Nomine – Stomp / Slip

FKOF Review

We've just about recovered from the impact dBridge's two Dreads caused late last year. It was a worthy debut from Youngsta's Sentry Records and, if SEN002 is anything to go by, the imprint's shaping up to have an enviable catalogue of anthemic dubstep material. Yunx is back to deliver the latest...

Introducing Raincloud Records

FKOF Review

If you've followed FKOF for any length of time, you'll know we've got a lot of love for producer and DJ Caski - he's DJd a few of our dances, we've released a tune or two of his and we've done a fair few FKOF free downloads together over the years. Mike's family – and we were delighted to recently...

IN FOR BLOOD: GISAZA x DEEPEND!

FKOF Review

It's rare that we find music that stays with us for longer than a month after first listen; especially with the volume of good music seeing the light of day at the moment. Gisaza, a name you may not know yet, is the the producer behind this addictively impressive material. Mark – half of the...

Thoughts on Burial

Ten Years of HBDCD001

There aren’t many EPs or albums that resonate deeply inside the collective mind and soul ten years after their release. Ten years after the release of both his and Hyperdub’s debut album, Burial’s music still sounds as futuristic as it did in 2006. Burial, which appeared on Hyperdub on the...

2,000,000 Plays

Celebrating A Milestone

It took over three years to reach our first million plays on the FatKidOnFire SoundCloud. Looking back, as the account's following has grown (as you'd expect) we've seen a correlative growth in its engagement - but the last 18 months or so have been as near exponential as I've witnessed over FKOF's...

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...

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...

Out and About this weekend

It's been a while since the last Out and About post here on FatKidOnFire - in part thanks to my somewhat lacking social life but also thanks to all my favourite venues being shut down here in London, the birthplace of dubstep. So yeah. But luckily, there are promoters across the UK (and further afield,...

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....
