FRICTION [Shogun Audio/UK]
Brighton raised, multi award winning Friction is one of the most revered and recognised names in bass music today. Having risen steadily through the ranks since the early 00's as arguably the most adept and most ferocious DJ/producer in the scene, Friction now holds court in the D&B Hall Of Famethanks 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 andMetalheadz. 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 across 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, he was announced at the start of 2012 as the new face of Radio 1's flagship Drum & Bass show he is set for even more accolades in 2013 and beyond.
Friction's last single release, 'Led Astray' got massive radio support from Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Mistajam, Fearne Cotton, and the whole of club land spending 6 weeks on theRadio 1 playlist at the start of 2012.
His recent remix credits include Wretch 32's 'Traktor',Example's 'Change The Way You Kissed Me', Maverick Sabre's 'These Days', 'YSK' by Jack Beats and 'Love Is All I Got' by Feed Me. All eyes are now firmly focused onFriction's debut album currently in the making.
Described by Pete Tong as "one of the big dogs", Frictionlooks 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.
JOE FORD [Shogun Audio/UK]
Joe Ford is ready to shake up the world of D&B and beyond with his own unique brand of bass music destined for dance floors across the globe.
At just 20 years old Joe leads a new wave of producers currently taking the scene by storm, setting himself apart with an already outrageously accomplished studio skill set and trademark hi-tech drum & bass and dubstep sound tinged with rock, funk and everything in between. Now signed exclusively to Shogun Audio, much is expected from this young upstart.
A DJ, producer and film maker, Rene LaVice is a consummate artist, embracing creativity wherever he finds it and channelling his inspirations into five and a half minute pieces of brilliance. While to many he may be a new name Rene LaVice is without doubt one of the hottest drum & bass producers in the North American scene, having already amassed an impressive catalogue of music that has caught the attentions of BBC luminaries such as Nick Grimshaw, Crissy Criss and Bailey, as well as D&B figurehead and multi-award-winning DJ Andy C.
Linguistics is a South London born and raised MC/recording artist. He began writing lyrics over garage/grime aged 15 after seeing 'Lord of the Mics'. Inspired by the likes of Jehst,Taskforce and other UK Hip-Hop veterans he began writing and recording his own music.
In 2010, living in Bristol, he became heavily involved in the local D&B scene. He quickly made a name for himself performing across the UK with DJ's including Nero, Flux Pavilion, Netsky, Kamo & Krooked, Wilkinson, TC, Sigma,Rockwell, KOAN Sound, Delta Heavy & many more.
In 2012 Linguistics work and career as an MC took off when he was picked up by Friction, the voice of BBC Radio 1'sOfficial D&B Show, to be his MC. Later that year he was voted 'Best Newcomer' at the Drum and Bass Arena Awards.
Since then he has toured extensively alongside Frictionplaying shows across the world including tours in Australia, Canada and Japan and also a number of sets in Ibiza over the summer. As well as some of the worlds biggest festivals -Glastonbury, Global Gathering, Reading & Leeds,Pukkelpop, Tomorrowland, and main stage slot at SW4 to name a few.
