The FRESH/LIVE tour of Nov/Dec 2011
In late 2011, DJ Fresh began a new aspect of his career by launching the unique concept show ‘FRESH/LIVE’. This live show was the first of its kind in the drum & bass/dubstep world, incorporating a drummer, guitarist, vocalist and Fresh himself on keys to perform identical renditions of his studio-produced hits in live settings.
Fresh handpicked the musicians that made up the band, calling on people he had encountered at various stages of his career. On the drums was Kodish, a man with over ten years experience as a drummer in the drum & bass scene, having performed with such eminent acts as Moving Fusion, Bad Company, and Pendulum. Guitarist Richard de Rosa founded the Ska/Swing band Scubaroots, with whom he has performed to thousands of people at countless festivals.
Seemingly a master of all trades, he also produced the band’s album, was nominated for producer of the year at the 2011 South West Music Awards, and had previously performed on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge with Example and Fresh. Vocalist Fleur exploded onto the scene after performing on X Factor to 9 million TV viewers in 2005 and had also previously performed with Fresh on Live Lounge, and with Ms Dynamite on 1Xtra.
