience to the DJ.
