British-based Jon Gooch, otherwise known as Feed Me, has been in the game since before electronic music blew up in the states and worldwide. Feed Me’s releases date back to 2008 – his impact on EDM would be hard to measure given it’s scale. Simply put, the electronic musician has been there with quality music, awe-inspiring shows, and a consistent creative nature that hasn’t escaped him to this day.
The next chapter in his musical life story is an 11-track self titled LP. We got a taste of what’s to come via the single, “Reckless,” now 10 other songs are available, creating a complete picture as to what the hype is all about and where he’s at in terms of his creative direction this year.
Importantly, the order and selection of the songs gives a traditional album-like impression rather than the collection feeling like singles stitched together. The cues built in across the EP add more personality and flavor that unequivocally enhance the experience.
There’s a song for everyone in this self-titled album, yet personal highlights include “Reckless,” ft. Tasha Baxter and “Frank Frezetta.” “Reckless,” stands out with an introverted nature and emotional delivery, which juxtaposes against many of the hard-hitting electro and house songs here. “Frank Frezetta,” gets down right weird in all the right ways, boasting wobbles that come in at the right moments and a seemingly tech-house inspired percussion side that structures the experience together.
Having played events like Fuji Rocks Japan, Creamfields, EDC, Reading & Leeds and Exit Festival, as well as many sold out events through his various tours, Feed Me has left a mark that keeps music fans curious as to what he’s bring to the table. His millions of streams and recognition within the industry is something he’s diligently built up for nearly 15 years.
