This episode I host German deejay Martin Welzer, commonly known as dj Friction. Martin was born in 1970 near Stuttgart in Southwest Germany and began mixing and collecting Records in 1985. After competing in various deejay battles (such as the DMC German Championships 1991) he had his first residency in a Club in Stuttgart in 1991. Troughout the 90’s he was mostly known as a Hip Hop deejay and as a member of chart topping Hip Hop Band Freundeskreis. With Freundeskreis he released 2 Studio Albums (incl. the Gold Selling “Esperanto” LP), 1 Live Album and a Best Of Album (FK 10 in 2007). He later released 3 Solo Albums, made countless Remixes (for the likes of The Jackson 5, Das EFX, The Pharcyde, Die Fantastischen Vier, Malente just to name a few) and his current projects include Motor Mouth with Philip König and Bodymovin with DJ Thomilla. Nowadays he’s mostly into Nu-Disco, House, Electro- + Discofunk. As a kid growing up in the 70s and 80s his influences are Discofunk, Electrofunk, Boogie, Soul, Italo Disco, Hip Hop and House.
