Long before he took over for Mary-Anne Hobbs on Radio 1 Benji B was rocking the wheels of steel on the British airwaves in one of the dopest shows on BBC 1Xtra. His show then and now scours the edges of various genres from hiphop to dubstep to soul and back, everything in between included. He still manages to make the whole thing flow naturally and on October 13th he brought his game to the top of the London Eye where he mixed a set impressively backed with of live strings by Deviation String Quartet. There are tracks by Joy Orbison, Erykah Badu, Jay Electronica, Drake, Weezy, Burial, Raphael Saadiq, Slum Village and many others. Sounds awesome? That’s because it is.
