A Bass Education

Some may say the beauty of dubstep lies in its moodiness and meditational vibe. This, perhaps, implies meditation cannot be achieved by raw, aggressive energy. But you'd be wrong to assume this implication is the case. If there is a producer that embodies this raw and aggressive side of dubstep, it is...

30 minutes of Jakes

A Bass Education

It'd be near irresponsible to document the roots of the dubstep sound without tipping the proverbial cap to the "other side" of what you'll normally find here on FatKidOnFire. It goes by many names - tearout, brostep, dubstep - but it has a ridiculously passionate following and, oddly given where it is...

A Bass Education

We all know how important our teenage years are. How integral they are in shaping us into the adults we become. Not only for the choices that we make, but also as a reflection on our mistakes.

A Bass Education

There are many ways you could describe DMZ co-founder, Deep Medi boss and all-round legendary guy Mark 'Mala' Lawrence. The embodiment of dubstep in its finest form? Yep.

30 minutes of Distance

A Bass Education

From most points of view, Distance (also known as DJ Distance) can be seen as one of the most influential producers in dubstep. Distance is, to most of us, personally responsible for bringing dubstep a rocky, metallic influence that manifests itself in phased and distorted reece basslines, sharp...

A Bass Education

Cyrus has been around since the early 2000s, part of the Croydon crowd who were instrumental in creating what has become today's dubstep sound. With a (mostly vinyl) release catalogue stretching back to 2007 - and a few imprints to his name - Cyrus is a valuable addition to our efforts in bringing you an...

30 minutes of Loefah

A Bass Education

Dubstep, in all its permutations, is a very special sound. Having grown from the depths of Croydon in South London to the mainstream stadiums of America (and Glastonbury), it is also a truly global sound. It has many names, many supporters and many haters - but whatever your opinion, there's no...
