The Mine’s 4th Birthday

[Event Highlight]

It’s always good to see an independent — in any walk of life — celebrate a birthday. Especially if the independent lasts past their first birthday (which is increasingly a rarity in the tough times we face these days). FKOF fam The Mine are four years old this weekend. As to be expected, given the...

Kaiju – Seven Sins

FKOF Review

At the end of 2011, MakeItGood’s Lara and I were approaching the 100th feature in our collaborative feature series. As always, I was asking some of the artists I respected and admired if they’d be interested in collaborating — but taking the £100 spot. Beezy was the first to respond — and smashed...

Chokez – FKOFd029

FatKidOnFire Presents

Although our digital imprint is managed day to day by Korrupt and I (more so by Olaf at the moment - and what an amazing job he’s been doing), we work with a number of trusted tastemakers and FKOF fam to source some of the material we sign. This next EP, from one of the most exciting upcoming producers...

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...

Back in Bristol

[Event Highlight]

It's been a long minute since the last official FatKidOnFire dance. Too long, if you ask me. Well, this Friday, the drought ends. And, as we always try to do, we're making up for lost time. On Friday 6th May, we’re bringing a few friends to Bristol’s Start The Bus. It's going to be a dance to...

The Weekender

DEEP MEDi x Teachings in Dub

Last week, I packed myself into a suitcase and headed to the station for 48 hours of very little sleep and very many vibes. Travelling down to Bristol (via Bath), I knew the following few days were going to be good - but I wasn't quite prepared for just how good the DEEP MEDi x Teachings in Dub...

RELOAD with Om-Unit, Kaiju & Karma

[Recap]

Over the last five years (and even before FKOF's establishment), we've have had the opportunity to experience some amazing events across the world. While some occur on a more frequent basis, every single dance we’ve visited is more than just ‘a night out’. These gatherings inspire and...

Soundboys at Loftas Fest

[Event Highlight]

Having travelled across a bit of Europe (and even less of America) I'm no longer surprised at the seemingly random but dedicated collectives who pop up and throw some truly amazing dubstep events. Sweden, Belgium, The Netherlands, Portugal, Finland, Lithuania - they're all places with vibrant if small...
