Contemporary bass music with a Classical twist

Mantra Music x FatKidOnFire

A few months ago, ST Holdings - one of the key distributors of independent vinyl record labels - announced they were scaling their business back.

Juss B – FKOFd010

FatKidOnFire Presents

Having released our first American-produced EP a few months back with Bakir’s brilliant FKOFd008, two releases later we’re following up with another American artist. Although Torrey is based in Bali these days, he’s a producer we’ve long been a fan of - so much so we’ve had this EP scheduled...

Bakir – FKOFd008

FatKidOnFire Presents

We like to think discovering (and subsequently supporting) new producers has always been a key part of the role FKOF plays in bass music. But it’s only in the last few years that that role has extended to working with new or upcoming record labels - be that through our FKOF Promos, Release Highlights or...

Live From The Future (Extended Edition)

FKOF Review

Given the response the imprint has had since its launch, you'd be hard pressed to find a dubstep label taking off quite like Uprise Audio. Just seven releases into its catalogue, Uprise has scaled quicker than most labels do in their entire lifetimes - something that, if the upcoming release is...

FatKidOnFire in 2013

A Recap

2013 was a fairly productive year for the FatKidOnFire crew and I. I never quite got around to putting a 'FKOF in 2012' review together at this point last year, but the last 12 months have been so impressive that I figured it'd be rude not to do it for this year just gone. The following is a rather...

After the fourth FatKidOnFire Presents feature with Tempa's latest signee AxH in September, we shifted our focus from FKOF Presents here on the site to FKOF presents FKOFd on Juno (and most other good electronic retailers)... But as the year comes to a close, we've resurrected the series for the...
