FatKidOnFire Presents #8
Following on from the FatKidOnFire Presents feature with the DJ Distance, the next interview and guest mix in the series is with Sleeper, another Chestplate artist. But this FKOF Presents feature sees one of (if not the first!) the first ever FatKidOnFire techno mixes...
The end of 2013 saw...

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...

RDG x FatKidOnFire
We've covered Denmark's RDG quite a bit on FKOF - here on the site and relatively extensively (in various forms) on SoundCloud over the years.
At the end of last year, we got talking to the producer, DJ and label founder after he started the second of his labels - moving from digital-only to...

FatKidOnFire Presents #6
We're off to a fairly leisurely start with the FatKidOnFire Presents series this year, although we did get the following interviewees' mix and FKOF free download live in January. It's only now that we've got our act together and are getting around to the interview, but hopefully as you read on it'll...

Sumting New x FatKidOnFire
We may only be a few weeks into the new year, but we've had a pretty good run of hugely respectable artists featured in the FatKidOnFire interviews since the end of 2013.
And tonight we add another big name to the roster. The latest FKOF interviewee might just be one of the biggest artists we've had...

An American Dubstep DJ
Every few months, we see the 'dubstep's dead' conversation pop up on the web. It's a pretty hot topic given Benga's recent announcement (and the positive and negative reactions to his news have been pretty astonishing) and seems to reappear with a somewhat boring regularity.
But as I've always said, or...

Jot Maxi x FatKidOnFire
In August of last year, we caught up with Macabre Unit founder Demon (and not for the first or last time either!) and gave out a FatKidOnFire mix and FKOF free download. One of the M.U.D crew hosted the mix (which you can stream and download below); but the MC wasn't one I'd really heard of...

DJ Squarewave x FatKidOnFire
Ahead of the latest release on his New World Audio imprint, I recently caught up with founder DJ Squarewave. The producer, DJ, radio host and label owner has a pretty illustrious career - with releases and support from some of the sounds biggest labels and artists - so it's an honour to have him feature...

Genetix x FatKidOnFire
After our MakeItGood x FatKidOnFire feature with the duo a year ago last week, Genetix have continued to take both the tearout and deep sides of dubstep by storm. While doing so, they've built up an enviable collection of dubs that have recently seen release through their new imprints - Big Tuna and Deep...
January 19th, 2014
Ahead of his latest release on ever-reliably brilliant MindStep Music, and roughly three years after the last FatKidOnFire feature with him, we caught up with Cal Trashbat to talk music, gigs, good things from last year and more...
Cal, it's been a while (almost three years!) since we did our...
