Review: Feed Me – Escape From Electric Mountain (EP)

Let us take you through a little green monstered EP journey…

Artist: Feed Me

Release: Escape From Electric Mountain (EP)

 

Jon Gooch, more commonly known by his stage names Spor and Feed Me, is a drum & bass, electro house, dubstep producer and DJ from Hertfordshire right here in the UK. He has been working like a mother in the scene both here and in the US for years and currently as Feed Me he is blowing up like nobodies business. On the 7th February, Feed Me dropped his latest EP ‘Escape From Electric Mountain’, so let’s take it for spin shall we?

One of the many reasons we love Feed Me is his mascot green monster and his artwork in general, as you can see with this EP’s cover his imagination is unparalleled. That talent feeds into his music and hits you right in the face with first track off the EP ‘Trapdoor.

Trapdoor’ enlists the help from Hadouken! who are a grime, electronica, dance band from London. With it’s smooth vocal and gentle first verse this track lulls you in to a false sense of security until the song starts to build into one hell of a chorus, then from that point the track doesn’t let go of your brain. This is defiantly one for driving after a hard day, in fact sod the driving and the hard day, play this song forever.

‘Relocation’ is one hell of a comedown after ‘Trapdoor’ which is needed to be honest. This sets up camp on the borders of chill out, minimal electro house and dubstep. While the track doesn’t grab you from the off, it does have it’s place. This track is perfect for those twilight hours in the summer.

‘One Click Headshot’ is next, which seem to draw inspiration from the Skrillex camp. It’s glitchy vocals, hard drops and general feel certainly makes it one of the high points of ‘Escape From Electric Mountain’. Taking it’s vocal sample from video game website ‘Purepwnage’, it can quickly develop into your new online gaming anthem.

‘Embers’, with it’s haunting female vocals which come from Lindsay, Jon’s guest on this track and eerie synths puts it in the same timezone as ‘Relocation’. While it can be seen as an awesome tracsitting can also feel the weakest from the EP.

‘Trichitillomaina’ is a very Deadmau5 type of track, tech house with build ups and hard drops. While it keeps in tone with the rest of’ Escape From Electric Mountain’, it somehow gives us a look in to Feed Me’s brain and where he could be going in the future.

The closing of the EP, ‘Whiskers’ which features Gemini, blends everything you’ve discovered on this journey. Taking elements from all of the previous tracks and mixing it in a huge Ableton shaped bowl, the track builds out, leaving you wanting more, a perfect end to a near perfect EP.

Feed Me’s ‘Escape From Electric Mountain’ is out now on Mau5trap and is available from Beatport, also coming soon to iTunes.
