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...

A pretty good year…

FatKidOnFire in 2012 [Recap #1]

In keeping with (the beginnings of) tradition, I figured given we're staring into the business end of 2013 and saying our goodbyes to 2012 it's about time to start rounding off the past twelve months...  [A taste of what's to come in 2013?] I'll go through the most well received mixes (as I did last...

Out and About (Fieldview Festival 2012)

[Recap]

A few weeks ago, I was offered a writing position for What's On UK – below is my first (of hopefully many) contributions to the site. I'll put this post up in full, but in future I'll just publish an extract and the outbound link to the What's On blog... -- It's been a good few years since I last...

Out and About (Reconstrvct 1st Birthday)

[Recap]

There was a while a few years back (and to an extent today – but on a lesser scale) where every dubstep event I went/ was invited to had been put on and marketed by the same few promoters (something I recently discussed in the 'What is Dubstep?' post). But as things calmed down and the decent events...

Out and About (GetDarker b2b Dubstep Bastards)

[Recap]

It's fair to say the GetDarker b2b Dubstep Bastards weekend two weeks ago got more then a bit messy. I've been pretty much a broken man since I got back to London – as some of you will no doubt have heard! Unsurprisingly, given the event had sold out, Cable welcomed a fairly massive crowd to the...

FatKidOnFire in 2011 [Recap #1]

2011 was a pretty amazing year for FatKidOnFire, the Facebook page broke 500,000 impressions, the SoundCloud, Twitter and Facebook accounts all surpassed 1,00 fans and the site had hits from 2/3 of the globe. And it's only a few short months until the site's second birthday; which is a pretty amazing/...

Mos Def and Ben Sherman at #BSXOYO

Out and About on 12/05/11

So last Thursday we got an invite to Ben Sherman's Charity gig at XOYO with Trekstock, Lifebeat and the one and only Mos Def. We took the trusty FatKidOnFire camera down to the event (which then died) so we took some photos on the iPhone (apologies that some of the photos are a bit rubbish) so we could...

Out and About on 12/03/11

We've reached the end of the road as far as our recaps for Saturday 12/03/11 go. First we had Johnny Cupcakes invading London and then we had Michael De Feo and PONY at the ODG. After we had a few Brooklyn Lagers (our new favourite beer) at the ODG and went home for a much-needed sit down, the makeitgood...

Michael De Feo and PONY at the ODG [Recap #2]

Out and About on 12/03/11

After we bore witness to the complete and utter (but brilliant) madness that was the Johnny Cupcakes Bakery Shop opening on Saturday 12/03/11, we ventured north from Fouberts Place in Carnaby to Bloomsbury to meet the wonderful Mr. Michael De Feo at the Orange Dot Gallery in Bloomsbury. We covered the...
