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 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...

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...

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...

Daega Sound

Discipline turns talent into ability

Daega Sound x FatKidOnFire

We've featured a number of Canadian producers here on FatKidOnFire over the years, but the next producers to land in the FKOF Artist Highlight spotlight are a duo we've had our eyes on for a while. Daega Sound's latest release dropped a few weeks back on TUBA; a pretty solid vinyl/ digital release...

Silkie - Silkie EP (WHEELYDEALY047)

Silkie – Silkie EP

FKOF Review

Another month and another absolutely ridiculous release from N-Type and the Wheel&Deal Records crew. October sees the label celebrate its 5th birthday (if you're free and in/ around London this Friday, come down and party!) with one of the craziest line ups I've seen in ages at - which is being...

FKOF 2M Free Downloads

2,000,000 Plays

Celebrating A Milestone

It took over three years to reach our first million plays on the FatKidOnFire SoundCloud. Looking back, as the account's following has grown (as you'd expect) we've seen a correlative growth in its engagement - but the last 18 months or so have been as near exponential as I've witnessed over FKOF's...
