30 minutes of Kromestar

A Bass Education

Describing Kromestar in a few words is a frustrating affair - as it always seems to result in an inaccurate description of the producer's grandeur... South London-bred R. Kalsi (does anyone actually know Kromestar’s first name?!) has made music under several aliases, starting off with grime/...

30 minutes of Silkie

A Bass Education

Silkie and smooth are two words that have always gone well together. It's a natural pairing. For most of his fanbase, Solomon 'Silkie' Rose effortlessly embodies the smooth musical Beauty in dubstep. Silkie's start followed the path of many early dubstep producers, trying his hand at...

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...

A Bass Education

Some may say the beauty of dubstep lies in its moodiness and meditational vibe. This, perhaps, implies meditation cannot be achieved by raw, aggressive energy. But you'd be wrong to assume this implication is the case. If there is a producer that embodies this raw and aggressive side of dubstep, it is...

A Bass Education

It'd be near irresponsible to document the roots of the dubstep sound without tipping the proverbial cap to the "other side" of what you'll normally find here on FatKidOnFire. It goes by many names - tearout, brostep, dubstep - but it has a ridiculously passionate following and, oddly given where it is...

A Bass Education

We all know how important our teenage years are. How integral they are in shaping us into the adults we become. Not only for the choices that we make, but also as a reflection on our mistakes. This is a story that matches both Oliver Jones as an individual and Oliver Jones as the dubstep producer...

There Is A Better Way

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...

Shutnizza x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

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...

Tunnidge

FatKidOnFire Presents #15

South London's Tunnidge has been one of the artists on my feature hit list since I started FKOF and - although it's taken nearly five years to pin him down - the wait has been more than worth it. Appearing alongside a host of other amazing producers and DJs at our recent takeover event in Rotterdam,...

A Bass Education

There are many ways you could describe DMZ co-founder, Deep Medi boss and all-round legendary guy Mark 'Mala' Lawrence. The embodiment of dubstep in its finest form? Yep. One of the greatest producers bass music has ever seen? Yep. We could go on. And on. There are many accolades we could use - but at...
