UKG and dubstep originator Benny Ill launches Good 4 Ya with two exceptional originals and two equally heavyweight remixers. "Sugar" is as sweet as it sounds; spacious, laced with Chicago style house chords and a sexy sense of hypnosis before man like Zed Bias enters the fray and murks up the groove with a 2001-era squelchy bass and a bit of crushed break for good measure. Flip for the horsepowered 4x4 jam "Triple S". Thumping relentlessly into the light with more US-flavoured synth work, it's a tune you could just as easily imagine in Shelter back in the early 90s as you could in FWD in the early 2000s and any era since. The mighty El-B closes the show with more of a darker two-step twist while retaining the jazzy pep of the chords. Four cuts, three bonafide originators, one essential record.
