came a cross this downlowd for the Benga Newstep album it’s in 2 parts gotta be worth a listen.
Part 1 Part 2
|Widely regarded as one of the founding forefathers of the scene known as
Dubstep, after early heads like El-B and Steve Gurley had laid the
foundations on swung garage beats and post jungle rhythms along came Benga and Big
Apple records. With ‘Newstep’ Benga delivers 15 rhythms previously only
available direct from the man himself, now fully released as an essential
document in the history of dubstep. Stylistically very close to the fruity
flutes and skankin’ bass sound of Skream (with whom he collaborated on ‘the
judgement’ and ‘hydro’ for Big Apple) Benga’s influence is indelibly marked
on the productions of everyone from Omen to Digital Mystikz. There’s no
point in covering the tracks one by one; each and every one is a killer,
definitive article of South London pressure, collated for your pleasure.
