30 minutes of Bass education #13

30 minutes of RSD

A Bass Education

If one would speak in terms of (bass) heritage, RSD is arguably the most valuable player yet in the 30 minutes series. As a member of the groundbreaking Bristolian triphop/breakbeat outfit Smith & Mighty, he was involved in laying a foundation for artists like Massive Attack (whose first...

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. One such label that's been consistently impressing us is Walsh's Biscuit Factory Records. You can track the evolution of the genre with the label - with...

Mass LA's Underground Sessions

Underground Sessions

Mass LA Presents

“At war with the body, at war with time” Samuel Gordon, possibly contemplating his own life, on one of his most recent (and sadly, last) brilliant lyrical flows... In a rare (and therefore highly recommended) interview with Motoko Kusanagi, the vocalist and poet explained his reserved,...

Thekla

Lithuania via Bristol

[Event Highlights]

As far as I'm concerned, it's been a pretty good year for FatKidOnFire. The label's done well, this year's album went down well and we've gone from strength to strength with every network we're on (with a collective fanbase of nearly 35,000 people). Not damn bad! The one area I think everyone...

FKOF - New Music

New Music

It's been a relatively manic November as far as New Music goes - but thankfully Justify's on hand to curate some of the SoundCloud uploads he and we have been listening to recently. As always, please let us know if you're feeling (or if you've got something we have to hear)! And don't forget you...
