Tempa is a dubstep, 2-step garage and UK garage record label run by Ammunition Promotions, out of the Truman Brewery, East London. Tempa is widely considered to be one of the founding labels of the dubstep sound, and are part of a larger umbrella of labels (including Soulja, Road, Vehicle, Shelflife, Texture, Lifestyle and Bingo) and club events (such as Forward>> held at Plastic People in Shoreditch) run by Ammunition.

Tempa have released music by such dubstep luminaries as Skream, Benga, Truth, Loefah, Coki, Horsepower Productions, Kode9, Headhunter and DJ Hatcha, and were responsible for dubstep's most commercially successful "cross-over" hit, Night by Benga and Coki in late 2007.[1]
