“It was the atmosphere that I loved the most”

LD x FatKidOnFire

Wheel & Deal Records have always impressed with their releases, whether from the early days of the imprint through to what’s come through over the last year or so. The next EP to drop from N-Type’s label features one of dubstep’s early influencers. An incredibly talented individual who mastered...

FKOF Review

As you probably expect, we get sent a lot of promos. In a previous life, we attempted to promo quite a lot of those promos (and probably didn't do you guys - or ourselves - too much of a favour with the volume of tunes we were promoting). But there occasionally comes a release so good that, even if we...

Gomes x Oi! Amsterdam x FatKidOnFire

When discussing historic dubstep events or initiatives, there are a few that really stand out. You've obviously got the likes of DMZ, Croatia's Outlook or Belgium's 15,000-strong Rampage dances. Back in the early days, the sound started to gain traction in London's small and dark clubs filled with...

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 -...

DMZ at Fire London

Loud Noise x FatKidOnFire

Frequent readers will have noticed we've waxed lyrical (and then some) about the influence Mala and Coki have had on the team here at FatKidOnFire. And their obvious influence on the sound we all know and love. The duo have started playing London again recently, with the return of DMZ dances (under...

30 minutes of Coki

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 Mala

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. One of the greatest producers bass music has ever seen? Yep. We could go on. And on. There are many accolades we could use - but at...

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...

Gritsy's Saving Dubstep

Roughly this time last year, I ventured to some of the dubstep sound's founding father's birthday party. DMZ 8 still stands as one of the most special experiences I've ever had working in our scene - partly thanks to the fact I met Gritsy founder Suraj and photographer Huy Cao. Since meeting them,...

RC1 Sound System x FatKidOnFire

A Sound System For Sound System People

I've experienced a few sound systems in my time - as a music fan, attending and promoting events. Funktion One on numerous occasions. V.I.V.E.K's own at the legendary SYSTEM. A few others at various dances in the UK. One of the (many) highlights during DMZ's 8th birthday was the system they'd used....
