Roc Nation / Columbia release the new single ‘Shine Ya Light’ on 4th November. For the making of the video Rita returned to her home country of Kosovo for the first time in eight years where she was greeted by the President and Prime Minister. She described it as the best video shoot she has ever done - ‘I was born in a little city called Pristina which no one really knows about, so I’m proud to kind of put it on the map out there a little bit because we are a very patriotic country so we always try and mention us wherever we can because it’s such a great place.’
Rita’s new single ‘Shine Ya Light’ is available for pre-order now and will be released on 4th November on Roc Nation / Columbia Records.

“This is the first drum ‘n’ bass number one, and for me particularly that’s a massive, massive feeling of achievement,” DJ Fresh – aka Daniel Stein – told the Official Charts Company. “We’ve all been pushing for so long to get the music taken seriously and to be seen as a platform that anything can be done on.(digitalspy report)
Following his #1 smash hit ‘Louder’ – one of 2011′s biggest-selling singles – DJ Fresh is back with his new single ‘Hot Right Now’, featuring the vocal talents of Rita Ora.
The 20-year-old singer-songwriter is being hailed as the jewel in the Roc Nation crown and was signed by Jay Z after one phone call. Rita’s vocals give ‘Hot Right Now’ a distinctive twist and the track bristles with the kind of energy and signature beats that Fresh has become known for.
Now a household name and armed with the accolade of having the first dubstep/drum & bass track to top the national singles chart with ‘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 – and his new album is already one of the most anticipated albums of 2012.
‘Hot Right Now’ is released on 26.02.12 on Ministry of Sound Recordings.

Download DJ Fresh feat. Sian Evans – Louder (Peace Treaty Remix) DJ Fresh’s massive hit “Louder (ft Sian Evans)” has debuted at number one on the UK singles chart this week with sales of 140,000 – the second highest weekly sales number for all of 2011. In addition to this outstanding debut sales position, “Louder (ft Sian Evans)” is also #1 most-played record on BBC Radio 1 and topped the iTunes chart within a few hours of its release.
Musically, “Louder” pastes together pop, dubstep and drum n’ bass and features Sian Evans, vocalist with British pop-dance group Kosheen, The track is also the theme for a widely aired TV commercial for the Lucozade Sport Lite drink and features LA’s hottest roller skating talent; including one of the world’s best freestyle skateboarders in Kilian Martin. The video is the brainchild of Ben Newman, the director behind DJ Fresh’s first hit ‘Gold Dust’ which has received over 8 million views on YouTube.
Fresh tells Ministry Of Sound how this smash came about: “”I started ‘Louder’ at the end of last year, it began as an instrumental though it was always supposed to be a song with a vocal. I played it out at a festival in Belgium and the crowd went nuts! Sian Evans (who I knew from her days as front woman of Kosheen) and I had been talking about working on something together for a while and it seemed like the perfect track. I had a muffled recording of the chorus (with slightly different words), and I’d excitedly got out of bed to sing into my phone at about 3 o’clock in the morning one night. When Sian started scatting around it it worked perfectly, we changed a few words, notes etc and then wrote the verses, the whole song was written like that in just one night!”
DJ Fresh is currently playing the world’s finest international festivals before heading to North America for two weeks of gigs at the end of July through early August. He’s also in the midst of working on his new artist album has some collaborations in the pipeline with Flux Pavilion and Sian Evans, among others
