English DJ and producer Daniel Stein, a.k.a. DJ Fresh, is one of the UK's most respected and influential drum and bass producers. Dan began his musical mission at the tender age of 19 when back in 1998 he fronted the hit drum and bass band Bad Company , whom NME dubbed 'the Wu-Tang of drum and bass'.
The group made a name for themselves in the drum and bass industry by creating the record label BC Recordings, releasing three albums and a series of singles, and also setting up Dogs On Acid, the world's largest UK-based electronic music website to date. Their first release The Nine was voted 'Best track of all time' by 130,000 members of Drum and Bass Arena. Bad went on to win virtually every accolade thinkable for a drum and bass act and were a phenomenon across the globe. After five years however, Dan felt it was time to follow his own path. In 2003 he produced Mo-Fire as his final Bad Company outing and it landed at #22 in the UK national charts. A few months later, Dan produced Miracles with Adam F for The Pet Shop Boys as the lead single for their Greatest Hits album. It reached #4; an almost unprecedented proliferation into the national charts for a genre that was so underground at the time.
In July 2011, Fresh absolutely smashed the charts with Louder. Featuring the vocals of Sian Evans and licensed by Lucozade Lite for their TV ad campaign, Louder was the first bass music track to debut at #1 in the UK Singles Chart and has sold over 500,000 copies to date.
Now a household name thanks to Louder, DJ Fresh has recently raised the bar once again via a sold-out UK live tour featuring a full band (including a headline performance at Alexandra Palace in front of 6,000 people), his Future Jungle EP, remixes for Katy B, Hervé and Jessie J and winning 'Best Dance Act' at this year's Urban Music Awards.
