Sub Basics x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

He’s one of our favourite producers and he’s got a release coming with the Infernal Sounds gang. Prepare yourselves! Infernal Sounds’ four (near sold out) releases show a well-balanced melange between established artists and upcoming talent, with releases from acts like Perverse and Von D, as well...

Dubsworth x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

Again with the theme of the Americans running things at the moment (it's becoming a bit amusing now), we’re back with another feature documenting this progression. We've been a fan of the Dubs Alive imprint since its early outings - and were delighted to see a recent compilation titled Don’t...

[Artist Highlight]

We've followed (and covered) the rise of Seven's Uprise Audio imprint here on FatKidOnFire since the early days of the label. As many suspected when it first surfaced, UA has gone from just another dubstep label to one of the most important new labels - homing some of the older, more established artists...

“There are always going to be Ups & Downs”

EshOne x FatKidOnFire

"The elk (or wapiti) is one of the largest species of the Cervidae or deer family in the world, and one of the largest land mammals in North America and eastern Asia." Fittingly enough, elk-obsessed EshOne's sound, one we've featured before, is almost as large as the land mammal he named his record label...

Cris Fern – The Groove

[Artist Highlight]

We've written about Chris ‘Cris Fern’ Ferrantello many, many times here on FatKidOnFire since we first discovered his music. It's still not quite sunk in that he's no longer with us to pop up to discuss his latest cat video, update our shared Dropbox folder or sign another release contract - but,...

Kloudmen x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

We rarely come across a producer (let alone a producer duo) who’s sound feels so natural in its early stages. Back when we were hosting the very first FKOFOKUS session in London, we heard their beats getting dropped by our boy Beezy - and we've kept a close eye on them since. Discovering that the...

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...

“I no longer limit myself”

Nomine x FatKidOnFire

"There's astonishing depth contained within Nomine's music. His three releases to date - two for Tempa and the Jahpan EP on Dubzilla - have displayed a vast breadth of ideas and an intrinsic ear for space and sound design. His is an immediately distinctive sound: echo-drenched melodies that drift like...

A Soundman Chronicled

Parris & Keysound Recordings at FABRICLIVE

"Around the beginning of 2012, I...

Ahead of the imprint's next FABRICLIVE takeover (moving into Room 1 instead of...
