Friction's Shogun Audio label has had a spectacular 2013 with releases coming from Alix Perez, Rockwell, Spectrasoul and Artificial Intelligence to name a few.
As well as hosting nights in London and Brighton this year, they added to their already impeccable list of artists, snapping up young Harrogate-based producer Joe Ford to join their team.
With previous material on Bad Taste and Hospital Records offshoot Med School, he's found himself garnering well-deserved attention within the drum 'n' bass world and his affiliation with Shogun will no doubt see his unique, forward-thinking bass productions progress even further.
His track 'Stride' is on Shogun's 'Way Of The Warrior 2' compilation while 'Instrument' will appear on 'Shogun Audio Presents: 2013' and the youngster has now turned in an exclusive mix for Mixmag.
'Shogun Audio Presents: 2013' is out on December 1 and you can catch Joe Ford at the 'Way Of The Warrior 2' launch in London tonight
