LIVE: DJ Fresh @ KOKO, Camden
He's Definitely Got 'The Power'!
DJ Fresh, the man responsible for the first ever dubstep numberone, whipped KOKO London in to nothing short of a frenzy during his set on Tuesday, May 15th. The dubstep pioneer is one quarter of drum'n'bass supergroup Bad Company and has one of the most listened to songs of 2012 under his belt. The super-producer has spectacularly emerged in to the spotlight following 16 years in the background and was ready to show KOKO exactly what he had to offer.
Not content with being supported by superstars Rita Ora and Sincere, Fresh was joined by more special guests than you would believe. Throughout his set Rita, Dizzee Rascal, Rizzle Kicks and Ms. Dynamite all put in appearances and had the audience buzzing.
Dizzee, who surprised the crowd by taking to the stage un-announced, performed new banger 'The Power' before jumping straight in to the adoring crowd. Rizzle Kicks bounced on stage to perform 'Skyhiatrist' and Ms. Dynamite brought her famous tones to 'Gold Dust'. Rita Ora re-joined Fresh on stage to perform their number one hit 'Hot Right Now', driving the crowd in to hysteria.
DJ Fresh stood behind a raised keyboard, bobbing his head along to his beats. His full entourage joined him on stage including an MC and mohican-wearing diva as well as an array of party-goers, shouting out his mantra to "keep the party moving" throughout.
Having already boasted two number one singles, it's hard to imagine that Fresh's upcoming third album won't be continuing this success. The energetic and bass-filled beats were enough to keep the whole of KOKO's audience moving for the entirety of the show – a sentiment I'm sure fans will be recreating in their bedrooms/ cars/ dance floors when his album finally drops.
With collaborations including Professor Green and Rizzle Kicks on the way, tis is one man who is without a doubt 'Hot Right Now'.
