1. Benji B and his String Ensemble (VIDEO).

    Benji-B-string-2

    BBC Radio 1's Benji B recently went to the historic Maida Vale studios, hopped on the 1-and-2's, all the while accompanied with a 16-piece string ensemble for an all the way live mix. The resulting playlist sounds simply love-love, and posted here for your listening pleasure. When you're done, please help yourself to some behind-the-scenes footage to round out your evening.

      Too much! Saw the Redbull show but this version is actually better as we see the expression on the faces of the musicians.

      Fine wine right there. Thoroughly enjoyed. I like to end my sets with Skyy Can You Feel Me too; I just tend to have one or two fewer stringed instruments backing me.
