It is incredible that no one has ever left a comment about this label - but also indicative of how consistently overlooked Anthony Shakir has been.

Maybe it's because the label came to life at a time when the original Detroit labels had slowed down, or because the focus of techno had shifted to Berlin - but a label run by one of the greatest producers of all time deserves acknowledgement.

Frictional's output is as innovative, idiosyncratic and detached from trends as Shake himself. The first 10 releases especially contain some of the most challenging, forward-thinking techno, balancing perfectly sculpted beats with complex rhythms, dynamic propulsion with a sense of melancholy - all delivered with flawless sound design and arrangement.

Frictional is a label that truly moves the body and the mind.
