Dubbacle – FKOFd016

FatKidOnFire Presents

We may have missed a release in the first month of 2015, but having done fifteen releases in fifteen months we hope you’ll forgive us for taking a few weeks off. And, as we like to do, we’ve made up for the holiday by coming out with all guns blazing... "The Netherlands is one of the...

The future’s roots

DJ Madd x FatKidOnFire

Another day, another artist ticked off the FKOF hit list. It's an absolute honour to welcome the New York-based (via Bristol, Japan and Budapest) Hungarian producer to these here pages - I've been hunting for a chat with the one and only DJ Madd for a very, very long time! Sitting down around the...

Fire London x FKOF

The great Fire of London

Wheel & Deal x Fire x FatKidOnFire

Things have been a bit quiet here on FKOF over the last two weeks. I've been heads down on getting Chew off the ground (thanks to everyone who's contributed in any way - hugely appreciated), Korrupt's been keeping the SoundCloud ticking over and we've all been pitching in on the FKOF social accounts when...

Introducing Chew

Introducing Chew

The DJ's live streaming platform

You may, or may not, have noticed an increase in events (FKOF or affiliated) we've been live streaming recently. If you've wondered why, today should give you a bit of a clue... I've been working with my good friend Ben (who also happens to be a kickass developer - amongst many other talents) for...

FKOFSoundboys

The only good system is a sound system

Soundboys x FatKidOnFire

As far as FKOF events have gone in 2014, we've achieved more than I'd hope we would when I wrote the 2013 Review. We've done shows in Europe, the UK and even tested the waters on the other side of the pond with our first event on American soil. All of the shows we've been involved with have been...

Seven & Joe Raygun

“To me, it’s all still dubstep”

Seven x FatKidOnFire

It's been a while since I've had the time to sit down and talk to Uprise Audio frontman Seven. And given everything he and the team have done with the label this year - not to mention the producer's recent long player - I figured that was an issue that needed fixing... I managed to track Eddy down...

30 minutes of Bass education #14

30 minutes of V.I.V.E.K

A Bass Education

In just under a decade, Vivek Sharda - or V.I.V.E.K as you'll probably know him - has become known for his efforts in pushing sound system music and culture. Since the producer's first release (2007's OTE001 via On The Edge), combined with outstanding releases on the Deep Medi and Tectonic...

EGOLESS – LIONCHG009

FKOF Review

With eight releases in its back catalogue, it's safe to say Lion Charge Records is an imprint that's done more than enough in pushing the roots of dub in 2014. It's a label that's released music from a wide range of artists - all of whom are influencing (or will influence) many future generations...

FKOF - New Music

New Music

It's time, unfortunately, for one of - or the last - the final New Music posts of 2014 here on FKOF. We might get one more out of Justify's before the new year, but I think you can all agree he's done an absolutely stellar job of curating some of the SoundCloud uploads he and we have been listening...

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...
