Goth-Trad – Sinker / Sunbeam VIP

FKOF Review

Whenever the wider dubstep community encounters news about a forthcoming Goth-Trad release, the thrilled global response ripples across our shared networks. On a personal note, I’ve woken up to Cut End every day for the last three years (a gentle reminder of the superb experience I had when visiting...

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. But 2014 was such a standout year - in pretty much every way - that I'm unsurprised it's been our best on record. As was 2013's,...

The only good system is a sound system

Soundboys x FatKidOnFire

As far as FKOF events have gone in 2014, we've achieved more than I'd hope we would when I wrote the 2013 Review. We've done shows in Europe, the UK and even tested the waters on the other side of the pond with our first event on American soil. All of the shows we've been involved with have been...

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...

Soundboys at Loftas Fest

[Event Highlight]

Having travelled across a bit of Europe (and even less of America) I'm no longer surprised at the seemingly random but dedicated collectives who pop up and throw some truly amazing dubstep events. Sweden, Belgium, The Netherlands, Portugal, Finland, Lithuania - they're all places with vibrant if small...

The Mine at SUPYNES 2014

[Event Highlight]

In three days' time, the team behind The Mine that call Brighton (via Lithuania) home are taking their sound to a remote part of Aukštaitija National Park for this year's SUPYNES festival... "Echoes of intoxicating rhythm are calling from the deep of the woods. For the ninth year in a row, the...

Down The Mine

Duku & Sibla x FatKidOnFire

Having first met the duo during my Lithuanian dubstep adventure, and experiencing their skill behind the decks, I've been keen to feature Duku and Sibla here on FatKidOnFire in some form or other since returning from Vilnius. The duo co-founded, and are responsible for, Brighton's The Mine - one of the...

A Lithuanian Dubstep Adventure

Soundboys x FatKidOnFire

Last weekend, having worked with the collective for almost six months, I journeyed to Vilnius, Lithuania for my first time in the country to experience (and subsequently document) Soundboys in all their glory... Having spent the night in a (surprisingly comfortable) £40 room at the Easy...

M.U.D x Soundboys

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...

Out and About this weekend

It's been a while since the last Out and About post here on FatKidOnFire - in part thanks to my somewhat lacking social life but also thanks to all my favourite venues being shut down here in London, the birthplace of dubstep. So yeah. But luckily, there are promoters across the UK (and further afield,...
