    Highly doubt it with Fresh retiring

    Well, they have a few new tunes finished right? So I expect at least an EP.

    Fresh didn't retire. Jesus fuck.

    His words:

    He doesn't say anything about quitting music. Actually all he says is he won't be gigging any more after this year and he's going to start a new chapter, whatever that might be. He also says long live Bad Company and if he wants Bad Company to live, then I don't think he's planning on leaving.

    The way his retirement post is written indicates that he doesn't want to make pop music anymore. He's talking about "the industry", and I think Bad Company is separate from that and won't attract any of the grievances he has about his recent DJ Fresh work (I think he called it "soul-destroying")

    Because he could. Because he enjoyed it.

    He obviously took some opportunities to branch out into something new and made the most of it, I'm sure he made some great cash as well as making music with artists he respects.

    That doesn't mean the industry isn't shit, or that he didn't get screwed over.:

    Maybe at first he was like "ooh money" then after a while was like "fuck this is boring and degrading" and finally has had the courage to do what he plans to do, and say what he has said. Perhaps the experimentation and heartfelt emotion is what he sees Bad Company as an outlet for. Let's see

    I'd guessed he meant goodbye to 'DJ Fresh' and hello to Bad Company.

    I'm also guessing his second time around cancer has made him think something along the lines of "do what makes you happy rather than being a slave to the corporate" ?

    anyone took part in the Let It Roll this year?

    I am 90% sure Dbridge played some new BC dubs during his last 30 minutes of set.

    Couple of great tunes, heavy and banging, but in an old fashioned way, not in the big room jumpupish modern neuronotsofunk style.

    + it was fucking great to hear Equilibrium on the proper soundsystem, and finally with the second drop! And the Prolix's remix of Oxygen teased with the nine.
    Such a great set :)

    I am sure they will release new material.
    There's no rush.
    And it is in some way their nod to the old times, Dbridge said few times in his interviews how he adores the dubplate culture, and lack of tracklists, etc :)
