RELOAD with J. Sparrow, Silkie and Commodo

[Recap]

Our last trip to Utrecht’s RELOAD left us near overwhelmed - it was one of the best dances we've attended in The Netherlands over the last few months (if you missed it, you can read about the session here). With the first and second editions selling out (perhaps due to artists like Karma and Kaiju...

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...

FatKidOnFire in 2014

A Recap

Every year, with every Year in Review, I discover (sometimes surprisingly, sometimes not so much) that the 12 months being recapped have been better than the years before.

Loftas | Vilnus | 28/12/13

We've featured the Soundboys crew, based out of Vilnius in Lithuania, before here on FatKidOnFire - last summer in the run up to their event welcoming Kryptic Minds and Toast (which also had one of the best promotional videos for an event I've seen in a long time). At the end of December, they welcomed...

FatKidOnFire in 2013

A Recap

2013 was a fairly productive year for the FatKidOnFire crew and I. I never quite got around to putting a 'FKOF in 2012' review together at this point last year, but the last 12 months have been so impressive that I figured it'd be rude not to do it for this year just gone. The following is a rather...

Bonobo’s ‘The North Borders’ Tour

Paradiso | 21/11/13

"Bonobo has a long history of unearthing new talent and his latest album 'The North Borders' sees him do so once again. The startling vocals of new collaborator Szjerdene are sprinkled across the LP, and Simon Green has yet again found the perfect voice to enhance where he's at. With a huge run of...
