I’ve been repping Feed Me a lot because I think everything the dnb icon turned electro-house monster is so incredibly unique, it deserves notice. I saw Feed Me twice at UMF. The first time he assaulted the crowd in the Korea tent with probably the loudest, most chest-pounding set I heard during the entire festival (perhaps having to do with my positioning in the tent directly next to the front speakers). The second was a surprise set that he did in between sets before Deadmau5. Although he wasn’t able to use the main stages primary audio channels, he still delivered with an onslaught of original songs. I didn’t recognize any from the Feed Me’s Big Adventure EP, so I presumed they were unreleased and began patiently waiting to hear them again. Yesterday Feed Me posted a preview of his new EP, Feed Me to the Stars, on his SoundCloud profile.
Like Big Adventure this 4-track EP contains a blend of electrohouse and dubstep, all infused with Feed Me’s bass-gnawing sound. The first track To The Stars is perhaps the best of the four. By far the most unique, the song’s colorful sound and guitar-shredding riffs make it destined for popularity. The second track Strange Behavior seems to be Feed Me’s take on Deadmau5’ Raise Your Weapon, offering a strong female vocal that swims in a pool of inegmatic dubstep potential energy until the floodgates are open and well… we all know what happens next. Pink Lady, the third track brings the most genre fusion of the EP with what can best be described as a dirty dutch house riff set atop an electro-dub beat. Chain Smoker brings up the rear on Feed Me to the Stars. I was actually least impressed with this song, finding it somewhat devoid of depth and sound, but I’ll save final opinions until the full EP drops soon. Keep a look out.
