Goth-Trad – Sinker / Sunbeam VIP

FKOF Review

Whenever the wider dubstep community encounters news about a forthcoming Goth-Trad release, the thrilled global response ripples across our shared networks. On a personal note, I’ve woken up to Cut End every day for the last three years (a gentle reminder of the superb experience I had when visiting...

Jack Sparrow – Hold and Pull

FKOF Review

Another month brings another categorically brilliant release from the DEEP MEDi MUSIK family. With dubstep's leading imprint banging out a release nearly every four weeks, it's definitely a good time to be a fan of the dubstep sounds Mala and the MEDi team help champion. And the latest release is prime...

Biome – Cypher EP

FKOF Review

With an ever-increasing list of big releases having dropped in the first few weeks of the new year, it’s safe to say 2015 is going to be big twelve months for bass music. Whether based on the continuing vinyl resurgence or the rising number of digital releases appearing: our scene seems to be a...

Cris Fern – The Groove

[Artist Highlight]

We've written about Chris ‘Cris Fern’ Ferrantello many, many times here on FatKidOnFire since we first discovered his music. It's still not quite sunk in that he's no longer with us to pop up to discuss his latest cat video, update our shared Dropbox folder or sign another release contract - but,...

Truth – How Strange EP

FKOF Review

In my mind, there are two things worth noting about the following post. First, the label that's releasing the EP we're reviewing. To have an imprint like Tempa on these pages is a real, genuine milestone for FatKidOnFire - and one I'm not sure I'd ever imagined we'd reach when I first started doing...

Kloudmen x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

We rarely come across a producer (let alone a producer duo) who’s sound feels so natural in its early stages. Back when we were hosting the very first FKOFOKUS session in London, we heard their beats getting dropped by our boy Beezy - and we've kept a close eye on them since. Discovering that the...

Straight to the Chemistry

Seven x FatKidOnFire

For those of you who've followed FatKidOnFire since the early days, you'll be well aware of London's Seven. The producer has been a regular on these here pages since we started - having played a formative part of my first few experiences of the dubstep sound some four or five years ago. Over the...

Bad Weather

Starwalker x FatKidOnFire

It's not often you get the chance to work with one of your childhood musical heroes, so as a fan of ambient electronic music when we were approached to host a FKOF free download from one of the founding members of Air I got pretty excited! Air's Jean-Benoit Dunckel and Iceland's Bardi Johannsson are...

Nanobyte – FKOFd005

FatKidOnFire Presents

We're now four releases into the FatKidOnFire digital - or FKOFd - label. Each of our releases have reached #2 or higher on the Juno Download Deep Dubstep chart (all thanks to the work of Dubfreq, Subreachers and 11th Hour, AKX and DubApes); which, given the label is a mere five months old, is what we...

And if you've been enjoying what we've been releasing so far, you'll be pleased to hear we've just finalised...
