A catchup with Kaiju

MEDi111 and more

NB: the usual SSL caveat applies – add ‘:’ into any broken links and they’ll work for you!  It's hard to believe that it's almost four years (technically, 3 years and 11 months next Monday) to the day since the last Kaiju release dropped on DEEP MEDi. As you’ll probably know, if you’ve...

Introducing Steph aka Yellakins

Diversity in Dubstep #3

NB: the usual SSL caveat applies – add ‘:’ into any broken links and they’ll work for you!  There've been peaks and troughs of content here on FKOF over the last 10 years, but it seems kind of fitting that in the 10th year we get to the 1,000th post on the blog. Even more fitting that the...

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...

“It was the atmosphere that I loved the most”

LD x FatKidOnFire

30 minutes of Kahn

A Bass Education

In our last feature, we did our best to explain the significance of the Bristolian scene and the impact it had on Peverelist’s musical heritage. As for the musician we’re paying homage to in #28, the 'Bristol sound' is simply part of the greater story. Kahn breathes musicality, and living in Bristol...
