DJ Fresh has revealed that he is working with Linkin Park on new material.

The Drum n' Bass producer, who topped the charts with Rita Ora on 'Hot Right Now' earlier this year, let slip his plans with the metal band during an interview with the Daily Star.

Trying to keep schtum, DJ Fresh said: "I can’t really say much about it yet as we’re not sure whose record it will be for.”"

The collaboration, first mentioned earlier this year, could be for the next DJ Fresh album or as part of whatever Linkin Park come out with next. Either way it shows the ever increasing profile of EDM and bands moing toward new sounds to star relevant.

That said, DJ Fresh has said that he is in no great hurry to break America, saying: "I’ve seen so many people chase the American dream, but I’ve never been even slightly concerned with that. My main focus is to make people dance and if people in America like it they do and if they don’t they don’t."

Linkin Park topped the UK Album Chart earlier this year with their latest album 'Living Things'.
