Sponsored Video: Benga Documentary - Gatwick Express Tracks

It's always great to see a mainstream brand get involved in a culture which is not traditionally considered within it's immediate scope, which is exactly what Gatwick Express have done here. Dubstep don Benga, who has also been behind some grime bangers such as Lethal B/Firecamp's rowdy 'Shut Up', takes us on his musical journey from Victoria to Gatwick.


He has created one of the 'express tracks' which is a 30 minute musical journey, given to you for free when booking a ticket online (quite a novel idea!). Benga had this to say "I try to sit there and think about the ups and downs, and the delays that I used were all about trying to make it feel like a journey. Thirty two minutes, and it’s like an adventure, do you know what I mean?"



Here's a trailer for the Gatwick Tracks series, which features clips of the other tracks, from classical bloke Philip Sheppard and Essex band The Milk.


For website technology geeks, it's definitely worth checking out The Gatwick Express website that uses a cool new type of javascript known as 'Scroll path'. It navigates the journey from an overheard perspective, giving you snippets of the three artists' tracks and maps out the towns that are passed on the way down to the airport! See below for an example...
