Orson – Production House / Fabrik

FKOF Review

As you probably expect, we get sent a lot of promos. In a previous life, we attempted to promo quite a lot of those promos (and probably didn't do you guys - or ourselves - too much of a favour with the volume of tunes we were promoting). But there occasionally comes a release so good that, even if we...

Benton does Boomtown

And apparently he's back on the 140

As the UK summer festival season approaches peak levels, I recently had the opportunity to sit down with long-time FKOF fam Benton (no, we're not the same person and yes, we do have the same surname) ahead of his latest appearance at Boomtown...

30 minutes of Coki

But you'd be wrong to assume this implication is the case. If there is a producer that embodies this raw and aggressive side of dubstep, it is...

30 minutes of Loefah

A Bass Education

Dubstep, in all its permutations, is a very special sound. Having grown from the depths of Croydon in South London to the mainstream stadiums of America (and Glastonbury), it is also a truly global sound. It has many names, many supporters and many haters - but whatever your opinion, there's no...

Out and About (DMZ 8th Birthday)

[Recap]

Since getting home from DMZ's 8th birthday last Saturday morning, I've been trying work out how to write this post. I'm still not convinced I can put into words what the experience was; so I'll let the photos and videos I took do the talking... On Friday March 1st, I headed down to Great Suffolk Street...
