Happy Birthday DMZ

Celebrating a Decade of DMZ

Ten years ago, all the way back in 2005, four friends started a collaboration that would launch a global cultural movement that would define their lives, their legacy and impact the lives of others across the world. Not many people can say they've done that... Tonight, we celebrate a decade of DMZ -...

FatKidOnFire in 2014

A Recap

Every year, with every Year in Review, I discover (sometimes surprisingly, sometimes not so much) that the 12 months being recapped have been better than the years before. But 2014 was such a standout year - in pretty much every way - that I'm unsurprised it's been our best on record. As was 2013's,...

Mala, Joe Nice & Process Rebel

True Soldiers Productions x ADE 2014

**Update 03/11/14 - the full event album is now live on FKOF FB** Earlier this month, I found myself stood in the middle of Amsterdam at the doors of Overtoom 301. For this trip I had been joined by Luiza, who had the honour of taking pictures as our FKOF photographer, and my good friend Joost (of...

30 minutes of Coki

A Bass Education

Some may say the beauty of dubstep lies in its moodiness and meditational vibe. This, perhaps, implies meditation cannot be achieved by raw, aggressive energy. But you'd be wrong to assume this implication is the case. If there is a producer that embodies this raw and aggressive side of dubstep, it is...

30 minutes of Jakes

A Bass Education

It'd be near irresponsible to document the roots of the dubstep sound without tipping the proverbial cap to the "other side" of what you'll normally find here on FatKidOnFire. It goes by many names - tearout, brostep, dubstep - but it has a ridiculously passionate following and, oddly given where it is...

30 minutes of Mala

A Bass Education

There are many ways you could describe DMZ co-founder, Deep Medi boss and all-round legendary guy Mark 'Mala' Lawrence. The embodiment of dubstep in its finest form? Yep. One of the greatest producers bass music has ever seen? Yep. We could go on. And on. There are many accolades we could use - but at...

Digital Mystikz visit Houston

Gritsy's Saving Dubstep

Roughly this time last year, I ventured to some of the dubstep sound's founding father's birthday party. DMZ 8 still stands as one of the most special experiences I've ever had working in our scene - partly thanks to the fact I met Gritsy founder Suraj and photographer Huy Cao. Since meeting them,...

Out and About (DMZ 8th Birthday)

[Recap]

Since getting home from DMZ's 8th birthday last Saturday morning, I've been trying work out how to write this post. I'm still not convinced I can put into words what the experience was; so I'll let the photos and videos I took do the talking... On Friday March 1st, I headed down to Great Suffolk Street...

Out and About this weekend…

Funnily enough, the last Out and About post I wrote preceded me blowing my eardrum (and putting myself out of action for almost a month) at the beginning of the year. Hopefully that's not a situation I'll be repeating anytime soon – but it is that time again. This weekend's got some beauties lined...

FKOFCOMP

*UPDATE: FKOFCOMP is now closed!* It's been a long time coming, but the FatKidOnFire Facebook page has just hit 1,750 fans. As I've been hinting at since I uploaded the FKOFCOMP album at the end of April, I've been wanting to celebrate the site's second birthday (from three or so months back) –...
