Sectra – Visceral Vibrations

[Artist Highlight]

Sometimes we rely on music to feel things for us, so we don’t have to bear the crushing burden of our emotions all on our own. A powerful thing happens when we hear the darkest pieces of ourselves echoed back at us… We realise that we’re not alone – or maybe we are, but at least we’re okay with...

Introducing GourmetBeats’ GB008

His latest release on Joe Nice’s Gourmetbeats, the Elk EP, is precisely what we’ve been primed to expect from the badman...

Various Artists – Los Angeles EP

FKOF Review

Joe Nice, the American dubstep ambassador, has done it again. We’ve known him as a talented, charismatic and enthusiastic DJ, curator and performer — respected for his incredible live performances where he blesses the dance with red-hot dubplate after dubplate.

Axis in Rotation

FKOF Review

“So you laydeez like real dubstep, yeah?” Yeah, Mr. Smoking Area Man, we do. Despite being relatively 'new' listeners, we've been welcomed with open arms, integrating with ease into the community. We (my friend, M, and I) now live for the packed floors filled with steppers, peaceful vibes and...

The Art of Selection

Trying something New

It's not often we get pitched guest content here on FatKidOnFire - but when we do it occasionally demands attention.

N.O.W Is The Time

FKOF Review

My first introduction to George Evelyn’s ambient electronica trip-hop alias Nightmares on Wax was, admittedly, purely coincidental.

Truth – Hollow World

FKOF Review

Truth certainly didn’t squander the opportunity Mala gave them back in 2009 when he signed one of their first 140 productions, The Fatman, to his legendary Deep Medi record label. They released Terror Planet on Aquatic Lab only a few months later, and have since signed tracks on every major label in...
