Leeds, United Kingdom
It’s your typical DJ meets DJ love story: after hooking up at a competition in the winter of 2005, Tod Hodge and Chris Elliott combined their mutual appreciation for ill sounds and set about making music. The result? Stupid Fresh. Fast forward to 2008 and the ‘Fresh are nailing the download charts with an orgy of mucky basslines and big filthy beats.
‘Get The Fuck Up’ (number one on download charts) and ‘Stretch The Canvas’ set the tone for a massive ‘08. Their own Sticky Fingers EP and remixes for Micky Slim, DJ Dan and The Loose Cannons were spanked on dancefloors across the land.
But faceless producers Stupid Fresh are not – the lads from Leeds are also a dastardly duo behind the decks. Whether spinning in Los Angeles, Milan, Toronto, touring in Australia, headlining a 2,000 capacity event in San Francisco, or mixing it with the best at Judgement Sundays in Ibiza two weeks on the bounce. Stupid Fresh don’t just know how to rock a party – they are the party.
