You may have noticed I’ve been banging out new content left, right and centre here on FatKidOnFire over the past few days – possibly more than I’ve ever done so before.
Anyone been to Berlin? Thinking of booking a last minute week-long trip next weekend for my birthday… — Wil Benton (@FatKidOnFire) January 16, 2012
For those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter (and for those of you who missed the tweets), I’m off to Berlin tomorrow morning for a week-long holiday over my birthday on Wednesday – and I’m not taking the computer. It’s going to be a quiet week here at FKOF, so to make up for it I’ve been uploading the new mixes and features. Tonight, I’ve bumped the last two mixes up onto the FKOF SoundCloud account and then that’s it until I’m back next week!
First up is a mix from London’s C Tee. I’ve been following Chris for a while now; if you don’t know his ‘Moar Bass’ mix series I suggest you go Google it and download as many of the mixes as you can find (there are 15 kicking around as far as I know). His mix for FatKidOnFire is an amazing selection of 140-170bpm tunes from some of my favourite producers around. Definitely one to watch! Follow C Tee on Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud and Mixcloud – you definitely won’t regret it.
Next up is the debut mix from FKOF’s latest resident DJ. It’s been too long since there’s been one (although it’s not like we’ve been lacking!) so when Justify got in touch to offer monthly mixes I jumped at the chance. If you’re based in/ around the Birmingham area be sure to check the Black Drop events over the next few months as well. If the first Justify x FKOF mix is anything to go by they’ll be worth reaching!
Name’s Justify from Birmingham. I came across to the dubstep side from a deep and dark DnB background in 2011 – similar to the likes of what Kryptic Minds and Icicle did. I’ve always played the deep and dark minimal sound; nothing has changed in the style of dubstep I play. DnB-wise I’ve played at Hospitality/ Lifted/ Renegade Hardware here in Birmingham. I also run my own night called Black Drop – again it’s the deep and dark DnB sound. In 2012 we’ll be going down the deep and dark dubstep route as well.
Peace, love and respect,
