Argo – Nooo

FKOF Review

We always knew Argo was destined for great things. Even with his debut release that we signed back in 2013/2014, we knew the French producer/ DJ had that something special you need in the dubstep sound. Over the last few years, we've watched Arnaud has started to cement his standing in the dubstep...

Dem A Talk

Compa's finally repressed it (but it's already sold out)

Edit 28/11/16: If you missed out on the repress, you missed out. All 500 copies sold out within 18 hours. Bootlegging’s always been an integral part of music culture — but it’s rare that a particular tune captures the attention of musicians or helps to define a particular time in a...

Clothing the Low Frequency Resistance

Dataset x FatKidOnFire

Especially if the independent lasts past their first birthday (which is increasingly a rarity in the tough times we face these days). FKOF fam The Mine are four years old this weekend.
