Multi-award winning drum & bass producer, Friction, has unveiled his brand-new production, the dynamic single, ‘Dancing’ taken from his upcoming new ‘Connections’ album, released on 7th September.

The Brighton-born DJ, who has cemented a reputation as one of the most adept and ferocious artists in the scene, teams up with acclaimed vocalist JP Cooper on the track, with the latter lacing the high tempo rumbler with his silky tones.

Released on Friction’s very own label, Elevate Records, ‘Dancing’ has been christened as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on her BBC Radio 1 show, and follows Friction’s recent remix of Fatboy Slim classic, ‘Right Here, Right Now’.

Joined by JP Cooper, the singer/songwriter has garnered a reputation as one of UK’s most in-demand and fast-rising talents, receiving critical acclaim on his uplifting ballad ‘September Song’ and platinum-selling Jonas Blue collaboration, ‘Perfect Strangers.’

Having hosted his own drum and bass show on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, Friction has also produced under his alter-ego, ‘FineArt’, focusing more on bassline and house, where he launched Maraki Records alongside My Nu Leng.

A true juggernaut of the drum & bass world, the British producer’s remix credits include a wealth of star-studded names, including Wretch 32, Childish Gambino, Example, Maverick Sabre and Feed Me.

Set to cause damage across dance floors worldwide, ‘Dancing’ dropped on 22nd June.
