[Scooter rocking the latest must-have Dj accessory; the FKOF face!]
In the second instalment of FatKidOnFire mixes from Columbus tonight, Dj Scooter brings his delectable mix of teh dutty dubsteps to FKOF HQ’s Dj decks. This mix is a personal favourite of mine - superbly mixing another banger of a track list together into a seamless 43 minute beaut. We’ve been spoilt for choice with sick mixtapes today!
Get it turned up, get the lights off and lets get ravey…

It’s been 10 days of mixtape heaven here at FatKidOnFire HQ. We’ve been chilling down on the south coast for a family wedding (congrats Ali and Neil!) and are now in the process of winding up the week and heading back to LDNtown. To help with the 5 hour drive home, Dj Scooter returns to the FKOF HQ wheels of steel for an hour long OG jungle mix.

If you guys are feeling the mix, hit Scott up on Twitter and let him know - he’ll appreciate the love. If you’re looking for more of the junglist mixlife, catch Dj Scoot on his Soundcloud page and also peep his new venture Low Octave Theory - some sick dubs up on that page!
Peace, love and respect.
PS - anyone missed this? I applied for the Digital Journalism category in the 2010 Guardian Student Media Awards months and months ago - got an email on Tuesday saying I’d been shortlisted! I’m 110% stoked that FatKidOnFire is getting love from the 70 countries we’ve had hits from and from the Judges on the SMA panel. Big love to you all - thank you for all the support so far
Dj Scooter returns to the FatKidOnFire HQ Dj booth with a very special mix. As previously stated, Scooter and his partner in crime Jah-Killin are expecting a babby basshead come the end of November and Scott’s latest mix… I was going to try and describe it but not quite sure I can do it justice. Here’s what Scott had to say:
This is a mix I made for my lovely lady Jacquelyn W. (AKA Jah-Killin) who is carrying my baby boy Zehn Riley Hinton. Zehn, or Riley as he will be addressed, is expected to greet the world on 11/24/2010!!! This mix traverses multiple styles & exhibits exactly what I bring to the table as a Dj… However, this mix is also deeply rooted in portraying songs that I feel Jacquelyn would especially vibe to, as well as creating a smooth, seamless mix & mash-up of styles original & includes a track that i produced myself! …***(LISTEN FOR THIS MIX B/C I DROP MY TRACK AS A WAV FILE & MIX 2 RECORDS W/ IT WHILE TRANSFERRING B/T STYLES)***… There may be a few foul-ups along the way but I hope you all enjoy! & DOWNLOAD people!!! You never know it may grow on you!!!
Seeing as we’re doing a bit of celebrating here at FatKidOnFire HQ, I might as well throw in a few “Thank Yous” whilst I’m here. FatKidOnFire reached another large milestone at the start of the week - the site hit FIVE THOUSAND VIEWS and is almost at 3,000 unique visitors. I currently have 405 followers on Twitter and 349 fans on Facebook. Thank you to everyone who’s visited the site, re-tweeted stuff and followed my inane ramblings on Twitter and clicked “Like” on Facebook. Thank you!
Peace, love and respect. “Zehn~Riley”
PS - In case you (thankfully) missed the few hours of downtime we had at FKOF HQ this morning, please don’t be worried. The new servers (for the new site) have kicked in, hence having reverted to http://fatkidonfire.tumblr.com as this has caused problems with Tumblr integration and suchlike. The new .com site will be going live in the next few weeks so stay locked! Also, for all of you having trouble emailing me today the issues have now been sorted. The new email servers/ accounts are up and running!
That’s FatKidOnFire keeping Dj Scooter's records safe. Such a big look being repped by the international fam!
Tonight’s bumper update continues with another mixtape from Dj Scooter. This may be the last until tomorrow morning as it’s finally started to cool down and I was up until 4am yesterday morning. Playing the long game isn’t conducive to getting coherent updates written so I’ll keep this short.

Heavyweight track list as always. Listens like the banger you know it is!
Peace, love and respect. “All [F]*c[K]ed up [O]n the [F]atkid…”
(Thanks to B.B. Manik for sharing this!)
Now this video is (most definitely) visually appealing, but I think it’s a shame the backing track isn’t a bit more lively.. Why not mute the video and listen to the next installment in Dj Scooter's FatKidOnFire mixes?
We’ve finally had another FatKidOnFire interview so I can post another of Scooter’s sick mixtapes. I’ve got many more interviews for your enjoyment lined up in the next few weeks so thought you’d all want awesome music to accompany either Daisy Lowe gyrating provocatively or the IamBassment interview I just posted. Your choice - I’ll understand if you choose Daisy but please try to do both!
Get your stereo ears on and turn the volume up to 11. This is heavy

Remember to hit up Scooter’s Twitter account if you’re feeling this jungle/ drum ‘n’ bass/ hip-hop FatKidOnFire mix!
Peace, love and respect. “So enjoy my crunchy box of Beaties cereal…”
Continuing the musical theme running this week here at FatKidOnFire HQ [it’s a) unintentional b) not a bad thing in my book(!); but hopefully there’ll be more interviews to read sometime in the next few days] the latest addition to the musical side of the FKOF family is producing mixes for us all the way from across the Atlantic - Columbus, Ohio to be precise.
My geography is pretty rubbish, in case you’re like me and didn’t know how Columbus and London relate to each other here’s a (fairly poor) representation of where Scott is with respect to FatKidOnFire HQ. A rough guestimation put that red line (direct from London to Columbus) at 4,000 miles. That’s a long way!
Anyhow, I’ll let the main man tell you a bit more about himself…
Name: Dj Scooter aka Scott Hinton
Location: Columbus, Ohio, USA
Bio: I’ve been spinning since early 1998 in clubs and at a few underground parties. I started out spinning jungle and drum & bass but moved into hip-hop, trip-hop and downtempo. 2008 saw me introducing dubstep into my repertoire, as well as dabbling in a bit of production with a few friends along the way. Nowadays, I help throw a local Sunday night weekly of underground dance music. I also spin for PUSH! Productions out of Columbus, Ohio as well as being a new addition to the FatKidOnFire family!
It’s a damn decent introduction and you’ll be hearing weekly (or as near as we can work it) from Scott - we’ve got weekly minimixes lined up to keep you all on your toes. As always, if you’re feeling this introduction from Dj Scooter, you’ll find him on Myspace, SoundCloud (Myspace is dead) and Twitter. Holla at my boy!
Peace, love and respect. “Dubbety Dub Dub Dubstep Malarkey”
