Seb Rochford is the drummer, band leader and producer of Polar Bear, a multiple Mercury prize nominated experimental jazz band. He also played drums and produced Bee MC’s Society of Sound debut album Cash is King.
He told us: “This is a selection of the music I heard around my house growing up. I have 9 brothers and sisters who all love music. Also my parents do too, so it was normal for me to be surrounded by lots of different music.”
