Benji B’s Crossed Paths Mix
The BBC Radio 1 DJ and Deviation co-founder shares his mix with tracks inspired by Morgan Simpson and Pa Salieu's musical journeys.
Last month, the worlds of two musicians collided. As part of Burberry’s TB Summer Monogram campaign, rising Coventry rapper Pa Salieu and black midi drummer Morgan Simpson joined forces to create a one-of-a-kind zine and live performance of Salieu’s Betty, caught on camera.
In conversation, the pair drew upon their musical influences from the likes of Stevie Wonder to Jimi Hendrix and spoke on how their cultural backgrounds have lead them to the forefront of the industry.
