Shogun Audio

Publié le par eastrip

Depuis sa création en 2004, Shogun Audio est bien parti pour devenir un des labels les plus incontournables. Conduit par ces fondateurs Friction et K-Tee, Shogun s'est développé d'une telle façon qu'il est devenu un poids lourd de la Drum'n'Bass en sortant des sons deep et minimaux (Icicle), des grooves dirty tech (Break), et en produisant les hymnes de Spor et les hits de créateurs eux-mêmes: Friction et K-tee.

 

Shogun incluent non seulement les signatures exclusives d'Alix Perez et Icicle, mais aussi Jonny L, Break, Marcus Intalex, Spectrasoul, Noisia, Klute, Spirit et bien sûr Friction et K-tee. Les maxis déjà parus sont devenus synonyme de classique et ce en un laps de temps très court.

 

Le succès du label est venu d'abord de Friction, qui est devenu  très connu dans le milieu de la Drum'n'Bass grâce à leurs soirées au légendaire End Club à Londres. Mixant régulièrement dans le monde entier, ils sont connu pour leur capacité à chauffer n'importe quelle foule.

 

2009 aura été la plus grande année du label avec le premier volume de la tout-nouvelle série de mix de Friction, 'l'Assassin', qui a reçu beaucoup de critiques favorables et l'album d'Alix Perez, '1984', qui est considéré par plusieurs comme l'album Drum'n'Bass 2009. Ajoutez à ceux-ci les singles de Spor et Break, et une pléïade de prestigieux fans comme Goldie, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac et Grooverider.

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 business 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.

 

2009 was the camp's biggest year yet with the first volume of Friction's all-new mix series, 'Assassin', released to much critical acclaim and the landmark debut album from Alix Perez,'1984', regarded by many as the drum & bass album 2009. Add to these a slew of massive singles from Spor and Break amongst others, a successful new Shogun club night in their home town of Brighton, a string of high profile fans like Goldie, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and Grooverider and there's no question that Shogun Audio was riding very high indeed.

 

So now as we move into 2010 Shogun promises even more musical goodness with the start of the brand new 'Evolution' EP series and a host of great releases lined up from the likes of Total Science & Spy, Spinline and the much hyped Rockwell. There's even the mouth-watering possibility of an Icicle album and also new beats from label-head and all round good guy Friction, who's finally found a little time amongst his hectic DJ schedule to get back in the studio and create some more dance floor killers! So make sure you keep it locked for 2010 and keep it Shogun Audio.
