30 Minutes of Caspa

A Bass Education

Gary McCann has always had a license for dubplates. The producer grew up in a family of music enthusiasts; his father and two brothers were record collector. You’d imagine this would inspire the young Gary into record collecting as well - but his childhood ambitions were wildly different. Gary...

30 minutes of DJ Heny G

A Bass Education

In our opinion, Malcolm Gustave may be one of the most overlooked DJs and producers from the early days of dubstep through to today, with the sound's global following. His continued efforts in pushing the underground sound make him one of the true dubstep originators. Growing up in West London,...

Eva808

30 minutes of Matty G

A Bass Education

It’s been suggested, on more than one occasion, that the introduction of dubstep into the United States resulted in a (perceived) ‘decay’ of the true sound. As is always the case, this is not entirely true. California-bred Matthew Gonsalves was one of the first Stateside producers to pick up...

30 Minutes of Kryptic Minds

A Bass Education

The (relatively) recent demise of Kryptic Minds resulted in dubstep’s latest existential crisis - similar to the one caused by Brett Bigden and Simon Shreeve’s arrival into the 140bpm arena. Their take on the 140 sound, moulded by founding father Loefah and influential tastemaker Youngsta, brought a...

FatKidOnFire Presents #17 - DJ Crises

DJ Crises

FatKidOnFire Presents #17

We've spent many a collaborative project working with DJ Crises' Mindstep Music throughout our history - but we've never worked with the DJ, label manager and all-round awesome guy. We figured it was high time we featured the main man himself and, as we'd expected, he's come correct with two(!) mixes...

Tony Rocky Horror x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

It's seemingly a running theme - this "America's making dubstep and we're loving it" thing we've got going on at the moment. Our Stateside siblings have seriously stepped up over the last few months - and our latest FKOF Artist Highlight is a perfect example of this... Initially coming across our...

30 Minutes of L-Wiz

A Bass Education

Our mission to teach the history of our dubstep genre would be incomplete without an attempt to explain how the latest 30 Minutes of Bass education artists helped create and future the Scandinavian scene. Claes Rosén and Ola Naslund became friends at an early age, attending the same school in...

30 minutes of D1

A Bass Education

Dwayne Marsh, as far as we can tell, was always bound to be a musician. The son of a jungle and techno producing father and a mother who used to sing, music was part of Marsh's life from the beginning. In a 2011 interview with Bigup Mag, the musician explained how he could play the piano by 7 years...

30 minutes of Synkro

A Bass Education

With a broad palette of releases in the bass realm, it's undeniable that Synkro deserves a place in our mix series. Joe McBride is a musician in the truest sense of the word - but there is no denying that dubstep and the "essence of bass" has influenced him and the music he's created. In a...
