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...

Happy Birthday DMZ

Celebrating a Decade of DMZ

Ten years ago, all the way back in 2005, four friends started a collaboration that would launch a global cultural movement that would define their lives, their legacy and impact the lives of others across the world. Not many people can say they've done that... Tonight, we celebrate a decade of DMZ -...

FatKidOnFire in 2014

A Recap

Every year, with every Year in Review, I discover (sometimes surprisingly, sometimes not so much) that the 12 months being recapped have been better than the years before. But 2014 was such a standout year - in pretty much every way - that I'm unsurprised it's been our best on record. As was 2013's,...

The only good system is a sound system

Soundboys x FatKidOnFire

As far as FKOF events have gone in 2014, we've achieved more than I'd hope we would when I wrote the 2013 Review. We've done shows in Europe, the UK and even tested the waters on the other side of the pond with our first event on American soil. All of the shows we've been involved with have been...

Lithuania via Bristol

[Event Highlights]

As far as I'm concerned, it's been a pretty good year for FatKidOnFire. The label's done well, this year's album went down well and we've gone from strength to strength with every network we're on (with a collective fanbase of nearly 35,000 people). Not damn bad! The one area I think everyone...

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...
