White Room to Renovate This Weekend in Preparation for Next Week's Dubstep Extravaganza
As anyone who knows dubstep knows, Skream and Benga are pretty much the genre's founders, and certainly two of those most responsible for the music's impending ubiquity. The boys from Croydon, South London, both have relatively huge crossover hits to their credit -- Skream's 2005 "Midnight Request Line" and Benga's 2008 "Night" -- and a worldwide fan base. In fact, the lads have spent most of the last year roaming the globe and spreading the message.
Now they come to the MIA in what is reportedly their first South Florida appearance together. Joining them at White Room will be local electro operative Damaged Goods and former Blacksheep honcho Juan Basshead.
So don't be alarmed if you show up at White Room this weekend and only
