Red Bull Studios London presents ‘I Am Benga’
Red Bull Studios London presents ‘I Am Benga’, a new six-part series that takes an exclusive look into the life of Benga, one of the UK’s heavyweight electronic music superstars. The series takes viewers from Benga’s early life in Croydon and the emergence of dubstep, to becoming an electronic tour de force across the globe. Episodes also chart his inauguration at Radio 1, his explosion onto the music scene and move from the underground to household name.
2012 has been an amazing year for Benga; touring not only with Magnetic Man but also progressing a thriving solo career. I Am Benga charts the highlights of his year to date including being flown by helicopter into Snowbombing, releasing a host of new solo tracks from forthcoming album Chapter II, and playing his first ever live solo showcase of new material at London’s KOKO. Long-term relationships with fellow producers Skream and Artwork, and an insatiable drive to take over the world have helped Benga push the genre forward. ‘I Am Benga’ offers a glimpse into the small town roots of an entire movement that is now taking over dance floors globally.
