BBC Introducing on Friction!

Bobby Friction | 01:39 UK time, Wednesday, 15 September 2010

The Friction show is about many things, and there are many things that make up the Friction show.  Of course music, and a complete love of it is the mantra I often repeat on air when talking about why we broadcast, and a multi-genre approach means the show is a veritable rainbow of sounds and audio...but if there was one thing that defines what the show is all about it would have to be BBC Introducing.  The home of new music, unsigned artists and under the radar music across the BBC can be found on most BBC networks as either features or full-on shows and on the Asian Network it manifests itself on my show every single night as 'BBC Introducing on Friction'.

 

 

 

Over the last 4 years since the show started we have "introduced" over 170 new art ists and played almost five times as many tracks from them.  Some of the artists are now Desi household names, whilst others have faded without a trace apart from some terrifyingly good work that I still play on the show.  We are rightly proud of BBC Introducing on Friction and four years into its existence we think the time is right to blow our own trumpets! (Not a euphemism..)

 

All this week I'm playing tracks from my one hundred top 'BBC Introducing on Friction' artists as well as playing out two very special sessions we recorded at the world famous Maida Vale studios.
