Hump Rock (original mix) - (4:48) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: A one-off release from the Plumps, "Hump Rock" sees the electro-breaks duo absolutely destroy Billy Squier's classic "Big Beat" - the sample behind Dizzee Rascal's "Fix Up..." and, only a few decades earlier, Run-DMC's "Live At The Funhouse". "Hump Rock" breathes a gale of life into it though - bit-crushing, looping and generally rinsing it out with some gnarled bass thrown in too. Heavy and very, very fun stuff.

Boomer (original mix) - (4:42) 130 BPM
   
Water Born Computer Virus (original mix) - (4:27) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Out on the Plumps' Grand Hotel Records, this new double-dose of tunes won't disappoint fans of the duo's breathtaking electro-breaks sound. With "Boomer" riding a low-slung dancehall/tropical rhythm, complete with nice live drums, flat and full bass and catchy vocal hooks, it's perfectly balanced and could easily fit in the sets of everyone from Douster to the Stantons. The other inclusion, "Water Born Computer Virus" is a sleek piece of stripped-down bass-heavy electro, more of a builder than "Boomer" with some nicely warped vocal loops and a clawing lead that'll etch itself onto your brain in no time.

Hammerhouse - (3:04) 130 BPM
Review: The Plumps have become neatly unpredictable; with not so much as a whiff of formulaic laziness, the only consistency is the level of production. Here "Hammerhouse" sees them turning their hands at a DJ Hell/Carl Cox circa "F.A.C.T." style of rolling acid electro that would have sounded just as good 20 years as it does now. Complete with a heavenly breakdown that seemingly comes out of nowhere (and disappears just as quickly), it's yet another triumph for Grand Hotel's dirtiest stopouts.

A Hip House Experiment - (4:57) 129 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Rocket Soul - (5:45) 129 BPM
   
Moby - "After" - (5:02) 130 BPM
Review: The Plumps' wide-eared remit continues as they sweep us off our feet for yet another filthy away game. Three cuts in total, each one ticking a totally different party box. "A Hip House Experiment" is no-nonsense four-to-the-floor bass funk with a cheeky vocal refrain and a bassline so juicy it'll stain a hundred sheets. "Rocket Soul" meanwhile sees the duo revisit a classic from their Headthrash album. Retaining the breakbeat rhythm but adding more complexity to the melody, it's a fine contemporisation. Finally we hit their rather naughty remix of Moby's "After"; switching from swinging breaks to a floor-ploughing 4/4 with a bassline so rude it makes Roy Chubby Brown look like the Queen.

Roll Dope Rhymes - (4:48) 128 BPM
Review: It's been a while since the Plumps served up any treats, so this cheeky one-tracker is a welcome return. Strutting and slapping with a solid thumping 4/4 and infectious bass hook, the duo then take us down hip-house memory lane with a perfectly executed rap that loops with energy over their groove. As we shake deeper into the break, they've also used a timeless spoken word sample and give a cheeky nod to their past with some classic breakbeats.

Super Imploder (club edit) - (4:42) 129 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: The Plumps continue their full-force campaign of dancefloor dominance with "Super Imploder", an unpredictable, cheek-slapping electro burner that's every part as funky as it is filthy. With mighty pose-striking stabs, a gurgling acid riff and a pounding 4/4 rhythm it's an instant crowd charger laced with all manner of peaktime textures. Perfect for all explosive party situations.

Mark Ronson - "Record Collection" (Plump DJs remix) - (4:48) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Bonsai Kat - "Bla Bla" (Detboi remix) - (5:32) 130 BPM
   
Plump DJs - "Gobbstopper" (Blatta & Inesha remix) - (5:56) 130 BPM
Review: The Plumps follow up April's debut Dirty Weekend volume with this tricky trio of upfront bangers. Their own remix of Mark Ronson's "Record Collection" is the most intriguing; proper full-on techno with a screaming acid hook and thunderous 4/4 kick, it's quite the monster... And wildly contrasting to their earlier work. Detboi's remix of Bonsai Kat's "Bla Bla" follows and it's yet another acid-saturated smasher. Those old enough to recall DJ Misjah & Tim's "Access" (ask your mum) should resonate with this. Shucks, anyone with half an ear should resonate with this! Finishing off the uncompromising club-focussed EP is a Blatta & Inesha remix of the Plumps' "Gobstopper"; a lolloping, beats with shades of electro and techno, the Italian outfit have retained the original old school flavoured synth hook and very little else. Floor trembling stuff... Check-in or check the hell out!
