This weekend‘s probably going to ruin me. But at least I can rest easy knowing I’ve finally broadened the focus of FatKidOnFire’s musical scope – by getting the first ever strictly 170bpm mix up and featured on the site.
I’ve been meaning to start focusing on more than just the ‘dungeon sound’ that has apparently become synonymous with FatKidOnFire, and I’ve noticed that I’ve started listening to more 170bpm bits and pieces over the past 6 weeks or so.
I discovered Ruffan‘s mixing skill a bit before Christmas, primarily his superb selections of 140-170bpm tunes. We got chatting over the past few weeks and I raised the idea of him contributing monthly 170bpm mixes to the site – and he’s more than kindly obliged! The more time I spend listening to mixes, the more similar they become – but I’ve discovered a few standout DJs who keep things interesting. In my opinion, Josh is one of them.
Ez all, the name’s Ruffan and I’ve been mixing about two years now. I’ve followed FKOF for a while now and got talking to Wil. I actually mix alot more dubstep than dnb but this is one site that isn’t short of proper dubstep!
More than pleased to be putting together a monthly 170bpm mix, along the same sort of lines of the dubstep I like; space for bass with some nice percs. Hope you enjoy!
