TMSV – ‘AKU’ EP

He's back - with a debut on Tumble Audio

Anyone who’s spent longer than a few months following FatKidOnFire will know how much the collective has for Utrecht-based TMSV. And, likewise, you’ll know how much time we’ve got for the Nottingham-based audio troublemakers, party starters and all round top blokes Tumble Audio. So when I...

30 minutes of Gantz

A Bass Education

This week’s 30 Minutes of Bass Education feature documents an artist who's brought a more global sound to dubstep. In the many countries where the sound's producers and fans are found, 'regional' dubstep seems to balance its original values and the more underground sounds that are found locally....

30 minutes of Commodo

A Bass Education

After an (unintended) long period of absence, we're back with the latest instalment to the 30 Minutes of Bass Education series. Our goal is to revive the series to the same level, frequency and spirit as in previous years - we've no good excuse as to why it's taken so long to get #26 out but the upside of...

RELOAD with J. Sparrow, Silkie and Commodo

[Recap]

Our last trip to Utrecht’s RELOAD left us near overwhelmed - it was one of the best dances we've attended in The Netherlands over the last few months (if you missed it, you can read about the session here). With the first and second editions selling out (perhaps due to artists like Karma and Kaiju...

Commodo vs. Gantz (MEDi090)

FKOF Review

In our community there are anthems. And then there are the anthems' anthems. Mala's DEEP MEDi imprint, one of the few labels consistently contributing quality musik to the masses, generally tends to answer the call for these anthemic productions. So when MEDi quietly lined up the release of two...

Commodo, Gantz & Kahn – Volume 1

FKOF Review

Nearly everyone involved in the dubstep sound is (or everyone should be) well aware of DEEP MEDi’s expert curation of the genre. The imprint is one of the few true bastions of 140bpm bass music - responsible for some of the best music and producers around. No mean feat. While the quality of MEDi...

Axis in Rotation

FKOF Review

“So you laydeez like real dubstep, yeah?” Yeah, Mr. Smoking Area Man, we do. Despite being relatively 'new' listeners, we've been welcomed with open arms, integrating with ease into the community. We (my friend, M, and I) now live for the packed floors filled with steppers, peaceful vibes and...

Out and About (DMZ 8th Birthday)

[Recap]

Since getting home from DMZ's 8th birthday last Saturday morning, I've been trying work out how to write this post. I'm still not convinced I can put into words what the experience was; so I'll let the photos and videos I took do the talking... On Friday March 1st, I headed down to Great Suffolk Street...
