After a short hiatus during 2009, it was with West London based Kye Gibbons aka Foamo, who Paul Arnold chose to re-launch Fat! Records, back in 2010.
The stand out Jookie / Centavo 12” was a huge hit for the blogosphere community and earned top praise from the likes of DJ Zinc, Rob Da Bank, Jack Beats and The Bloody Beetroots’ Bob Rifo, who dubbed him “the new Switch”.
That first release for Fat! went on to cement the foundations for what has proved to be a hugely fruitful career for Kye.
His breakthrough singles Celestial, Ocean Drive and Vibrations followed during the summer of 2011, as he earned a cracking residency for We Love… Sundays at Space in Ibiza.
Undoubtedly one of the most successful UK exports of recent times, we’ve enjoyed watching Kye become a regular staple for Rinse FM, earn a huge fan in Laurent Garnier and most notably, make inroads as one half of the chart smashing duo, Gorgon City.
Hits is a retrospective of Foamo’s material released on Fat! that includes the 2012 Rumours EP and remixes from My Nu Leng and Kry Wolf, which featured on the Sherlock Remixes EP in 2013.
The compilation is out on Fat! Records via all digital stores and available from The Fat! Store here.
