FatKidOnFire Presents #12

We like to think discovering (and subsequently supporting) new producers has always been a key part of the role FKOF plays in bass music. But it’s only in the last few years that that role has extended to working with new or upcoming record labels – be that through our FKOF Promos, Release...

Quest x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

As far as dubstep veterans go, Quest is up there as one of the most respected and favoured producers from the "foundation sound" days. And, unlike many of his peers from the era, the producer is still actually making the same level of quality tunes that first brought him to our attention all those years...

FatKidOnFire Presents

There have been few artists we’ve worked with on more occasions in our history than we have with Kent-based producer/ DJ Content. He was one of the first artists I got to know having moved to London and discovered the dubstep sound some eight or nine years ago. We’ve kept in touch as both his musical...

Dubstep Ain’t Dead

Do we really still need to be having this conversation?

After hearing the news about Benga's departure from the music scene, I saw a mixture of reactions. Some people respect his decision, whilst others sadly seem to think it's (yet again) a suitable opportunity to shout about the death of dubstep. It’s beginning to get old. Benga is, and always...

Fishing for Deep Tuna

Genetix x FatKidOnFire

After our MakeItGood x FatKidOnFire feature with the duo a year ago last week, Genetix have continued to take both the tearout and deep sides of dubstep by storm. While doing so, they've built up an enviable collection of dubs that have recently seen release through their new imprints - Big Tuna and Deep...

Nanobyte – FKOFd005

FatKidOnFire Presents

We're now four releases into the FatKidOnFire digital - or FKOFd - label. Each of our releases have reached #2 or higher on the Juno Download Deep Dubstep chart (all thanks to the work of Dubfreq, Subreachers and 11th Hour, AKX and DubApes); which, given the label is a mere five months old, is what we...

Going to War

Arkotypes x FatKidOnFire

It never ceases to amaze me that in just over a decade, a sound that grew from garage and grime in South London is being both produced and listened to all over the world. But it also amazes me that one such island, similar but also very different to the UK, is a consistent breeding ground for truly...
