London-based radio host/ DJ for over 15 years, BENJI B is one of the youngest and most influential musical taste-makers of today, whose site Deviation, and his radio show on BBC 1 I've been regularly hitting up for new inspirations. I met Benji through Brooklyn fam Waajeed & Ge-ology a couple of years ago when the three used to do parties together (check Waajeed's interview coming up next, where he's bigging him up big time). This is is the latest of his featured guest interviews I found on the BBC 1 site. Jay Electronica goes deep.

Benji is the resident at the monthly club night he runs in London called Deviation. The Deviation night regularly showcases famous DJs and producers, such as Sa-Ra Creative Partners, Skream, Mark Pritchard, Moodymann, Mala, Marc Mac, MJ Cole, and was the first night in Europe at which Flying Lotus and Dam-Funk played. There have been one-off Deviation nights at Fabric featuring Madlib and J-Rocc and in Madrid, Spain. In March 2010 the night moved from its home at Gramaphone to CAMP on Old Street.
