only found out cos I was jamming his music and decided to look up his facebook
Digging: Azealia Banks - Broke With Expensive Taste
I mean judging by his recent output it's good he called it quits instead of going even further downhill
but still RIP man was incredible when he was on
he isn't dead will
but if he's engaged he may as well be soon (hahaha!)
and RIP in the metaphysical sense (?)
and I really hope I wouldn't make that comment if he actually died haha
none of his stuff really vibed with me (heresy), but he's still a legend that will be missed
Diary of an Afro Warrior was alright. Sucks that he's retiring.
Diary of an Afro Warrior is fucking amazing IMO, easily one of my favorite dubstep full-lengths. But I definitely wouldn't say it sucks that he's retiring, I lost interest in his output ages ago and it's a good sign of his priorities that he's quitting to be a family man - best of luck to him.
yeah Diary of an Afro Warrior is sick
That jazzy touch that it has, damn:
Shame :/ Night was the first dubstep song I've ever heard. Shit was cash
I liked Diary of an Afro Warrior too. All I can say is "Cheers!", because life is full of endings through changes.
Digging: Madred - Supersonic Brainfuck Overdrive
Diary Of An Afro Warrior is one of my favorites
Can't believe Afro Warrior doesn't have a review, I might have to change that eventually because it definitely deserves one.
Quitting Dj'ing doesn't imply that he's retiring, he could still produce (as in, just not traveling away from home)
At the end of the day though no one has fallen off quite like Benga, so sadly it's good riddance
Digging: Hyperdub - Hyperdub 10.4
I suppose that's true, though I think it does kind of sound as though he's ready to move on from a music career.
Nice dig BTW, I'm hoping to have a review up for that soon.
Well yeah it could be that he is actually officially retiring, God knows Benga has a hard time reaching the point of any conversation - seriously, watch any recent interview with him. Nothing he says makes a single lick of sense in regards to the questions he's being asked
It wasn't very clear... But the way everyone reacted, even people like his friend Skream, was as if this were an all round thing
Yeah, not too bummed about this news tbh.
His early stuff was really good tho.
I feel like it'd be different for a DJ, he could probably do a local show here and there. You don't really need to rehearse with a band or anything haha.
Also, his grammar lol
lol this guy
