When I first heard Tunnidge - one of the dubstep sound's founding fathers - was gearing up to release his debut LP, two thoughts struck me. Firstly, I was surprised we hadn't seen an album from Tim sooner. But, as the saying goes, all good things come to those who wait. Secondly, were we going to see...

Alpha Steppa x Kiangana x FatKidOnFire
Every so often, we get our hands on a tune that's a bit too special to try put too many words to. This FKOF free download appeared in our laps a few months back, and we've been waiting for a good opportunity to unleash it. That opportunity rolled around when we reached 10,000 fans on Facebook(!) a month...

Encrypted Audio x FatKidOnFire
Long-time readers (as well as the newer of you out there) will be well aware of the love we have for Content and the Encrypted Audio gang. Tony was one of the first dubstep DJs/ producers I met after moving to London and is one of the longest-running FKOF fam there is.
So when he hit me up a few...

Looking back on the last twelve months, it's hard to believe how much we've achieved with Chew.
tl;dr We'd like you to join the family. Invest in Chew today!
This time last year, early December 2014, Ben and I were a month into time on the Ignite accelerator in Newcastle — and a whole month away...

DEEP MEDi x Teachings in Dub
Last week, I packed myself into a suitcase and headed to the station for 48 hours of very little sleep and very many vibes. Travelling down to Bristol (via Bath), I knew the following few days were going to be good - but I wasn't quite prepared for just how good the DEEP MEDi x Teachings in Dub...

As part of our ongoing efforts to champion labels and producers the world over, we recently got the chance to check the latest release on new Croatian label Untied. This is the imprint's third (and probably final) release of the year - following standout EPs from FKOF fam JKL and Ohmtrix. And, as it...

It's that time again.
Next weekend, Brighton and its dubstep faithful are preparing themselves for what promises another absolutely sensational dance at Volks with The Mine. As ever, Duku and the team are pushing our sound with yet another amazing lineup (one that oddly echoes my Lithuanian dubstep...
