Causa – Undubbed / Medication

FKOF Review

One of the things we pride ourselves on, here at FatKidOnFire, is our ear for talent. Over the last 6+ years, as we've watched the global dubstep community evolve and progress, we like to think we've played our part in highlighting some of the real talent we find within the 140bpm sound. Causa is one...

Kaiju – Burn Down Babylon / Wrong Tings

FKOF Review

As far as we know, longtime FKOF fam Kaiju are the only producers to be exclusively signed to Mala's DEEP MEDi imprint. It's a partnership that works - some of the best bass music being created released by one of the best bass music imprints. It's hard to believe that we've not had a release from...

Lyeform – Stigma / TMSV remix

FKOF Review

With grime rolling through to reach the peak of its popularity cycle once more, the natural movement of the sound (and its wider influences) has enabled a number of new talents to flourish - producers, DJs and record labels. One such label is the newly established imprint Mo:zaïek Music. The...

The Algorithm – Brute Force

FKOF Review

And now for something completely different. Well, not quite. Back in May 2014, we reviewed an album that quite honestly blew our proverbial socks off. If you missed it first time round, The Algorithm's Octopus4 was a conceptual body of work that “tells the story of OCTOPUS4 (a Commodore 64 computer...

Piezo – Sweat / Sugar

FKOF Review

Although we're only three and a bit months into 2016, the new year's already standing on its own feet if we look at the releases we've had so far. At a time where the ever-present 'dubstep is dead/ boring/ whatever' discussion seems to have quietened down, March looks like it's going to be a massive...

Celebrating 5 years of Club Soda

FKOFFRLP003

One of the best things about FatKidOnFire (and there are many great things about doing what we do) is getting to work with producers, DJs and record labels both big and small around the world. And we've done that a lot over the last six years! As we approach our sixth birthday, we're really pleased to...

Compa – MEDi091

FKOF Review

It’s been nearly three years since Compa's debut release on the mighty DEEP MEDi. Looking back at the artist's discography, while full of sought-after tunes, it's MEDi075 that stands out as a hallmark of Will's career to date. So when we heard he was following up with an EP on Mala's imprint, we knew...

Tunnidge – Mobius Strip

FKOF Review

When I first heard Tunnidge - one of the dubstep sound's founding fathers - was gearing up to release his debut LP, two thoughts struck me. Firstly, I was surprised we hadn't seen an album from Tim sooner. But, as the saying goes, all good things come to those who wait. Secondly, were we going to see...

Motherland

Alpha Steppa x Kiangana x FatKidOnFire

Every so often, we get our hands on a tune that's a bit too special to try put too many words to. This FKOF free download appeared in our laps a few months back, and we've been waiting for a good opportunity to unleash it. That opportunity rolled around when we reached 10,000 fans on Facebook(!) a month...

Commodo vs. Gantz (MEDi090)

FKOF Review

In our community there are anthems. And then there are the anthems' anthems. Mala's DEEP MEDi imprint, one of the few labels consistently contributing quality musik to the masses, generally tends to answer the call for these anthemic productions. So when MEDi quietly lined up the release of two...
