DJ Fresh has announced that he plans to quit touring next year because he “cannot continue to be part of this industry”.

“I’ve decided to come off the road altogether after this year (Jan next year to be exact)”, he wrote on Facebook. “If you want to see me, come out to one of the gigs between now and then. It’s time to begin the next chapter of my life. And it’s way overdue. Need to think about my health and life. I cannot continue to be part of this industry. I hate everything about it. It’s fake, soul destroying and promotes everything BUT experimentation and heartfelt emotion (which is what music means to me)”.

Although that sounds like a damning indictment of the entire music industry, he went on: “I just want to add that this is in no way related to my record label/labels who have all been fantastic (there are some good ones out there!). Maybe one day I’ll write a book, and explain it then”.

There is no book yet though, so for now you can read the details of some of those final shows instead.
