I’ve just finished my penultimate exam (yeah that’s right, I’ve got one exam left) so what better than to celebrate with yet another mixtape?! I know I’ve been flying the dubstep flag higher than I probably should be, there is only so much bass one can take after all (who am I trying to kid?!), so in case any of you aren’t into teh dirty dubsteps the latest addition to the FatKidOnFire music family is primarily a dubstep Dj but we’re treading new paths as far as the genre of this next FatKidOnFire mixtape goes…
Starting out producing hip-hop on MPC, Sai decided to concentrate on mixing after moving to London from Burma. I adding dubstep and breakbeat to my repertoire and even spat lyrics in the Burmese hip-hop group Vokal as part of my musical apprenticeship!
I’ve held down residencies at London’s breakbeat stalwarts SUPATRONIX and Door. Promotions’ eclectic cross-genre night Never Grow Up. I’ve rolled with the likes of Rokit Science, sugarbeat(london), Your Mum, Trouble Vision, FiDGET, Ministry Of Sound, Wobble Squad and D.A.N.C.E.
I’ve been booked alongside some of rave’s leading lights including Pendulum, Chase & Status, Plastician, Reso, Brackles, Eddy TM, General Midi, Calvertron, Rennie Pilgrem, Slyde, Freestylers, Utah Saints, Elite Force, Rico Tubbs, A1 Bassline, Bass Weazal, South Rakkas Crew, Toddla T, Baobinga, Raffertie, Deekline & Wizard, SOTO, Plaza de Funk, 2 Bit Thugs, Orbital and many more.
I also founded the UK’s underground Djs & skateboarders group U.G.P. BASS, giving my library of basslines its own agenda and allowing it to push the boundaries of London’s eclectic bass-heavy scene
As I was saying, I was aware of the amount of bass I was throwing your way so please let me present Sai’s first hip-hop minimix. It’s a banger – would it be anything but?
