FatKidOnFire Presents #18
He's not been long in the game, but the latest addition to our FatKidOnFire Presents series is one of the most prolific producers on the scene. Proxima's responsible for a stupid amount of anthems - both released and dub - and calls the legendary Tempa Records home. Oh, and he's Icicle's cousin. The...

“So you laydeez like real dubstep, yeah?”
Yeah, Mr. Smoking Area Man, we do. Despite being relatively 'new' listeners, we've been welcomed with open arms, integrating with ease into the community. We (my friend, M, and I) now live for the packed floors filled with steppers, peaceful vibes and...

The Others x FatKidOnFire
Following on from our catch up with Dub Police founder, producer and DJ extraordinaire Caspa earlier this month, we recently had the chance to sit down with The Others.
As one of Dub Police's consistently impressive producers, Alex Crawford has joined a number of musicians who are returning to...

Caspa x FatKidOnFire
Most of you will be able to trace the producers who first got you into dubstep. I had a fairly slow time getting into the sound back in the day - but the following interviewee was one of two artists responsible for cementing my love for the dubstep sound.
In 2007, Gary 'Caspa' McCann partnered with...

Less Effort x FatKidOnFire
Although the majority of our newer fanbase may not know it, FKOF started as an effort to support the independent musicians, brands and characters doing things I liked the look of. While the majority of our focus now lies with the music side of things, I'm still very much keen on the idea of being an...

Pig&Rig x FatKidOnFire
The following may strike you as a somewhat strange addition to the content archive here on FatKidOnFire. But having discovered Pig&Rig during a (somewhat offtrack) planning session for my wedding next year*, their story of good food, sound system culture and a healthy dose of entrepreneurism struck...

Matty G x FatKidOnFire
He's been quiet for longer than a hot minute, but if his mix for us here at FatKidOnFire is anything to go by, Matty G's back, raring to go and is once again a force to be reckoned with.
About damn time.
Having joined forces with longtime collaborator J:Kenzo for his first release on Artikal...

Daega Sound x FatKidOnFire
We've featured a number of Canadian producers here on FatKidOnFire over the years, but the next producers to land in the FKOF Artist Highlight spotlight are a duo we've had our eyes on for a while.
Daega Sound's latest release dropped a few weeks back on TUBA; a pretty solid vinyl/ digital release...

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...
August 28th, 2014
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...
