After our write up of Truth's How Strange EP on Tempa last week I wasn't sure if there was another of the big labels to add to our FKOF Promo feature hit list. And then N-Type got in touch with Wheel & Deal's next release...
For those of you who've followed FKOF over the years, you'll know we...

We've written about Chris ‘Cris Fern’ Ferrantello many, many times here on FatKidOnFire since we first discovered his music.
It's still not quite sunk in that he's no longer with us to pop up to discuss his latest cat video, update our shared Dropbox folder or sign another release contract - but,...

In my mind, there are two things worth noting about the following post.
First, the label that's releasing the EP we're reviewing. To have an imprint like Tempa on these pages is a real, genuine milestone for FatKidOnFire - and one I'm not sure I'd ever imagined we'd reach when I first started doing...

But today, here I am.
Perhaps testament to the global...

No venue or promoter seems to be consistently providing a platform for established and upcoming artists to collaborate together on the one stage. But, after this Friday, there may...

#First keeps Europe's largest skatepark alive
In my hunt to further a career in the intersection between technology, culture and music (one that's spanned a startup, two digital agencies and a few of my own ventures - including FKOF), it's always great to read about a success story - a story of someone following their dreams and making it...
