There are a number of talented DJs in the drum & bass realm, but Friction easily takes the cake. Anyone on the flagship drum & bass show on BBC Radio 1 turns into the face of the scene; we're just happy that Friction's selection is diverse enough to satisfy the masses. He's been one of the most technically skilled DJs, and has patiently waited for his time to shine; as the head of Shogun Audio, and a producer who's working on his own album, Friction's time on the sideline was well worth it.
