Out and About (Reconstrvct 1st Birthday)

[Recap]

There was a while a few years back (and to an extent today – but on a lesser scale) where every dubstep event I went/ was invited to had been put on and marketed by the same few promoters (something I recently discussed in the 'What is Dubstep?' post). But as things calmed down and the decent events...

Doctor Jeep x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

I've been a fan of Andre 'Doctor Jeep' Lira for a good few years now. As one of the US' most exciting, forward-thinking DJs to produce and mix the deeper ends of the bass music spectrum, Doctor Jeep's seen appearances alongside some of the finest DJs in the US and releases with some of America's best...

Dubsworth x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

Again with the theme of the Americans running things at the moment (it's becoming a bit amusing now), we’re back with another feature documenting this progression. We've been a fan of the Dubs Alive imprint since its early outings - and were delighted to see a recent compilation titled Don’t...

There’s always bass in the banana stand

Banana Stand Sound x FatKidOnFire

We've said it before and we'll say it again - our American brethren are responsible for some of the most exciting sounds in dubstep/ bass/ whatever the latest buzzword is at the moment. The constant stream of producers flying over to the United States for touring, playing their music at dances like...

There Is A Better Way

Malleus x FatKidOnFire

It's hard to believe we've actually reached the first year marker with FKOFd. It's even harder to think we're ending it with a gargantuan EP an American producer not many people know about... “We’re ending our first year with a FKOFd EP from one of the most exciting American producers we’ve...

“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...

A Soundman Chronicled

Parris & Keysound Recordings at FABRICLIVE

"The reason why I started DJing in the first place was for my own personal fulfilment, and just to pick up something new" says Soundman Chronicles founder and Keysound Recordings affiliate Parris, who started collecting dubstep before evolving into many other genres. "Around the beginning of 2012, I...

DJ The Tornado

An American Dubstep DJ

Every few months, we see the 'dubstep's dead' conversation pop up on the web. It's a pretty hot topic given Benga's recent announcement (and the positive and negative reactions to his news have been pretty astonishing) and seems to reappear with a somewhat boring regularity. But as I've always said, or...

TUBA NYC x FatKidOnFire

[Label Highlight]

When most people hear the combination of ‘dubstep’ and ‘America’, the immediate reaction is often to generalise; adding the most grotesque adjectives to describe the invasion of the so-called filthy dubstep (also known as brostep) that's occurred in and around the borders of this huge continent...
