“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...

Introducing Trackstack

Crate-digging for the digital age

I've always been a fan of the intersection between technology and music. It's one of the reasons I first started blogging here at FatKidOnFire - and it's the inspiration that lead me to meeting Ben and launching Chew with him a few years back. Over the years, I've tried to document my music/ tech...

Doctor Jeep x FatKidOnFire

“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...

“Less negativity. More solidarity”

AxH x FatKidOnFire

We first met AxH in September two years ago with the truly awesome FKOF Presents feature we did with him. Since then, much has changed for the musician, and the wider international dubstep community. With recent spectacles like the DEEP MEDi Boiler Room takeover a few weeks back, the latest...

We Ain’t The Same

Thelem x FatKidOnFire

Thelem’s sound has always been a favourite here at FKOF. We've known Matty since the early days - back when we were wet behind the years and just getting started. For us, it all started with his appearance alongside Kryptic Minds at a gig in Reading in the early days of Orientis Records - followed soon...

Benton does Boomtown

And apparently he's back on the 140

As the UK summer festival season approaches peak levels, I recently had the opportunity to sit down with long-time FKOF fam Benton (no, we're not the same person and yes, we do have the same surname) ahead of his latest appearance at Boomtown... "BoomTown rose up from the underground seven annual...
