By | Published on Friday 15 January 2016


Benga has made his return to music official with the announcement of new EP ‘Future Funk’, which is due for release on 26 Feb via his own Benga Beats label.

Commenting on the release, the producer says: “It’s been two years and I have grown a lot, and I now know what’s important: music. I’m back and I think my sound is the most ‘me’ it’s been since [2008 album] ‘Diary Of An Afro Warrior’ and I’m super excited to play it and reconnect with all of the people who have supported me”.

Last year, following his 2014 retirement, Benga spoke openly about the struggles with his mental health that led to him putting his music career on hold. He has since called for more discussion and awareness of mental health issues in dance music.
