One of the major names in the world of dubstep, producer Benga was born Beni Uthman in East London. Hearing the dark work of 2-step producer Wookie inspired him to join part of the grime/garage scene that would eventually evolve into dubstep. Hanging out at the Big Apple Records store in Croydon introduced him to fellow dubstep producer Skream. When the store began its own label, Benga released his debut 12", "Skank," in late 2002, followed by his full-length debut, Newstep, in 2006. In 2007, he moved to the Tempa label and issued a strong pair of singles, both of which ended up on his 2008 album, Diary of an Afro Warrior. ~ David Jeffries
