• d j fresh Kryptonite (CD, £6.50)

    label: breakbeat kaos

    The most heavyweight drum & bass album of 2010 has finally arrived and it’s been well worth the wait! ‘Kryptonite’ is an electronic tour-de-force, a masterpiece of sound design and imagination from one of the scene’s most pioneering figureheads, DJ Fresh. In the making for over three years, Fresh has created a juggernaut of an LP that flickers with ease between his trademark caustic breakneck beats, feel-good vocal tracks and even some slamming dubstep manoeuvres. Essentially ‘Kryptonite’ is a rocket-fuelled ride that dance music fans the world over will be revelling in for a very long time to come. Essential. ABOUT DJ FRESH: Having blown his way into the scene as the fore-figure of NME’s ‘Wu-Tang of drum & bass’, Bad Company back in 1998, Dan Stein has since “perhaps been the biggest influence on drum & bass we’ve ever known” according to Knowledge Mag. With classics to the BC name such as ‘The Nine’ (voted Best Track Of All Time by members of D&B Arena), Mo-Fire (no.22 in national charts) and many more, Fresh went solo in 2003 producing the no.11 summer chart hit ‘Barcelona’ and even a no.4 hit for the Pet Shop Boys. Having produced seminal tracks on labels such as Ram, V and Metalheadz, earnt almost every accolade going and a DJ schedule to match, Fresh now resides on his own world-famous Breakbeat Kaos label with co-founder Adam F and continues to flourish.
