Benga And Skream Launch Dubstep Documentary 'I Am Benga' (VIDEO)

Watch: 'I Am Benga'

Benga and Skream took their dub-laden soundtracks to East London last week, playing an intimate - yet still insanely loud - gig at Stoke Newington's Birthdays bar.

Downstairs in the underground bar, the wide-eyed sweaty masses were lapping up everything that came thundering out of the speakers.

The last time I saw Skream I was in a massive tent at Bestival, so the smaller venue was a welcome change, giving an opportunity to see how Skream gets it so right (and at one point, so wrong, resulting in a juddering stop to proceedings).

Skream's tunes had a distinclty more housey edge and the characteristic wobbly bass of the dubstep he is famous for, which only made an appearance towards the end of his set.

With barely a pause it was the turn of Benga.

The headliner was playing to launch the release of his new TV series, 'I Am Benga', a six-part documentary made in collaboration with Red Bull Studios, charting the latest events in his remarkably successful career.

Needless to say the set went down a storm and if you want to hear it for yourself check out his latest album, 'Chapter 2'.

If that isn't enough we've got a little treat for you in the form of the first episode of 'I Am Benga'. Future episodes can be seen here.
