Artist Focus: Warrior Queen

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.

This week, Gracie T from @thebeatriarchy and @daytimers_uk dives into the discography of Annette Henry a.k.a. Warrior Queen. Covering everything from dancehall to garage to dubstep and jungle, Warrior Queen is an iconic pioneer of the Jamaican and British underground music scenes. Gracie T takes you from downtempo dancehall staples to grungy dubstep heaters featuring Warrior Queen from The Bug, Skream, Sunship, Mungo’s Hi-Fi and more.
