Kelly Dean – Bloodline EP

FKOF Review

After Oxóssi’s chart-topping Buried release, which we reviewed earlier this year, Silent Motion Records have recently revealed their next vinyl release - starring none other than Smog Records’ very own (and long-time FKOF fam) Kelly Dean. Not forgetting an appearance from the ever-awesome...

Leon Switch – Intrepid / Overlook

FKOF Review

It’s been over six months since the last release on Distance’s genre-defining imprint. Mesck’s superb CHST037 was a great way to end 2015 and it looks like the label's starting the new year in a similar place to where they left off last year. The latest addition to Distance’s label sees another...

Mesck – Dead Language

FKOF Review

As one of the finest imprints in dubstep, it’s always an exciting time when fresh Chestplate material arrives. And, with its focus on quality rather than quantity, the latest release from Distance’s label marks the return of its first American artist. Never one to shy away from his responsibilities...

Underground Sessions

Mass LA Presents

It seems to be a fairly common running theme, hearing that promoters, artists or venues are struggling to hook events up these days. It's something I've struggled with at FKOF (although next month seems to suggest that may be changing) and it's something nearly everyone I've talked to - in every walk of...

Sleeper – Lander EP

FKOF Review

New Chestplate material is never a bad thing. Anything Distance believes in enough to put his name to it is good enough for us - at the best of times. But when our good friend Sleeper and the imprint head honcho collaborate on releases, that's when we get seriously excited... Following Leon...

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...

Leon Switch – Deadlock / Persepolisia

FKOF Review

Coming up to the last few days of the month, July has seen three of the biggest labels in dubstep feature releases here on FatKidOnFire. We started with Tempa (and Truth's How Strange EP), following with Wheel&Deal (and Demon's self-titled release). Tonight, we end the month with our third and...

30 minutes of Cyrus

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...

Sleeper

FatKidOnFire Presents #8

Following on from the FatKidOnFire Presents feature with the DJ Distance, the next interview and guest mix in the series is with Sleeper, another Chestplate artist. But this FKOF Presents feature sees one of (if not the first!) the first ever FatKidOnFire techno mixes... The end of 2013 saw...

Distance

FatKidOnFire Presents #7

As the sound continues to be accused dying, with the founding fathers moving to pastures new, some might say dubstep is pretty dire trouble. But one of the original dons, one of the south London producers who helped shape the sound we all know and love, a DJ who was there in 2006 for the Dubstep...
