Feed Me has released his Family Reunion EP on Sotto Voce Records and it may just be his most eclectic work yet. At a family reunion one can see the divergence in a particular family. You can almost say the same about Feed Me’s EP. Family Reunion ranges from tropical to trap and everything in between. This is not your fathers Feed Me. That’s not to say it's unrecognizable, Feed Me’s familiar thumping basslines and signature growls are present.
High Speed Weekend Survivor starts of the EP with progressive feel and some sampling that reminds me of Porter Robinson. Letting the song breath through one drop until it unleashes the oh so familiar Feed Me bass. The track rolls on from there with a static yet controlled feel.
Stay Focused is a fun almost funky track that skips along on the strength of the synth and bass. Feed Me works his magic on what would be a deep house track by adding his digital filth and upping the tempo, this one is for you shufflers out there.
Red Clouds (Serious Ting) uses a resampled hook from Cloud Burn, one of the hits from Feed Me’s Big Adventure EP. This track has an extremely dark, gritty, (one might say Feed Me) vibe to it. With wobbly wubs and glitchy synths this is dubstep Feed Me fanatics such as myself can connect with.
What It Feels Like Feat. Nina Nesbitt is a track that will bring a lot of new fans to Feed Me. A well-constructed electro house tune mild yet vivid. I can only imagine what this song would be like live with teeth. The star of this track is the vocals of Nina Nesbitt.
Schizoid starts off in classical Feed Me fashion with a conversation sample that gets stretched and warped while a drumstep intro winds up only stumble perfectly into a filth ridden trap drop. Hard hitting gritty and bouncy Schizoid awakens dormant trap bows.
Trouble feat. Kaneholler is the 6th track on EP and even though it has been out for four months now I still find it the most intriguing song of the bunch. With haunting vocals weaving in and out of a bass line fit for the movie Inception this song goes deep.
American Cemetery is in a world of its own. A breakbeat track with notes that fall fireworks on the 4th of July. This is Feed Me showing his range and doing it well.
