Shogun Audio


4 shouts

Since its inception in 2004 Shogun Audio has gone on to become one of the most essential labels in dance music today. Driven by it’s founders Friction and production partner K-Tee the Shogun brand has developed in such a way that it is now an all-encompassing drum and bass juggernaut releasing anything from the deep and minimal sounds of Icicle to the dirty tech grooves of Break and the tear-out party anthems of Spor and indeed Friction & K-Tee themselves.

Artists to have released music through Shogun include not only their exclusive signings of Alix Perez and Icicle but also the likes of Jonny L, Break, Marcus Intalex, Spectrasoul, Noisia, Klute, Spirit and of course Friction & K-Tee. In doing so the back catalogue has become one of absolute quality in a relatively short space of time.

Aside from the superior A&R skills a major part of the success has of course come from Friction, who has become a household name in drum and bass and dance music over the past five years, and their highly successful club night at the sadly now defunct but legendary End club in London, UK. DJing regularly to thousands around the world it is his passion and ability to entertain any crowd through the broad spectrum of drum and bass that has undoubtedly added to the legions of fans who now follow the Shogun stamp wherever it treads.
