Artist Focus: 4hero

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.

For this edition Roo, one half of killer female collective Shifting Spheres, dives into the immense discography of legendary production duo 4hero, aka Marc Mac & Dego.

Having made a name for themselves through their pioneering breakbeat, hardcore & jungle productions in the early 1990s, the pair are also responsible for some of the most forward thinking broken beat and nu jazz sounds out there, across a multitude of different aliases.

Join Roo as she faces the unenviable task of condensing the pairs’ fantastic careers into just sixty minutes!
