Following on from where we left off with Dark Harmonics’ FKOFd018, the latest addition to the FKOFd back catalogue sees us welcome another entirely new member to the FatKidOnFire family. And, as far as debuts go, this is probably the best we’ve ever had…
“Germany’s Causa first got in touch in June last year, contributing his sound to the steady influx of submissions we get through the FKOF inboxes. When we listened to the young producer’s tunes we were – no exaggeration needed – absolutely astounded by what we heard. We see FKOFd as a platform to launch producers’ careers, bringing music to the global FKOF audience. With music as good as the four tracks on Causa’s FKOFd019, almost all of that work is done for us.
“For once, FKOFd019 is an EP that doesn’t need reams and reams of text written about it. The music says everything it needs to – and often going above and beyond what you’d expect to. If there was a release in the FKOFd back catalogue that best epitomised where the label’s ‘sound’ lies – this is it. Dismaying opens the release with its futuristic take on sparse bass-led monstrosities. Mighty Dub, somewhat unsurprisingly, does exactly what its title suggests. It truly is a mighty dub (see what we did there) – paying respects to the founding sound but bringing it uptodate with a 2015 twist. Invasion Dub charges the beaches and takes no prisoners. It’s six minutes of pure sonic warfare, a tune that will command respect from both selector and dancefloor. Fourth and final inclusion Blaster is probably the biggest anthem (although, in our opinion, all four are) on the release – it is absolutely gargantuan. And, given the response it’s had, that’s something everyone seems to agree with.
“If our goal is to champion the underground or relatively unknown producer, FKOFd019 is the best example of this goal being achieved. With his debut FKOF release, Causa’s both obliterated our expectations and raised the bar for what follows…”
Causa’s FKOFd019 is out via Juno and all other good electronic retailers from 18/05/15. The release has an all-new look we’ve created with the team at Pirate Radio Creative. Another release, another artwork rethink…
As always, Korrupt and I will be looking after FKOFd – but the rest of the FKOF gang will be keeping an eye and an ear out for exciting bass-led music. Please send us your music to:
We’ll do our best to listen to it all!
And, as always, we’d like to say a huge Thank You to everyone supporting FKOFd. We wouldn’t be here without you!
Peace, love and respect.
