In an ambitious statement during an interview with Skiddle, Benga argued that dubstep had the potential to be bigger than house music and was not just a passing phase. Magnetic Man’s Benga asserted – “I feel like with the people that are pushing the scene and their ambition, I feel like it is going to be as big as house if not bigger. It's the music of this generation and people from all over the scene are loving it – it's game over.”
Musical tastemakers have been foreshadowing the eventual dilution of hardcore dubstep as the genre gains more mainstream exposure. Benga shines a positive light at the end of the tunnel and rightly states, "If we want to keep things moving then we will, we really will. It's like people always say a genre is going to die if this happens or that happens, but it's not really the big names that push things forwards, it's the artists inside of it because this is what we do. It won't become a fad." Whether or not dubstep becomes bigger than house is debatable; only time can tell.
