Legends of the breaks scene the world over, Plump DJs and Krafty Kuts have teamed up to bring their 2022 Breakout Tour to Australia and New Zealand this June.
Kicking off in Auckland on June 10th, the Breakout Tour will then hit Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane before finishing up in Perth on June 19th. For their long-time fans this tour can’t come soon enough, with everyone ready to dust off the cobwebs from the past two years and hit the dancefloor with a vengeance.
“The time is now and our Breakout tour of Australia and New Zealand is properly happening,” says Lee from Plump DJs. “After all that our worlds have been through, we just can’t wait to be all together again and celebrate the breaks!”
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 internationally renowned 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 award-winning albums and compilations. Plump DJs’ latest club smash, ‘Gotcha’, is the kind of plumpy crowd-pleaser that they have become known for, and is 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 even more special.
Renowned and respected worldwide for his highly technical turntablism, meticulously crafted DJ sets and party-punching productions, Krafty Kuts is in a league of his own. One of the key pioneers in the UK breakbeat and bass movement, Krafty Kuts has multiple awards to his name and has released music with the likes of 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.
The combination of Plump DJs and Krafty Kuts is a match made in breaks heaven. Don’t miss the opportunity to catch them on tour this June on the Breakout Tour.
