“For all its dalliances with mainstream popularity in its 20 year history, drum n bass didn’t manage to score its first UK number one single until last month.
DJ Fresh helped dubstep to a more rapid ascension with its first number one, ‘Louder’, last year, and in February he dragged drum n bass up to the top as well with ‘Hot Right Now’, more than fifteen years after Goldie became the first dnb producer to be playlisted on Radio 1.
