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...

The Inyoka EP

GourmetBeats009

Inyoka’s Gourmetbeats EP is decidedly not a political record. It’s a dubstep record. Still, music doesn’t exist in a vacuum, and, in the context of current affairs at the time of the release, it’s difficult not to imagine the minimal, melancholy masterpiece as an antidote to present political...

Argo – Nooo

FKOF Review

We always knew Argo was destined for great things. Even with his debut release that we signed back in 2013/2014, we knew the French producer/ DJ had that something special you need in the dubstep sound.
