[Artist Highlight]

In my nearly five years of working on FKOF, I can count the number of times I've worked with a female producer or DJ on one (maybe two) hand.

No longer on the Sidelines

Vaun x FatKidOnFire

Another month, another quality release from Crises and the Mindstep Music team. Bristol's Vaun has long been on our feature hit list - and yes, we're ashamed it's taken this long - but hopefully the following interview, guest mix and FKOF Promo will make up for the delay. This is an extremely...

30 minutes of Distance

A Bass Education

“There are always going to be Ups & Downs”

EshOne x FatKidOnFire

"The elk (or wapiti) is one of the largest species of the Cervidae or deer family in the world, and one of the largest land mammals in North America and eastern Asia." Fittingly enough, elk-obsessed EshOne's sound, one we've featured before, is almost as large as the land mammal he named his record label...

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. This obviously meant that a number of labels that had signed up for vinyl deals were being dropped and their contracts cancelled. The move inspired a few...

Juss B – FKOFd010
