Benji B – Deviation Show, J Dilla Inspirations Selections

Science dropped by Martini & Jopparelli. Jun-19-2007

Yet another mix! We are close to celebrate 150000 contacts so we must please you with something exclusive. My choice this time goes to J Dilla. Yeah, what a genius! Everything has been written and told about his figure, that is why I am not going to say anything else than: thank you, your legacy will last forever.

Benji B is a British DJ and radio presenter. He used to work with Gilles Peterson. First for Kiss FM than they moved to BBC 1. Today he present his own Radio show called Deviation on BBC 1xtra which is broadcast every Thursday. I really love how he runs the show. This guy makes you feel comfortable with his lovely selection, nice and slow, dropping great tunes and sharing knowledge. He speaks a few during his show, but it won’t bother your listening.

Songs by, sampled from and inspired by J Dilla. Give us some props!

    awesome mix, but it’s in mpeg format. i’m quite stupid about this sort of thing, but how would i convert it to mp3 so i can’t only listen to it on the computer?

  2. joppa says:

    You can download and install WINLAME, a free software that lets you convert FROM every format TO mp3…. it should be easy to use. Let us know!

    You can find it at:
