From DJing an intimate New Year's Eve party, to regularly hosting acts like Kaytranada and Jacques Greene on his BBC Radio 1 show, it's no secret Benji B loves Montreal and the city's music.

This week the veteran presenter and Deviation founder took his appreciation one step further, taking over the Phi Centre to host a Montreal artists-only episode, featuring interviews with Lunice, Kaytranada, and Jacques Greene, and guest mixes from A-Trak and Tommy Kruise.

There were plenty of exclusives in the three hour show, including the premiere of Kaytranada's Karriem Riggins-assisted "Bus Ride" (from his highly-anticipated debut album 99.9%) and a track from Kid Koala's upcoming album Music To Draw To.

For those of you who missed the special episode, you can listen to it here.
