DJ Fresh shows his ‘Drive’ on comeback single after cancer recovery


After a brief hiatus from chart domination, DJ Fresh returns to kickstart a new decade with his brand new single ‘Drive’.

Since the early 2000’s the name DJ Fresh has been synonymous with innovation, but after 20 years of success in the music industry including signing acts like Pendulum and Chase and Status to his label Breakbeat Kaos, Fresh took a step back from touring and playing global shows to concentrate on his health, following a thyroid cancer diagnosis in 2016.

He attended a Ruby boot-camp and became a Machine Learning Developer at a leading education research company in Oxford, where his work helped to win innovation awards.

Back better and healthier than ever before, Fresh aka Dan Stein, returned to the studio in 2019 to start working on new magic and as a result of that, ‘Drive’ was born.

The track bares all the signature qualities of a sound that Fresh has carefully carved over the years – It’s innovative, euphoric, uplifting and galvanising. The track feels like a celebration, even though its origins stem from a darker place.

Dan was inspired to write the track whilst in radiotherapy sessions during his treatment. During these sessions he was held in isolation and the overwhelming sense of feeling trapped behind lead doors due to being radioactive, led to a song about wanting to escape from his environment and feel a sense of freedom.
