Benny Ill – VERSION006

FKOF Review

It’s not often you get the opportunity to hear the marriage of old and new on the same release — or even the same tune. Version’s latest two track EP features exactly this combination: original material from Orson, remixed by the one and only Benny Ill (you may know him via the foundational...

Various Artists – Los Angeles EP

FKOF Review

Joe Nice, the American dubstep ambassador, has done it again. We’ve known him as a talented, charismatic and enthusiastic DJ, curator and performer — respected for his incredible live performances where he blesses the dance with red-hot dubplate after dubplate.

Keeping it Subliminal

[Artist Highlight]

I take comfort in the underground music community. It is a privilege to inhabit a sphere satisfied to rumble safely below the radar of a mainstream culture obsessed with causing commotion. When EDM heroes and social media superstars spew garbage online or on the mic, I tend to resist catering to the...

Various Artists – FKOFd030

As it happens (but entirely unintentionally), FKOFd030’s release date is the same day we released...

Kaiju – Seven Sins

FKOF Review

At the end of 2011, MakeItGood’s Lara and I were approaching the 100th feature in our collaborative feature series. As always, I was asking some of the artists I respected and admired if they’d be interested in collaborating — but taking the £100 spot. Beezy was the first to respond — and smashed...

Sleeper – Crushin EP

FKOF Review

Crucial Recordings couldn’t bare a more appropriate name. Sleeper’s record label accurately describes the dubstep community’s collective regard for his releases. The artist produces in the spirit of a DJ. He channels the rhythmic energy of the dancefloor with skill and precision, and his tracks...

“It was the atmosphere that I loved the most”

LD x FatKidOnFire

Wheel & Deal Records have always impressed with their releases, whether from the early days of the imprint through to what’s come through over the last year or so. The next EP to drop from N-Type’s label features one of dubstep’s early influencers. An incredibly talented individual who mastered...
