DJ Fresh (Bad Company) comes to the Arches, Glasgow on Wed 23rd November for a live show.
Drum n bass/dubstep crossover sensation DJ Fresh brings his first ever live show to the Arches after storming to no.1 with his latest single Louder. Featuring Kosheen’s Sian Evans, it marks the first single in the dubstep genre to reach no.1 in the UK chart, and is currently being blasted across the nation in the Lucozade Lite ad campaign.
One of dance music’s visionaries, Dan Stein – uberproducer, DJ and label owner – is one of the driving forces behind the success of drum n bass. Once described as “a tornado rolling across the horizon”, he has consistently led the scene for more than a decade, working with a plethora of artists from both within and outside of the drum and bass fraternity.
A founding member of d’n'b collective Bad Company alongside Jason Maldini and dBridge, a 19-year-old Dan Stein enjoyed early success with The Nine, which since 2004 has been voted the best d’n'b tune of all time by Drum and Bass Arena. It set the standard to which Fresh would continue to aspire throughout an illustrious career – Bad Company went on to win numerous awards and accolades with a host of DJ and club favourites, including the album Inside the Machine, which won the best album of 2000 in the industry authority Knowledge Magazine. His recent hits include Hypercaine, Gold Dust and Louder, as well as a remix of Katy B’s Broken Record.
Support on the night comes from Delta Heavy.

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
