Benga Announces Return With Teaser of New Music & Album

Many people immediately associate dubstep with artists like Skrillex and Flux Pavilion, but the genre initially got its signature elements from a different breed of producers and djs. One of dubstep's founding fathers, Benga, often collaborated with Skream to release forward-thinking bass music in the early 2000s. As dubstep's popularity waned, Skream began to produce deep house and nu-disco while Benga retired to cement his role as a father and husband.

Almost a year later, Benga announced on Twitter that new music would be coming soon, indicating the end of the producer's retirement. Teasing a new song called "Shut It Down," Benga also announced a new album.

Listen to the "Shut It Down" teaser below:
