Welcome back to Selections, a series of exclusive artist-curated Spotify playlists from those in the know
One of the most hardworking men in electronic music, Benji B kickstarted his career at the age of 14, after approaching Gilles Peterson in a club in the mid-90s. By the time he was in college, he was producing Peterson’s shows and straight after, he was conducting interviews for Something Else after being headhunted by Jez Nelson.
Since, he’s been roped in for a solo show on BBC 1Xtra and set up the audacious club residency Deviation, which has booked everyone – from Floating Points to Flying Lotus and Skepta.
This playlist provides great insight into the tastemaker’s collection. The radio one show host selects a range of cuts from Badbadnotgood, SZA, Steve Lacey, Smerz and Hunee amongst others. Scroll down for two hours of tracks handpicked by Benji B himself.
Benji B appears at The Warehouse Project, Manchester on 30 September
