Caspa

Sub Soldiers Salute

Caspa x FatKidOnFire

Most of you will be able to trace the producers who first got you into dubstep. I had a fairly slow time getting into the sound back in the day - but the following interviewee was one of two artists responsible for cementing my love for the dubstep sound. In 2007, Gary 'Caspa' McCann partnered with...

Less Effort

Put Less Effort into the boring parts of life

Less Effort x FatKidOnFire

Although the majority of our newer fanbase may not know it, FKOF started as an effort to support the independent musicians, brands and characters doing things I liked the look of. While the majority of our focus now lies with the music side of things, I'm still very much keen on the idea of being an...

Pig & Rig

Great tasting food & good quality music

Pig&Rig x FatKidOnFire

The following may strike you as a somewhat strange addition to the content archive here on FatKidOnFire. But having discovered Pig&Rig during a (somewhat offtrack) planning session for my wedding next year*, their story of good food, sound system culture and a healthy dose of entrepreneurism struck...

30 minutes of Bass education #9

30 minutes of Silkie

A Bass Education

Silkie and smooth are two words that have always gone well together. It's a natural pairing. For most of his fanbase, Solomon 'Silkie' Rose effortlessly embodies the smooth musical Beauty in dubstep. Silkie's start followed the path of many early dubstep producers, trying his hand at...

Alpha & Omega - ZAMZAM23

Alpha & Omega – Roll River Jordan Roll

FKOF Review

We've teamed up with our new friends at the superb ZamZam Sounds imprint to celebrate their upcoming release. And ZAMZAM23 is definitely an all-star drop from the USA's West Coast dub pioneers and a pretty killer artist line up... 'Alpha & Omega return to ZamZam with a powerful missive...

Born In Flamez

Born In Flamez – Polymorphous

FKOF Review

It's not often you discover a eclectic mix of musical influences that actually works when combined. It happens, but it's rare. Having first discovered Born In Flamez on Boiler Room earlier this year, it immediately struck me that the androgynous musician might be a good example of this...

Dub-Stuy Records

Echo Chamber V

Dub-Stuy Records Present

It's been a pretty quiet week here on FatKidOnFire (more on that soon) - but we're starting the weekend with a bang! Earlier this year, we collaborated with TUBA and Brooklyn's Paperbox for our first event on US soil. Tonight, our friends in the world-renowned Dub-Stuy crew are launching their...

Matty G - Photo by Jeremy Conant

Yeah, yeah I’m still about

Matty G x FatKidOnFire

He's been quiet for longer than a hot minute, but if his mix for us here at FatKidOnFire is anything to go by, Matty G's back, raring to go and is once again a force to be reckoned with. About damn time. Having joined forces with longtime collaborator J:Kenzo for his first release on Artikal...

30 minutes of Bass education #8

30 minutes of Coki

A Bass Education

Some may say the beauty of dubstep lies in its moodiness and meditational vibe. This, perhaps, implies meditation cannot be achieved by raw, aggressive energy. But you'd be wrong to assume this implication is the case. If there is a producer that embodies this raw and aggressive side of dubstep, it is...
