New Music

It's time, unfortunately, for one of - or the last - the final New Music posts of 2014 here on FKOF. We might get one more out of Justify's before the new year, but I think you can all agree he's done an absolutely stellar job of curating some of the SoundCloud uploads he and we have been listening...

Lithuania via Bristol

[Event Highlights]

As far as I'm concerned, it's been a pretty good year for FatKidOnFire. The label's done well, this year's album went down well and we've gone from strength to strength with every network we're on (with a collective fanbase of nearly 35,000 people). Not damn bad! The one area I think everyone...

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...

Ain’t no party like a Rotterdam party

Blendits x FatKidOnFire

We've long been fans of the Blendits crew, a promotional team and record label based out of Rotterdam in The Netherlands. We went over to visit earlier this year, witnessing FKOF fam Kaiju, The Illuminated and TMSV (with MC Swift on mic duties) tear the venue a new one. So if you're free in a month or...

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...

The Voice of The Party

MC Swift x FatKidOnFire

Last year, we featured Subway Music’s head honcho Nicon. After publishing, we put our minds together and decided to bridge the relatively short gap between the UK and the Netherlands more often. We subsequently had the pleasure of releasing an awesome free download from Requake as a further...

DyAD x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

DyAD are a two man-strong production and DJ alias making sounds that seem to represent an entire army. Danny and Matt's winning entry in the Pressed Records/ Matt-U competition brought them to our attention, but they've set the bar and then raised it with the music that followed the Danger remix. Their...

Vol. 1 | Fokus FM | 08/02/14

Two weeks ago, we announced the two major radio partnerships we've established between FatKidOnFire and new internet radio stations Dusk and Fokus. Last Wednesday saw our debut radio show on Dusk - which went down a storm with the chat room and the listeners - and you can stream the entire two hour-long...

FatKidOnFire x Dusk.FM

You Asked. We're Delivering pt. 2

If you missed yesterday's stream of announcements on the FatKidOnFire Facebook page, we announced a new partnership with Fokus. We'll be invading their studios once every few months with a selection of our favourite producers and DJs. We also wanted to do something a little more frequent - something...
