“Less negativity. More solidarity”

AxH x FatKidOnFire

We first met AxH in September two years ago with the truly awesome FKOF Presents feature we did with him. Since then, much has changed for the musician, and the wider international dubstep community. With recent spectacles like the DEEP MEDi Boiler Room takeover a few weeks back, the latest...

Chris Innasound x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

After publishing a number of features highlighting just how our scene’s flourishing in North America over the last couple of weeks, we figured it was time to change the record to celebrate our 20,000 strong community on SoundCloud. Back in the day, we started out by combining a passion for bass,...

30 minutes of D1

A Bass Education

Dwayne Marsh, as far as we can tell, was always bound to be a musician. The son of a jungle and techno producing father and a mother who used to sing, music was part of Marsh's life from the beginning. In a 2011 interview with Bigup Mag, the musician explained how he could play the piano by 7 years...

30 minutes of Headhunter

A Bass Education

Anthony 'Tony' Williams, the man behind Headhunter and, in more recent years, Addison Groove, has created an impressive discography. It's a discography that's shaped the dubstep sound as we know it. Inspired by the Bristol music scene, its significance on the producer's formative years...

Truth – How Strange EP

FKOF Review

In my mind, there are two things worth noting about the following post. First, the label that's releasing the EP we're reviewing. To have an imprint like Tempa on these pages is a real, genuine milestone for FatKidOnFire - and one I'm not sure I'd ever imagined we'd reach when I first started doing...

“I no longer limit myself”

Nomine x FatKidOnFire

"There's astonishing depth contained within Nomine's music. His three releases to date - two for Tempa and the Jahpan EP on Dubzilla - have displayed a vast breadth of ideas and an intrinsic ear for space and sound design. His is an immediately distinctive sound: echo-drenched melodies that drift like...

Celebrating An Uprising

Interviewing artists is often a very insightful experience and I find purposeful questions are a vital part of the interview philosophy. The reviewed ideas, motivations and beliefs are in a sense magnified through the interview process– while giving the artist a focused medium for expression. Getting a...

J:Kenzo – TEMPA083D

FKOF Review

While the 'Bloodlines' EP is still fresh in the mind for many of the loyal 140 cohort, with TEMPA083D, J:Kenzo prepares his third release on Tempa of 2013. Anyone remotely interested in dark 140 will be well aware of the lacklustre, social media-based paranoia that stipulates dubstep has had its day....
