The pioneering producers continue to fan the flames of a hotly anticipated reunion.
Among the foremost innovators of dubstep and bass music, Skream and Benga have long been a celebrated collaborative force, but it’s been nearly 12 years since we last heard from them. A little over a year ago, the anticipation of a comeback began to brew, especially after Skream confirmed he and Benga had amassed a trove of at least a dozen unreleased tracks.
Now, the first teaser of new music has come to light, which Skream has dubbed “Skream and Benga 2.0.” With heavy analog arpeggiation and quivering vocal layers, the snippet is a fascinating glimpse into what could be a very different chapter from the U.K. pioneers.
The story goes beyond just new music, however. Benga chimed into the conversation to tease the idea of an upcoming world tour alongside Skream, signaling that plans are likely well in motion behind the scenes.
“We would be playing new dubstep that sounds like us!” Benga added.
Despite the excitement surrounding a potential world tour, it’s important to note that neither Skream nor Benga have formally confirmed one at the time of writing.
