30 minutes of Bass education #17

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...

30 minutes of Headhunter

A Bass Education

Anthony 'Tony' Williams, the man behind Headhunter and, in more recent years, Addison Groove, has created an impressive discography. It's a discography that's shaped the dubstep sound as we know it. Inspired by the Bristol music scene, its significance on the producer's formative years...

FKOF in 2014

FatKidOnFire in 2014

A Recap

Every year, with every Year in Review, I discover (sometimes surprisingly, sometimes not so much) that the 12 months being recapped have been better than the years before. But 2014 was such a standout year - in pretty much every way - that I'm unsurprised it's been our best on record. As was 2013's,...

TMSV

Heading for Home

TMSV x FatKidOnFire

It's been a while since we sat down with TMSV - perhaps one of the leading Dutch producers flying the flag for the current crop of brilliant bass music musicians appearing from within The Netherlands' borders. We've been linked with Tomas for a few years now, first featuring him back in August 2011....

Fire London x FKOF

The great Fire of London

Wheel & Deal x Fire x FatKidOnFire

Things have been a bit quiet here on FKOF over the last two weeks. I've been heads down on getting Chew off the ground (thanks to everyone who's contributed in any way - hugely appreciated), Korrupt's been keeping the SoundCloud ticking over and we've all been pitching in on the FKOF social accounts when...

30 minutes of Joker

A Bass Education

Like with many dubstep producers, it’s hard to put Joker in a box. If anything, Liam McLean has come to influence the dubstep sound with a lineup of records that suggest the Bristolian will leave as big a mark as some of the other legends of the genre. Next to his discography, the successful DJ and...

FKOFSoundboys

The only good system is a sound system

Soundboys x FatKidOnFire

As far as FKOF events have gone in 2014, we've achieved more than I'd hope we would when I wrote the 2013 Review. We've done shows in Europe, the UK and even tested the waters on the other side of the pond with our first event on American soil. All of the shows we've been involved with have been...

Seven & Joe Raygun

“To me, it’s all still dubstep”

Seven x FatKidOnFire

It's been a while since I've had the time to sit down and talk to Uprise Audio frontman Seven. And given everything he and the team have done with the label this year - not to mention the producer's recent long player - I figured that was an issue that needed fixing... I managed to track Eddy down...

30 minutes of V.I.V.E.K

A Bass Education

In just under a decade, Vivek Sharda - or V.I.V.E.K as you'll probably know him - has become known for his efforts in pushing sound system music and culture. Since the producer's first release (2007's OTE001 via On The Edge), combined with outstanding releases on the Deep Medi and Tectonic...

30 minutes of RSD

A Bass Education

If one would speak in terms of (bass) heritage, RSD is arguably the most valuable player yet in the 30 minutes series. As a member of the groundbreaking Bristolian triphop/breakbeat outfit Smith & Mighty, he was involved in laying a foundation for artists like Massive Attack (whose first...
