Krafty Kuts adds, “I’m absolutely buzzing to be returning to my favourite countries, after the crazy two years we have all had, I am so looking forward to getting to travel, and play to the best audience in the world! And if that not enough I am touring with my long-time friend and companion Lee Rous of the Plump DJs – it’s gonna be epic!”

Plumps DJs are highly-popular UK DJ/producer duo Andy Gardner and Lee Rous, widely considered to be the co-creators of the breakbeat genre in dance music. Self-admitted suckers for bass and ‘the groove’, the duo fuse the favourite styles from their youth into what they call ‘Plump Music’. The duo has enjoyed a prolific musical career spanning over two decades, spawning over 100 singles, and many albums and compilations. Plump DJs’ latest release, ‘Gotcha’, has been released on the recently resurrected breaks label, Against The Grain, who have currently set up shop in Brisbane, Australia, making Plump DJs’ return Down Under more special.

Krafty Kuts is also considered one of the pioneers in the UK breakbeat and bass movement, with releases through Ministry Of Sound, OWSLA, Southern Fried, DMC, Fabric and many more. Krafty Kuts has just released his latest single, ‘Let’s Roll’, which has already picked up support from triple j.
