Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album.
Artist Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.
In this episode, DJ 2Kind shares the music of Pete Rock and CL Smooth, New York hip-hop duo whose monumental second album 'Mecca and the Soul Brother' came out in 1992.
