The Melodic Distraction family circle is growing every day! We’re nothing without the show hosts, associates, partners, friends and, of course, the listeners tuning in each and every day. We’ve got some serious stuff on the bubble over the summer months and beyond, and like a cute lil snek in tropical adolescence, we’ve outgrown our […]

The ONLY way is Upitup. That’s the word on the cobbles this weekend as Merseyside veterans, Upitup Records, bring a two-day anniversary party to North Shore Troubadour and the Kazimier Garden. Ready the cake, prep the candles; it’s time for the international DJ and arts collective, independent record label, party and radio show to celebrate […]

It’s good to be back! After a small hiatus, our monthly New Wax feature returns…this time, for good.

On The Corner is a new weekend event  celebrating the local and national musicians at the forefront of the UK’s exploding jazz scene. A jazz festival that steps firmly into the future whilst paying homage to the past… Combining the […]

Entitled NRG, the three-tracker is a club focused EP with clinical percussive elements and the signature central groove that make […]

Record Store Day is the one day of the year when over 200 independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture. For its upcoming 11th iteration (Saturday 21st April), Rag’n’Bone Man has been selected as UK ambassador for the event that’s become something of a second Christmas for self-professed […]

Ilija Rudman has been a leading force on the underground disco and house scene for the past 15 years, in both production as well as Djing. His latest release, Paradigma, out 16th April on Imogen Recordings offers a rich blend of blissful balearic boogie that serves well for home listening as-well-as the club. An eight track […]

This Saturday, the Melodic Distraction team will be travelling up the M62 to Manchester for a ten-hour takeover of the MCR Live airwaves. Joining us are a host of musical companions from Melodic Distraction Radio, hand-selected by the good folks at MCR Live. To top this all off, MCR Live will be bringing a crew […]

The more eagle-eyed of you out there may have noticed that the Melodic Distraction window shutter has recently been given a colourful make-over. After a handful of wet and rainy false starts, Leeds-based visual artist and DJ, Cress Cooper, AKA Chris Cooper, adorned our metallic façade with a damn fine mural, inspired by the paradigm […]
