With a massive success on the first episode Friction are backing it up with one of Melbourne’s active locals, SANCTUM.

SANCTUM emerged as a young and passionate DJ in early 2017 with an unrelenting thirst for self-improvement and musical exploration. This ambition lead to the foundation of EQUINOX, where SANCTUM and the Equinox crew bring together a collective of like-minded creatives who express their talents through music, art, and events.

Currently he is running ‘Circus Sundays’ with his colleagues Le’Bruh, JMCEE and fütwerk, and makes regular appearances at his residency, Revolver Upstairs. Opening for the international talent Alex Stein, taking over from Berlin’s youANDme, and supporting the likes of Extrawelt, Marcus Homm, Madmotormiquel, and Jacky.

His personal favourite moments in the booth have been at Bablyon Festival 2018 and Burning Seed 2017, where he has relished in the opportunity to explore a more personable sound, predominantly in the realms of deep-driving melodic techno. Primed to take his career to the next level as he works away in the studio, SANCTUM has launched into 2018 empowered by his fiery and enthusiastic passion for music.

B-tham the host of Friction is super glad to be bringing in one of Melbourne’s budding artists, and have a chat about whats happening in our fine city. Tune in on Wed at 10PM and catch up on the latest episode below.
