N-Type

FatKidOnFire Presents #11

"N-Type is among Rinse’s longest-running dubstep DJs, having joined the station around 2003-2004 when the sound was still very much in its infancy.

FKOF Review

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...
