Benga (born Adegbenga Adejumo), is a dubstep music producer from Croydon, South London. He was born in Beni Uthman in East London. He is part of the Tempa and Big Apple Records 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." From January 2011, Benga joined BBC Radio 1 with Skream as part of 'In New DJ's We Trust'. Skream and Benga will be performing together at Field Day music festival in Sydney, Australia on New Years Day 2012.
