Fricktion is an Award-winning DJ, Music Producer and Engineer. From teaching music in a prison to performing at some of the world’s biggest venues, Fricktion’s rich and diverse music career has led him to become one of the most popular faces in London’s music scene. 

Having grown up in Birmingham UK to Punjabi parents, Fricktion started collecting records at the age of 10 and began his career as a DJ in high school before moving to London at the age of 18 to pursue his passion to produce music. After moving to London, Fricktion released a series of concept-driven mixtapes hosted by WuTang Clan and Big Sean. Endorsed by Snoop Dogg and Xzibit, his project ‘California Love’, hosted by Kendrick Lamar himself pays homage to the profound legacy of the 90s Westcoast Hip-Hop scene. 

The highly acclaimed Golden Chamber Mixtape hosted by Wu-Tang was given a flawless 10/10 rating in XXL Magazine and Fricktion was subsequently voted UK’s Best Mixtape DJ. 

Citing Dr. Dre, Quincy Jones, A.R. Rahman and Timbaland as his biggest inspirations, Fricktion continued to nurture his passion for music production and took the leap to move to Los Angeles where he was mentored by Wutang Clan rap legend, RZA and assisted a then up-and-coming Kendrick Lamar on the song ‘Ronald Reagan Era’ from his Section 80 LP.

Consecutively Nominated as Best DJ at London’s Club awards, Fricktion has taken on some of the most coveted residences at London’s most exclusive nightclubs, including Tape, Cirque Le Soir and Toy Room along with being the Official DJ for all Misfits – DAZN/X SERIES Influencer Boxing Fights.
