Benzi shares ninth summer installment of ‘Get Right Radio’
Among the east and west coast DJ circles, trading Benzi edits is almost like a right of passage. He gives his fans transparent access to an endless trove of personalized reworks and hand-crafted remixes, and throughout the year gifts fans with updates to his famous Girl Trapz mix series. Though, once a year since 2008, in the thick of the summer swelter, Benzi blesses the masses with his annual Get Right Radio tradition. In fact, according to radio co-host Diplo, summer “doesn’t even start until Benzi hits the radio.” Now, the TWRK proponent has dropped off his highly-anticipated 2017 summer mixtape, packing an hour-long session with an arsenal of his coveted setlist igniters.
Premiered on Diplo and Friends, Benzi’s latest installment of Get Right Radio covers ground from Dej Loaf to Daft Punk, with additions from Flosstradamus, Panic City, Eli Escobar, Low Steppa, Calvin Harris, and Kaytranada. Crafting a tracklist of over 40 selects, broken up by inventive personal edits, the Get Right Records head honcho features everyone from Chance The Rapper to Busta Rhymes, Major Lazer to Childish Gambino for what could legitimately be one of the hottest mixtapes of the year.
