2011 repress. Without any question, this was THE dubstep anthem of 2007, possibly even a bigger anthem than Skream's legendary late 2005 "Midnight Request Line." This 12" release heralds the graduation of Benga, from the name in every dubstep DJ's bag to an artist whose acclaim reaches much farther than that of his own genre. "Night" is a joint effort from Benga and one half of DMZ, Coki. When the South London pair got together, they were on a mission to depart from the sound of previous productions and what resulted is a crazily infectious melody. "Drumz West" features Benga's trademark snare, forcing the listener to continuously shift focus between the skank-inducing bass line and the melody of the synths. The final track, "Emotions" showcases Benga's versatility, revealing his affinity with house music. It's perhaps this last track, which will raise most eyebrows outside of dubstep circles.
