“All the good small clubs we like are shutting down”

Walsh x FatKidOnFire

It’s been a minute since our last sitdown with Biscuit Factory Records bossman, DJ extraordinaire and dubstep producer Walsh. Too long, if you ask us. After a recent trip to Malaysia re-focused his efforts on producing new material, we caught up with the musician to find out more (and bagged a new...

“I’m a sucker for an 808”

J:Kenzo x FatKidOnFire

Whether dub(wise), dubstep, UK garage or other uptempo examples, this interviewee is a phenomenal bass veteran...

“I’m a fan of the music over everything else”

Adam Prescott x FatKidOnFire

The UK has a wonderfully vibrant soundsystem culture. It's a culture inspired by the original creators who journeyed to the UK from around the world in the mid 20th century; creating genres, lifestyles, experiences and more - a collective consciousness that's shared across generations, geography, race and...

Ladies, gents, gather round. It is the time…

Gomes x Oi! Amsterdam x FatKidOnFire

When discussing historic dubstep events or initiatives, there are a few that really stand out. You've obviously got the likes of DMZ, Croatia's Outlook or Belgium's 15,000-strong Rampage dances. Back in the early days, the sound started to gain traction in London's small and dark clubs filled with...

“Putting the love of the music first”

Donga x FatKidOnFire

Of the label managers running viable vinyl independent imprints in the UK (and I mean labels who survive more than a few releases), Donga's venerable stable puts most others to shame. The DJ and producer somehow finds time to foster young talent, release truly astounding music and look after a number of...
