Radio host and DJ, Benji B is best known for his late night radio show 1Xtra in which is covers every genre from hip-hop and rap, to dubstep and electronic garage. Having garnered a great deal of respect from blogs in the past, he recently pushed his praise to new heights after teaming up with arranger Grant Windsor and a string ensemble to interpret some of last years top hits.
Including tracks from the likes of Kanye West, TNGHT, Flying Lotus, Jeremih, Dwele, and many more, the pairing do an incredible job at interpreting each single, and making each full of richness. Recorded inside the iconic Maida Vale studio, it’s no surprise that the strings are at home, but when teamed up with Benji B and his many great selections, each interpretation sounds amazing, including Drake’s smash-hit “Headlines,” which — whether you like it or not — have to agree sounds off the chain when put to the strings! Still don’t believe me? See for yourself below.
