When it comes to a Fractious performance/show, this consists of groove based Techno with Loops and effects thrown into the mix to create something different than a usual DJ set.

In 2013 things stated to heat up with Stacey Pullen charting a Fractious remix rocketing it into the Beatport Techno Top 100, Richie Hawtin playing his collaboration with Irregular Synth at the Enter closing party in Space and his next 10 sets, and also regularly finding the likes of Slam, Pan-Pot and Just Be playing Fractious tracks in their sets, Fractious knew he was on the right road. With all this under his belt and constantly hard at work in the studio always creating that new groove, with steady releases coming soon on Gem Records, Pornographic, Loose Records, trapez, Beat Therapy, Dynamo Recordings and gigs planned for Finland and Germany, Fractious is making his own place in the international techno community.
