Watch a String Ensemble Perform Songs by Kanye West, Drake, TNGHT and Others

DJ Benji B merged the disparate genres of dance and classical music this week during an hour-long special for BBC Radio 1. B compiled a selection of major electronic and hip-hop songs and, with help from writer/composer Grant Windsor, set in motion an orchestral reinterpretation.

Over the course of the program, Windsor leads a string section as they play their way through Drake, the GOOD Music crew, TNGHT, Flying Lotus and more. Watch the whole thing up above and look over the tracklist below.
