Ladies, gents, gather round. It is the time…

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...

30 Minutes of Rusko

A Bass Education

There’s very few people in our scene who can ignore the importance and influence that Rusko has had on dubstep. And we don't say that lightly. Chris Mercer is a phenomenon who's personally responsible for shaping many of the scattered subgenres in electronic music throughout his musical...

30 Minutes of Caspa

A Bass Education

Gary McCann has always had a license for dubplates. The producer grew up in a family of music enthusiasts; his father and two brothers were record collector. You’d imagine this would inspire the young Gary into record collecting as well - but his childhood ambitions were wildly different. Gary...

Caspa – 500

FKOF Review

With few producers being acknowledged for their influence and impact on both the roots and heritage of the true dubstep sound, it's safe to say Caspa ticks both these boxes. And then some. After the well-received releases of the two 500: Episodes last year, the anticipation of the producer's...

30 minutes of Matty G

A Bass Education

It’s been suggested, on more than one occasion, that the introduction of dubstep into the United States resulted in a (perceived) ‘decay’ of the true sound. As is always the case, this is not entirely true. California-bred Matthew Gonsalves was one of the first Stateside producers to pick up...

30 Minutes of L-Wiz

A Bass Education

Our mission to teach the history of our dubstep genre would be incomplete without an attempt to explain how the latest 30 Minutes of Bass education artists helped create and future the Scandinavian scene. Claes Rosén and Ola Naslund became friends at an early age, attending the same school in...

30 minutes of D1

A Bass Education

Dwayne Marsh, as far as we can tell, was always bound to be a musician. The son of a jungle and techno producing father and a mother who used to sing, music was part of Marsh's life from the beginning. In a 2011 interview with Bigup Mag, the musician explained how he could play the piano by 7 years...

Sub Soldiers Salute

Caspa x FatKidOnFire

Most of you will be able to trace the producers who first got you into dubstep. I had a fairly slow time getting into the sound back in the day - but the following interviewee was one of two artists responsible for cementing my love for the dubstep sound. In 2007, Gary 'Caspa' McCann partnered with...

Yeah, yeah I’m still about

Matty G x FatKidOnFire

He's been quiet for longer than a hot minute, but if his mix for us here at FatKidOnFire is anything to go by, Matty G's back, raring to go and is once again a force to be reckoned with. About damn time. Having joined forces with longtime collaborator J:Kenzo for his first release on Artikal...
