With what could be your last ever chance to witness one of Drum & Bass’s most successful duo’s, Commix comes to our shores for a tour to test the highly anticipated new album! Headlining the evening we have none other than Friction, a true legend of the scene with some of the biggest releases in Drum & Bass over the past 12months. Friction is not only a well respected producer but also a true bad man on the decks, mixing it up across 3 turntables with lighting speed with impeccable beat matching and tune selection to match….this will be an evening to remember for years to come!!


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 late 90′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 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 or this year as the new face of Radio 1′s flagship Drum & Bass show he is set for even more accolade in 2012 and beyond.

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.


Anyone who was listening to electronic music, and particularly drum & bass, in 2007 will clearly remember the arrival of Commix’ debut album ‘Call To Mind’ released on Goldie’s Metalheadz label. A breath of fresh air amongst a sea of Pendu-clones, the Cambridge duo’s place in drum & bass history was assured from the opening bars and their status as exciting electronic music producers was confirmed with critical acclaim across the board.

But music and art are about evolution, and evolving is precisely what Commix are doing. After the release of ‘Call To Mind’ Commix went to ground, throwing themselves into new methods of working and new ways of thinking. While Metalheadz commissioned a full remix version of ‘Call To Mind’, Commix experimented, ruminated and deliberated to ensure that their second artist album would be a worthy successor to their incredible debut.

To signify the change in outlook Commix will now be known as CMX, a name that represents where Commix has come from and where CMX is going. The new sound of CMX represents freedom promoted through musical expression. Relying less on samples and the familiar drum & bass formula, CMX will embrace new styles and tempos, and a heavy influx of analogue equipment to create a new and exciting musical attitude.
