Story of Song

DJ Fresh explained to the Ministry of Sound how ‘Louder’ came about: “I started ‘Louder’ at the end of last year, it began as an instrumental though it was always supposed to be a song with a vocal. I played it out at a festival in Belgium and the crowd went nuts! Sian Evans, who I knew from her days as front woman of Kosheen, and I had been talking about working on something together for a while, and it seemed like the perfect track. I had a muffled recording of the chorus with slightly different words, and I had excitedly got out of bed to sing into my phone at about 3 o’clock in the morning one night. When Sian started scatting around it worked perfectly. We changed a few words, notes, etc. and then wrote the verses, the whole song was written like that in just one night!”
