Friction’s ‘Disconnected EP’ bridges the gap between last years debut album ‘Connections’. Having toured since it’s release in September, now is the perfect time to reunite the hysteria of his worldwide DJ sets and his passion for making music designed for the dance floor. The music on show here is a true representation of exactly what you’ll catch every weekend.
As both DJ and Producer, Friction seamlessly blends influences and joins the dots between the dancefloor and the outside world. His ‘Disconnected EP’ acts as a reminder that his energy is relentless and utterly intoxicating.
Having risen steadily through the ranks since the 1990’s as arguably the most adept and most ferocious DJ/producer in the scene, Friction now holds court in the D&B Hall Of Fame thanks to his inauguration at the 2011 Drum & Bass Arena Awards.
Friction has a vast catalogue behind him and has worked with most of the major labels in D&B including Hospital and Metalheadz.
However it was in 2004 when he founded the now infamous record label Shogun Audio that really pushed the Friction name further into the musical limelight.
Whilst DJ’ing all over the world every weekend and heading up the juggernaut record label Shogun Audio Friction has achieved much commercial success but always keeps his feet firmly on the ground, in 2012 he was announced as the new face of Radio 1’s flagship Drum & Bass show.
Friction also completed his debut mix album for Ministry Of Sound in 2010, dropped 2011’s summer smash ‘Someone’ ft Mclean and recent remix credits include Wretch 32 ‘Tractor’ and Example’s ‘Change The Way You Kissed Me’
Described by Pete Tong as ‘one of the big dogs’Friction looks set to hit dizzying new heights in his career this year as he continues to trail blaze his way through the ever-evolving musical landscape.
So whether you’re catching his radio show or a DJ set anywhere from Glastonbury, EDC in LA, to Sydney or Toyko you’ll be sure Friction never disappoints.
