Having only made his debut as a producer in early 2017, J Fresh went on to release a succession of singles and two E.P’s to critical acclaim and has now dropped an entire album to shut down what has been an extraordinary year for the one-man army.
The album features a host of spirited and legendary talent including grime originals Monkstar and Godsgift for the albums lead single ‘Tryna Get By’, whilst DJ Ironik, Lady Ice, Predz UK, Shaodow and Serocee all feature on the remainder of the 15 track offering. Whilst previously J Fresh has been storming out the grime shellers, ‘Fruit Salad’ demonstrates his dynamic production capabilities with notes of Trap, R&B and Caribbean flavours flowing in to the mix. His ability to draw on his solid experience and ear as a certified DJ selector has undoubtedly helped to create such a well-rounded and genuine set of records that have been clearly created out of sheer passion and love for his craft.
His relentless work ethic this year has awarded him with support from gatekeepers including Charlie Sloth, Rude Kid, Sian Anderson and Logan Sama as well as online support from the likes of Hype Magazine, Link Up, GRM Daily, RWD and Vents Magazine, whilst his extensive skill set has allowed him to push his music even further in to the speakers of the nation via guest mixes at Kiss FM, an epic Back to Back against DJ Target at BBC Radio 1Xtra and his own UK tour throughout November. J Fresh also continues to host his own syndicated show on over 50 stations and his online interview series, whilst he regularly holds down a residency on Charlie Sloths BBC Radio 1Xtra show too. With an album release to add to his name, J Fresh continues to expand his every growing legacy in the music world.
