Benga, one third of bass-group Magnetic Man has told NME that he doesn’t ‘want to be any part of dubstep anymore’.
When questioned why the genre pioneer added “I’ve been seen to say that dubstep is the music of our generation, but that’s now changed. I believe now that certain artists are the future, I don’t want to be any part of dubstep anymore.”
“I think it’s been the fastest genre to become solidified. The only reason dubstep has a bad rep is because it’s become a trend.”
Those artists he’s speaking of are a rather unconventional group of people with Skrillex, Mumford & Sons and of course Magnetic Man getting the nod as being this generations sound!
Candidly adding “What a weird group of people, can you imagine us all in a room together?”
As we see it, maybe he’s right, that you don’t have to be attached to any particular genre to be a celebrated artist, that genres don’t define anyone anymore.
The trio should have a single out before the end of the year as they work hard in the studio towards a full-length album.
