Benga  

music producer from Croydon.

Benga (born Adegbenga Adejumo, 28 November 1986) is a British dubstep music producer from Croydon. As a boy he used to hang out at the Big Apple record shop in Croydon and make his own tunes at home on 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". In 2007 Benga, along with fellow producers Skream and Artwork, formed the dubstep supergroup Magnetic Man. Benga released the cross-over anthem "Night" with DMZ's Coki in early 2008, followed by his second album, Diary of an Afro Warrior, both on Tempa. Resident Advisor described it as "one of the most anticipated LPs in dubstep yet."
