Melodic Distraction Resident Mix #004 – Tom Lye

Mixes straight from our residents either recorded live at our parties or in private jam sessions. Enjoy some of our DJ’s favourite music without having to search around.

Next up in our resident mix series we’re listening to the sounds of Tom Lye, Liverpool and Sheffield based selector and resident at Don’t Look Now as well as Melodic Distraction.

Between selecting tracks for many nights around Liverpool and running Sheffield based event Don’t Look Now we managed to catch up with Tom Lye for an exclusive resident mix ahead of his involvement with some exciting new Melodic Distraction ventures. His broad musical interest and expansive range of music tastes shine through in this eclectic resident mix, showcasing some newcoming artists that are rising quickly. Be sure to check him out on our new radio show which will be commencing in the next few weeks…
