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...

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...

DMVU x IllChill – Green Tape

FKOF Review

“Nothing is sacred.” It didn’t make it into the final draft, but I’m certain that DMVU said this to me in an interview about the side of his musical personality showcased byGreen Tape, now available on Turbo Tape. This is the spirit in which I review the album. The collaboration with Ill Chill...

“All the good small clubs we like are shutting down”

Walsh x FatKidOnFire

It’s been a minute since our last sitdown with Biscuit Factory Records bossman, DJ extraordinaire and dubstep producer Walsh. Too long, if you ask us. After a recent trip to Malaysia re-focused his efforts on producing new material, we caught up with the musician to find out more (and bagged a new...

Bisweed – Baby EP

FKOF Review

These days, the evolution of dubstep is a touchy topic.
