MUSIC: Live and Direct from London – Deviation’s Benji B
BBC Radio 1’s beloved DJ Benji B is the focus of attention in an innovative, fresh video series, produced by electronic music upstart THUMP in tandem with Shoreditch hotspot XOYO. The first episode finds Benji B in his element _ talking about music and his popular cutting-edge club night Deviation, which redefines future soul with guests representing Hip Hop, electronic, funk and beyond.
By the way, if you haven’t heard about THUMP yet I’m sure you will. Just launched this year, it’s a new electronic music and culture channel from VICE, in partnership with Recreation Worldwide. According to THUMP’s site, it chronicles “every aspect of the global dance music movement: the music, the artists, the fans, the experience.” You’ll find lots of original videos, exclusive DJ mixes and “a unique portal into the culture of electronic music.”
