“We released two digital EPs in 2017 – alongside a sell-out 300 press debut of our vinyl imprint. FKOFd‘s 2018 opens five months into the year with a four track adventure into Denver’s (via Ljubljana) take on the 140bpm sound. With his second solo release, Khonsu continues where his SURESTATE026 EP left off and cements his introduction on dubstep’s global stage with an incredible exploration of our favourite audial realm…
“Lennart’s one of the most exciting producers we’ve signed in an absolute age – and is testament to what’s going on in Denver, as well as the USA (not to mention the genre as a whole) in 2018. We’ve watched the city embrace and champion our sound and FKOFd033 is one of the soundtracks to that effort. Puzzled announces the release with a sonic onslaught that doesn’t really relent over the EP’s twenty minute-odd runtime. Suffocating bassweight, sparse atmospherics and crispy percs are the ingredients used, and Khonsu chefs up a delectable experience for us with his trademark experimental recipe – with track two, Recognize, continuing where the opener kicks off.
“Ghetto, in contrast, takes a tribal swerve and an 808/ hiphop-esque meander before we welcome the Slovenian bassweight masters Dubdiggerz to the fold with their take on Puzzled. It’s everything we’ve come to expect from the duo and rounds off an incredible addition to our FKOFd catalogue and your 140bpm arsenal.
“As always, we sign material from musicians we know are destined for great things. While DubDiggerz have captured some well-deserved acclaim with their recent releases, we know Khonsu will grab the soundsystem faithful by the throat with this release and you’ll be hearing more from him soon. Watch this space, this guy’s a madman on the buttons!”
