FROM his roots in underground Drum and Bass outfit Bad Company to catapulting himself to mainstream success, DJ Fresh is one of the most prolific pioneers of the genre and has helped guide D&B to a wider audience and to chart hit recognition over the years.

Having notched up numerous top 10 singles and two UK no.1s, whilst collaborating with the likes of Diplo, Rita Ora, Ella Eyre, Dizzee Rascal, Ellie Goulding and more, Fresh is back with new single Higher, a collaboration with in demand producer Used and featuring Nikki Ambers, it’s out now on his Breakbeat Kaos label.

We caught up with DJ Fresh this week and he’s put together a playlist of great tracks for us including the new single. Listen to the music and read what he had to say about the tunes below.

DJ Fresh & Used featuring Nikki Ambers – Higher 

We originally wrote this at house speed just because it felt right, when we realised we sped it up and thought, wow that’s fast.

DJ Fresh – Golddust (Bou & Used remix)

One of my favourite 2022 remixes of Golddust, this has been tearing up clubs and festivals, feels like a great 2022 relick that keeps the elements of the original intact.

DJ Zinc – Super Sharp Shooter

I was just starting to go out raving when this was new. This was everywhere, it was one of the first times I noticed a D&B track coming out of car windows.
