New Music Video: Lurks At Night – J Fresh (ft. Yus)

The latest record to drop from the well-received ‘Fruit Salad’ album, J FRESH calls in Yus for ‘Lurks At Night’.

With a sharp-looking visual, that dropped on JDZ Media, and a bassline heavy instrumental, Yus sends out a stream of rapid fire and reload bars. The J Fresh production is a shining example of his skills as he sparks off Dizzee’s ‘I Luv U’ mix with a quirky concoction of garage, bassline and a nod to Artful Dodger x Craig David classic, ‘Rewind’.

Making his producer debut in early 2017, J FRESH has shown commendable determination to solidify himself within the scene. The release of his two E.P’s and his album have proved for continuous growth and recognition, seeing his music premiered with the likes of DJ Target at BBC Radio 1Xtra, picked up for BBC Radio 1Xtra’s ‘Introducing’ list and heavily supported across Kiss FM and Capital Xtra.

His ‘Fruit Salad’ album features a host of collaborations and contributions from the likes of DJ Target, Charlie Sloth, DJ Olos, Godsgift, Monkstar, DJ Ironik, Lady Ice, Predz UK, ShaoDow and Serocee making it an action packed, 15 track combo of dynamic production skills and talent.
