Continuing the slew of updates from FatKidOnFire HQ is the next instalment from the makeitgood x FKOF series. After the (continuing) successes of the Fused Forces and Tehran Bass features and exclusive mixes, we’re proud to release another interview (and 30 minute exclusive mix) from none other than Dub Police’s producer/Dj Orien. Huge big up to Orien for taking the time to spin us a mix, really appreciate the support! If you’re on Facebook (who isn’t these days?) catch Orien’s profile and be sure to tune into his weekly radio show (listings on the page). Peep Orien on Twitter and be sure to catch him on Myspace.

What music are you listening to at the moment? Any recommendations? I listen to all types of music - I am very versatile and enjoy every genre there is.
Best producer/ Dj you’ve played a set with? Theres been so many and I would hate to choose one over another - I’ve been privileged to have worked with loads of fantastic producers/Djs.
Any advice to upcoming producers/ Djs? Produce your own sound - don’t try and follow anyone - make your sound unique… And never give up.
You’ve had the words, now have the music. This mix is dark, heavy and does not take any prisoners. Play this in a darkened room and be prepared to get your fright on. You have been warned!
