UK dubstep heavy-weight and a central part of the original generation, Benga released a track a while ago titled “I Will Never Change” (in a awesomely blatant assertion of I-don’t-give-a-fuckery in the face of bass music’s latest trends and evolutions). As with all music genres and categories, bass music has grown far-extending branches and combined with all sorts of other things, resulting on the one hand in its inevitable popification; and on the other in its heavyfication. Although Benga has experimented and included evolutions and experiments in his music, producing genre-breaking tracks such as “Electro West” (with fellow dubstep father Skream) this track is simply his testament to the fact that there is still a huge spot for the original generation sound of bass music.
Benga straight up disregards new moves to lighten and popularise the sound by the pop influence, and the attempts at trying to make the sound heavier and more extreme. Keeping true to the original elements of the genre, the track is complemented by an awesome music video, produced by Liz Kessler and directed by London studio Us.
