MakeItGood x FatKidOnFire x North Base

[Competition]

It seems competitions here on FatKidOnFire are coming thick and fast this month (and rightly so given everything I've been celebrating recently). I recently announced the winner of the FKOF x Parlez Clothing comp (congrats Jonas!) and launched the FKOF x Heft giveaway earlier this week. Today, albeit...

#FKOF7

A long time coming

On this day, seven years ago, I installed the Google Analytics applet on the first version of FatKidOnFire's web presence. Every year since, I've celebrated 16th March as the FKOF birthday. 2010 marked the start of a pretty incredible journey - one that launched my career, introduced me to a business...

Dem A Talk

Compa's finally repressed it (but it's already sold out)

Edit 28/11/16: If you missed out on the repress, you missed out. All 500 copies sold out within 18 hours. Bootlegging’s always been an integral part of music culture — but it’s rare that a particular tune captures the attention of musicians or helps to define a particular time in a...

Kaiju – Seven Sins

FKOF Review

At the end of 2011, MakeItGood’s Lara and I were approaching the 100th feature in our collaborative feature series. As always, I was asking some of the artists I respected and admired if they’d be interested in collaborating — but taking the £100 spot. Beezy was the first to respond — and smashed...

“All the good small clubs we like are shutting down”

Walsh x FatKidOnFire

It’s been a minute since our last sitdown with Biscuit Factory Records bossman, DJ extraordinaire and dubstep producer Walsh. Too long, if you ask us. After a recent trip to Malaysia re-focused his efforts on producing new material, we caught up with the musician to find out more (and bagged a new...

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...

Hodge & Facta – TEMPA096

FKOF Review

Another month, another boundary-testing Tempa release. TEMPA096 sees Facta and Hodge join the revered imprint with their debut 12" release. And what a release it is... It's an interesting time for the Tempa label. Watching the imprint slowly evolve, from its tried and tested dubstep bread and...

Yeah, yeah I’m still about

Matty G x FatKidOnFire

He's been quiet for longer than a hot minute, but if his mix for us here at FatKidOnFire is anything to go by, Matty G's back, raring to go and is once again a force to be reckoned with. About damn time. Having joined forces with longtime collaborator J:Kenzo for his first release on Artikal...
