Two months after revealing that he’s fighting thyroid cancer, DJ Fresh will stop touring for good in January. In a Facebook post the UK drum ‘n’ bass DJ/producer wrote that “it’s time to begin the next chapter of my life. And it’s way overdue. Need to think about my health and life.”

Fresh then went on to disavow himself from a future in the music industry, though he wasn’t specific about whether or not he will continue to produce music. “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).” Fresh went on to say 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 😉”
