Brighton raised, multi award winning Friction is a member of an exclusive club
He is one of a handful of DJ's to have smashed through the ranks and become a superstar in his genre simply through an unbelievable talent behind the decks. This year has seen him add more accolades to his ever increasing CV and is regarded by many as not only the most skilled but the most diverse DJ in drum & bass.
As a teenager Friction played at events and promoted his own club nights much like any other young DJ trying to make a name for himself. He soon linked up with Brighton producers 'Stakka & K-Tee', who were heavily involved with Andy C's Ram Records imprint. Many hours were spent in the studio and in February '99 Friction released his debut single 'Critical Mass' under the name Kinnetix on the 'Under Fire'. Before long Friction received interest from big Drum & Bass record companies such as TOV & Renegade Hardware. He soon produced a track for TOV's 'Here Comes Trouble' EP with the defining track 'Photon'.
Things were most definitely moving for this talented, hugely motivated young man from Brighton. Immediately following that was the acclaimed 'Altitude' with Stakka & Skynet, regarded throughout the scene as a truly ground breaking piece of drum & bass, fusing high energy techno and jungle, helping to start what was regarded by many as the 'Neurofunk' sound.
