WIN: Benga Signed Vinyl

Good knowledge of Croydon-based record shops? It could win you a beautiful new signed copy of Benga's Chapter II LP

Dubstep innovator Benga released his new album, Chapter II, yesterday. It's his third solo album, and, explaining how his work producing Katy B and Magnetic Man has influenced the new LP, he says: “With 'Katy On A Mission' and 'I Need Air' I learnt how to tighten the structure of what I was doing. I learnt that you can use as many crazy sounds, beats and chords as you like and take people with you. What I’m doing now you wouldn't even call dubstep … The only thing I can call it is Benga music. It is what sounds exactly right to me.”

But - listen up! - we're bringing three lucky readers the opportunity to win a copy of the LP - signed by the man himself. To be in with a chance of winning, e-mail your answer to the following question to comps@thequietus.com, with BENGA in the subject line, by midday Monday 20 May.
