Who is Benga?

Benga is a British musician from Croydon, known for being the pioneer of dubstep record production. As a teenager he used to hang out at the Big Apple record shop in Croydon and make his own tunes at home on a 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.
