More about this show

Label Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the labels that have defined the sound of modern music.

From the creation of the label to the development of their sound to the present day, our community look back at the record labels that have had a notable impact on their life.

Launched in 2003, Ben Watt's Buzzin' Fly Records is recognised as a leading-edge imprint in the world of deep house and techno, fostering the careers of young producer-DJs such as Justin Martin, Mademoiselle Caro & Franck Garcia and Rodamaal. Home to Watt's own club productions ('Lone Cat', 'Pop A Cap In Yo' Ass' with Estelle, 'Guinea Pig') it has also drawn defining work from remixers such as Ame, Radio Slave, Charles Webster and John Tejada.
