The Artist Highlight posts I was running have seemingly taken a bit of a back seat to the monumental progress the MakeItGood x FatKidOnFire series is currently making – as is everything else on the site at the moment. But, as with the brand interviews and non-MIG x FKOF content, everything’s in the process of equalising. It’ll (hopefully) happen eventually!
Forensics has been popping up all over my radar recently – with a few of his dubs making their way into recent MIG x FKOF mixes, as well as being floated around on SoundCloud and supported by a few of the artists I’ve got my eye on…
As you can tell from his bio below, Krystian’s been a busy guy over the past few years – racking up some amazing collaborations, support from all the right people and and releases on some well respected labels.
