Benga

Genre: Dubstep

Benga is a dubstep music producer from Croydon, south London, although he was born in east London. As a boy he used to hang out at the Big Apple record shop in Croydon and make his own tunes at home on his Playstation. The tunes caught the attention of dubstep producer Hatcha, who worked at the shop, and by the age of 15 Benga had made his first record, "Skank", released on Big Apple's own record label. He was also one of the first dubstep producers when the style was emerging in the early 2000s. He has been featured on a variety of compilations including Mary Anne Hobbs's Warrior Dubz, Tempa's The Roots of Dubstep and the BBC Radio 1Xtra anniversary mix. Benga is also noted for using acoustic drums on some songs, including "Live Drums" and "Evolution". - Wikipedia
