Introducing Steph aka Yellakins

Diversity in Dubstep #3

NB: the usual SSL caveat applies – add ‘:’ into any broken links and they’ll work for you!  There've been peaks and troughs of content here on FKOF over the last 10 years, but it seems kind of fitting that in the 10th year we get to the 1,000th post on the blog. Even more fitting that the...

DEEP MEDi x Teachings in Dub

Last week, I packed myself into a suitcase and headed to the station for 48 hours of very little sleep and very many vibes. Travelling down to Bristol (via Bath), I knew the following few days were going to be good - but I wasn't quite prepared for just how good the DEEP MEDi x Teachings in Dub...

Happy Birthday DMZ

Celebrating a Decade of DMZ

Ten years ago, all the way back in 2005, four friends started a collaboration that would launch a global cultural movement that would define their lives, their legacy and impact the lives of others across the world.

Axis in Rotation

FKOF Review

“So you laydeez like real dubstep, yeah?” Yeah, Mr. Smoking Area Man, we do. Despite being relatively 'new' listeners, we've been welcomed with open arms, integrating with ease into the community. We (my friend, M, and I) now live for the packed floors filled with steppers, peaceful vibes and...

Surge – Alphawolf EP

FKOF Review

There are many labels pushing the boundaries of the dubstep sound these days - both new and old imprints flying the flag in their own individual ways.

FatKidOnFire Presents #2

After the feature with the brilliant Olie Bassweight debuted the new 'FatKidOnFire Presents' series at the end of March, I was unsure how we'd be able to progress with it - in terms of the frequency, the participants and how #1 would be received.

Tumble Audio x FatKidOnFire

[Label Highlight]

It's been a while since we had a proper Label Highlight feature here on FatKidOnFire - but today's addition is about as in-depth as a label highlight should be (in our opinion anyway). Introducing Nottingham's Tumble Audio, below you'll read a detailed interview with label-head/ Tumble spokesperson/...

Out and About (DMZ 8th Birthday)

[Recap]

Since getting home from DMZ's 8th birthday last Saturday morning, I've been trying work out how to write this post. I'm still not convinced I can put into words what the experience was; so I'll let the photos and videos I took do the talking... On Friday March 1st, I headed down to Great Suffolk Street...

It's been fairly hectic on the FKOF SoundCloud, Twitter and Facebook pages accounts though so if you want the more constant updates, head over and start following! There's a bit more content coming...
