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...

[Artist Highlight]

In my nearly five years of working on FKOF, I can count the number of times I've worked with a female producer or DJ on one (maybe two) hand. Whenever it arises, why that may be is always a topic that inspires debate in the predominantly male field that dubstep is these days. Thankfully, there are a...

Tunnidge

FatKidOnFire Presents #15

South London's Tunnidge has been one of the artists on my feature hit list since I started FKOF and - although it's taken nearly five years to pin him down - the wait has been more than worth it. Appearing alongside a host of other amazing producers and DJs at our recent takeover event in Rotterdam,...

Soundboys at Loftas Fest

[Event Highlight]

Having travelled across a bit of Europe (and even less of America) I'm no longer surprised at the seemingly random but dedicated collectives who pop up and throw some truly amazing dubstep events. Sweden, Belgium, The Netherlands, Portugal, Finland, Lithuania - they're all places with vibrant if small...

No longer on the Sidelines

Vaun x FatKidOnFire

Another month, another quality release from Crises and the Mindstep Music team. Bristol's Vaun has long been on our feature hit list - and yes, we're ashamed it's taken this long - but hopefully the following interview, guest mix and FKOF Promo will make up for the delay. This is an extremely...

Drew's Theory

“Big rims, dirty Southern grammar and corn bread”

Drew's Theory x FatKidOnFire

In the often confused world of electronic music, there are many connotations when you say the world 'dubstep'. What is dubstep in 2014? It's a long discussed (and rather boring) topic of conversation we've had many a time - and one that generally ends up with everyone agreeing to disagree with everyone...

“That whole ‘Dubstep is dead’ thing”

Encrypted Audio x FatKidOnFire

Every so often, there's a new outfit that arrives on the 'scene' - whatever the scene is these days - that has the potential to get people really excited about dubstep - whatever that is these days - again. It's happened a few times in the sound's history, but on the whole few have stood the test of time...

[Artist Highlight]

We've followed (and covered) the rise of Seven's Uprise Audio imprint here on FatKidOnFire since the early days of the label. As many suspected when it first surfaced, UA has gone from just another dubstep label to one of the most important new labels - homing some of the older, more established artists...

FatKidOnFire Presents #14 - Silkie

Silkie

FatKidOnFire Presents #14

Following on from our recent interview with dubstep originator Quest, I wanted to sit down with frequent collaborator Silkie. The two of them are responsible for many amazing sets together live, a superb Dubstep Allstars compilation and much more. Oh, and they're both at Fabric this Friday... I had a...

“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...
