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...

EshOne x FatKidOnFire

“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...

Mantra Music's MANTRA001

Contemporary bass music with a Classical twist

Mantra Music x FatKidOnFire

A few months ago, ST Holdings - one of the key distributors of independent vinyl record labels - announced they were scaling their business back. This obviously meant that a number of labels that had signed up for vinyl deals were being dropped and their contracts cancelled. The move inspired a few...

Digital Tunes

The Curation of Quality Content

Digital Tunes x FatKidOnFire

I've often been intrigued by the benefits and detrimental effects technology and the digital world has on the music industry. It's a topic of interest that I seemingly share with a few contacts I've gained over the years - so I'm always keen to find new people to talk to. Having worked in digital...

FKOF Presents 12 - Bakir

Bakir

FatKidOnFire Presents #12

We like to think discovering (and subsequently supporting) new producers has always been a key part of the role FKOF plays in bass music. But it’s only in the last few years that that role has extended to working with new or upcoming record labels – be that through our FKOF Promos, Release...

FatKidOnFire Presents #13 - Leon Switch ft. Toast

Leon Switch ft. Toast

FatKidOnFire Presents #13

It’s rare to find a producer and host/ MC completely comfortable straight from their first few shows together. But that’s exactly the situation Leon Switch and the Toast MC have found themselves in. Separately, they need no introduction. Leon Switch came through from the DnB world as the dubstep...

Kloudmen (David in focus)

Kloudmen x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

We rarely come across a producer (let alone a producer duo) who’s sound feels so natural in its early stages. Back when we were hosting the very first FKOFOKUS session in London, we heard their beats getting dropped by our boy Beezy - and we've kept a close eye on them since. Discovering that the...

Quest

Quest x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

As far as dubstep veterans go, Quest is up there as one of the most respected and favoured producers from the "foundation sound" days. And, unlike many of his peers from the era, the producer is still actually making the same level of quality tunes that first brought him to our attention all those years...

“I no longer limit myself”

Nomine x FatKidOnFire

"There's astonishing depth contained within Nomine's music. His three releases to date - two for Tempa and the Jahpan EP on Dubzilla - have displayed a vast breadth of ideas and an intrinsic ear for space and sound design. His is an immediately distinctive sound: echo-drenched melodies that drift like...
