Episode

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, Alien Izz curates an Artist Focus on Talvin Singh, musician, producer, and composer known as the father of the Asian Underground and producer of the Mercury Prize winning Album OK (1998). During the hour, Izzy plays a selection of his tunes, talks about his musical career and collaborations and speaks about why Talvin Singh is such an important figure in her own life.
