the entire year. It is no surprise that the Plump DJs named

asked who the most exciting producers are.
With his current releases being played by the likes of Kissy
Sell Out, Lee Mortimer and DJ Dan, a second full-length album
already in the works and a 2010 touring schedule that will
take him to the 4 corners of North America and abroad, it's
