30 minutes of Bass education #3

30 minutes of Goth-Trad

His breakthrough came with the Mad...

EshOne x FatKidOnFire

“There are always going to be Ups & Downs”

EshOne x FatKidOnFire

"The elk (or wapiti) is one of the largest species of the Cervidae or deer family in the world, and one of the largest land mammals in North America and eastern Asia." Fittingly enough, elk-obsessed EshOne's sound, one we've featured before, is almost as large as the land mammal he named his record label...

Demon – Demon EP

FKOF Review

After our write up of Truth's How Strange EP on Tempa last week I wasn't sure if there was another of the big labels to add to our FKOF Promo feature hit list. And then N-Type got in touch with Wheel & Deal's next release... For those of you who've followed FKOF over the years, you'll know we...

RIP Cris Fern

Cris Fern – The Groove

[Artist Highlight]

We've written about Chris ‘Cris Fern’ Ferrantello many, many times here on FatKidOnFire since we first discovered his music.

Lost - Body Bag EP (RVR002)

Lost – Body Bag EP

FKOF Review

Dubstep has evolved significantly since the early days. If you've spent longer than 30 seconds following FKOF you'll know that. But it's the rate of change over the past 12-18 months that has really caught my attention. New producers coming through, new labels popping up seemingly every week and the sound...

30 minutes of Bass education #2

30 minutes of Cyrus

A Bass Education

Cyrus has been around since the early 2000s, part of the Croydon crowd who were instrumental in creating what has become today's dubstep sound. With a (mostly vinyl) release catalogue stretching back to 2007 - and a few imprints to his name - Cyrus is a valuable addition to our efforts in bringing you an...
