Benji B is a living legend, and has made his name almost entirely with his ear. He’s one of a small handful of artists that’s known for his taste in music and skill as a DJ, and has landed himself on BBC without any major production credits to his name. His catalog is one of the best in the game, as that coveted BBC spin is one of the few accolades that still has merit and value in 2013. You can tell that the man guts his inbox with pride, and I relate on a deep level to his love for bass music. And though house music serves as the bookends to this mix, we hear standards from Tessela, Joy Orbison, Breakage, Kingdom, S-X, TNGHT, A$AP Ferg, Kanye West, and tons more. It’s certainly safe to say that Benji B came correct in bringing his “Deviation” brand to RBMA and The Panther Room last week, and we’re incredibly proud to be able to give you guys the exclusive listen on this one before it’s public over at RBMA Radio We’re imagining they have the whole evening recorded, and that a Juan Atkins mix is lying in wait as well. Keep it locked. We’re pouncing when we see it.
