The Mine’s 4th Birthday

[Event Highlight]

It’s always good to see an independent — in any walk of life — celebrate a birthday. Especially if the independent lasts past their first birthday (which is increasingly a rarity in the tough times we face these days). FKOF fam The Mine are four years old this weekend. As to be expected, given the...

The Illuminated (remixes) – FKOFd020

FatKidOnFire Presents

So here we are, nearly two years in and already celebrating our 20th release on our FKOFd digital imprint. We thought we’d push the boat out with this release; we wanted to do something a bit different given we’ve got this far and released so much amazing music. While we’ve championed debut material...

Axis in Rotation

FKOF Review

“So you laydeez like real dubstep, yeah?” Yeah, Mr. Smoking Area Man, we do. Despite being relatively 'new' listeners, we've been welcomed with open arms, integrating with ease into the community. We (my friend, M, and I) now live for the packed floors filled with steppers, peaceful vibes and...

FKOF Un/Known02

FatKidOnFire Presents

We took a leap of faith with 2013's Un/Known01. A small one, in the scale of things, but a leap of faith nonetheless. Roughly a year later, FatKidOnFire is now a proper, if digital-only, record label releasing bass music every month. The successes of our debut album, and the FKOFd EPs that followed,...

The two of them are responsible for many amazing sets together live, a superb Dubstep Allstars compilation and much more. Oh, and they're both at Fabric this Friday... I had a...

Versus: Round 1

[Event Highlight]

There's been a bit of a dearth of decent dubstep nights in London recently (with a few notable exceptions of course). No venue or promoter seems to be consistently providing a platform for established and upcoming artists to collaborate together on the one stage. But, after this Friday, there may...

Quest x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

As far as dubstep veterans go, Quest is up there as one of the most respected and favoured producers from the "foundation sound" days. And, unlike many of his peers from the era, the producer is still actually making the same level of quality tunes that first brought him to our attention all those years...

Bacon Dubs – Evolution LP

FKOFFRLP002

We've been working with Bacon Dubs founder Sparxy on and off for a number of years, both as an individual producer/ DJ and guiding figure behind one of dubstep's finest young labels. When we gave away our first ever free album last year, Rat's brilliant Around The World In 80 Riddims, I wasn't sure...
