Benny Ill was a key figure in the evolution of dubstep, a producer whose open-minded approach to bass saturation cracked open system culture for a fresh generation.
A key part of Horsepower Productions for two decades now, he's twisted and turned club tropes to suit his own end, developing a seminal catalogue in the process.
Still pushing barriers in 2020, Benny Ill stepped into the mix for Clash, delivering a heavyweight selection.
Opening with a back to back set of Orson remixes, he matches some exclusive dubs against some twisted club takes on reggae favourites.
