CARNIVAL TIME!

This weekend sees the return of the annual Notting Hill and Leeds Carnivals. 

To celebrate, Benji had a bit of a Carnival Mix special on the show.  It featured mixes from Lil Silva, Toddla T, Bryan Gee and Benji himself.  Better get the jerk chicken marinading…

HUDSON MOHAWKE MIX

Hudson Mohawke

Sorry, I’ve been a bit slack updating this week, got caught up in all the rioting horror.

Anyway, here we are now!

The month of August on Benji’s show is a ‘Month of Mixes’ - every show this month has a mix from a different artist. You’ll hear from people like Objekt, James Pants and a Carnival special.

Last week was the turn of Hudson Mohawke, who delivered a fantastic mix. Similar in feel to the amazing Jamie XX mix from earlier in the year on the show.

This week it’s the turn of Maurice Fulton.

Last week on Radio 1, Benji was joined by the one and only Martyn.

Tune in to hear an exclusive preview of his brand new album - Ghost People (due out in November on Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder label).  All I can say is that man got beats!

The full show isn’t available anymore but you can catch some interview clips here…

3AM REQUEST LINE

Taking inspiration from Skream’s famous ‘Midnight Request Line’, we give over an hour of the show to listener requests. 

It probably worked better when Benji was on 1Xtra and he actually did it at midnight, but, not ones to be put off by time constraints, we’ve re-named it 3am Request Line.

RODIGAN ON RADIO 2

I love that Rodigan is hosting a series of 10 shows on Radio 2 dedicated to Reggae.

His show on Kiss is brilliant, and great to have him bring a bit of himself and his knowledge to the Radio 2 audience.

BAMBI TATTOO

Ok, this isn’t strictly audio production, but just a bit of fun. I’ve been scouting round for some tattoo inspiration recently and I love this one.

NEW MARTYN AND TRIM ON BENJI B

Last night on Benji’s Radio 1 show, it was pure mixtape.

Highlights for me included Trim produced by TRC - I Am, and brand new Martyn - Viper, from his forthcoming album.

Also, make sure you seek out the brand new Thundercat tracks from his forthcoming album, fingers crossed we’ll have a session from him soon.

SKEPTA FOR RAS KWAME SHORT FILM

Here’s an example of a short film I shot and edited for Ras Kwame’s show when he was on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra.

It was a two camera shoot, one fixed and one roaming, edited using Final Cut.

HESSLE AUDIO ON RADIO 1

This week on Benji B’s show, we had a Hessle Audio showcase.  Hessle Audio is a label run by Pangaea, Ben UFO and Pearson Sound, who are responsible for putting out some amazing future thinking dance music.

It’s no longer available on iplayer, but seek it out and you will find!
