FatKidOnFire Presents #9
It's rare that a tune unites everyone under the dubstep banner, from the deep heads to the tearout bros. It's even rarer that people proclaim we've had the tune of the year a few months into a new year. The following producer, one who's known for his skill on either side of the deep/ brostop divide,...

Duku & Sibla x FatKidOnFire
Having first met the duo during my Lithuanian dubstep adventure, and experiencing their skill behind the decks, I've been keen to feature Duku and Sibla here on FatKidOnFire in some form or other since returning from Vilnius. The duo co-founded, and are responsible for, Brighton's The Mine - one of the...

Lutetia Dubz x FatKidOnFire
Nibe's Lutetia Dubz have had a fairly decent few months so far this year - with a well-received run of mixes and a few capacity events in the Parisian venue Glazart.

Sub:Conscious x FatKidOnFire
About a month ago, we partnered with one of Nottingham's latest bass music collectives to give away one of our latest FKOF EPs. Today, we're releasing the second part of our collaboration with Sub:Conscious [which is SHD (James B and Ben), DT (Dan), Outbound (Jon R) and Reaction (Ryan)].

DyAD are a two man-strong production and DJ alias making sounds that seem to represent an entire army. Danny and Matt's winning entry in the Pressed Records/ Matt-U competition brought them to our attention, but they've set the bar and then raised it with the music that followed the Danger remix.

Mindstep Music x FatKidOnFire
We've been working with Mindstep Music on and off for quite a while now, supporting the label as it becomes one of the finer imprints releasing bass-led music on our radar. We caught up with Crises a few weeks back, as he was announcing the label's latest release - and he suggested we have a chat with...

Juno Download x FatKidOnFire
A few weeks ago, to celebrate the six month anniversary of the FatKidOnFire digital label venture, we joined forces with the guys at Juno Download for a two week-long takeover of their dubstep page.
The takeover included one of the first interviews I've done in ages, a guest mix from our friends at...

FatKidOnFire Presents #7
As the sound continues to be accused dying, with the founding fathers moving to pastures new, some might say dubstep is pretty dire trouble. But one of the original dons, one of the south London producers who helped shape the sound we all know and love, a DJ who was there in 2006 for the Dubstep...
