FEED ME–known as one of the greats in the electronic genre–has returned to mau5trap with his unique brand of hard-hitting, bass-heavy electronica for the new EP FEED ME’S EXISTENTIAL CRISIS, his first release with the label since 2012 that’s out today (5/19). Fans can purchase the new EP here.
The new five-track EP–which was finished while on tour this spring with deadmau5–marks the eighth overall release on mau5trap and first since 2012’s Feed Me’s Escape from Electric Mountain EP which reached the top-15 on the U.S. dance chart moving FEED ME further into his inimitable sound, touching upon everything from electro house to dubstep. Following that release, FEED ME hit the road in 2013 with a sold out 20-date U.S. tour where he took his colossal live show–a mega 20-foot LED “TEETH” structure–across the country, launching the FEED ME experience to a whole new stratosphere and subsequently taking the tour international including numerous festivals. Following his huge success FEED ME released his debut artist album Calamari Tuesday which shot right up to #1 in the U.S. dance charts and secured top spots in many other countries worldwide.
PRAISE FOR FEED ME’S EXISTENTIAL CRISIS:
“‘Existential Crisis’ is Feed Me on a funky, disco vibe. It’s got a certain Daft Punk groove to it, with the sound of screeching guitars, interstellar synths, and filtered noise…It’s a solid five minutes of dance floor energy with the kind of sonic attention to detail that makes Feed Me’s music so great for audiophiles. Definitely put your headphones to good use with this one.”
–Kat Bein, Billboard.com, May 15, 2017
“Feed Me is back with mau5trap for the first time since 2012, and he’s back in a big, big way…’Starcrash’ has that raw and engaging Feed Me sound that we fell in love with back at Feed Me’s Big Adventure so long ago. Even better than that, it has that twinge of electro and techno to it to make it all the more salacious.”
–Matthew Meadow, YourEDM.com, May 17, 2017
“The electro house track is gritty and technical, containing a heavy bassline and piercing synths. Once the energetic drums are introduced and the insane breakdown takes place, it is undeniable that ‘Existential Crisis’ is an incredibly produced song that has us eager to hear the rest of the EP.”
–Jack Meilner, ThisSongIsSick.com, May 17, 2017
“It [‘Crazy Maybe’ ft. Kill The Noise & Anjulie] creates an undeniable groove that will certainly lead to packed dance floors when Feed Me’s newest release, Existential Crisis, drops.”
–Michael Cooper, DancingAstronaut.com, May 18, 2017
ABOUT FEED ME:
Until he debuted his alias Feed Me in 2008, Hertfordshire, England-native Jon Gooch was known for his aggressive, hard-edged drum’n’bass productions as Spor. While Spor remained an ongoing outlet for Gooch, the producer quickly gained notice for his dubstep/electro-house hybrids as Feed Me; he signed to deadmau5’s mau5trap label and issued “The Spell” (2008) and the album Feed Me’s Big Adventure (2010), as well as the EPs To the Stars (2011) and Feed Me’s Escape from Electric Mountain (2012). He also increased his profile by remixing the likes of Chase & Status (“Let You Go”), Nero (“Innocence”), Gorillaz (“On Melancholy Hill”), and Robyn (“Call Your Girlfriend”). Calamari Tuesday, his second album, was released in 2013 reaching #1 in the U.S. dance charts followed by A Giant Warrior Descends On Tokyo in 2015 and Feed Me’s Family Reunion in 2016.
