It's been a while since electro artist Feed Me teamed up with mau5trap on a release – since 2012, in fact. But we should have known something was cooking between the two when the UK producer and DJ went on tour alongside deadmau5 for a few months earlier in 2017. But the time as come, as he debuted his latest EP, Feed Me's Existential Crisis on the label on Friday. Featuring five tracks – including a collaboration, "Crazy Maybe" with Kill the Noise and Anjulie – the EP explores the intersection of electronica, tech and the harder, bass-infused sides of dance music.
Of course we usually see this kind of thing from deadmau5 himself, but there's something different about Feed Me's new music. While taking on the dark, electro-tech side of things, he interjects moments of clarity, uplifting vocal and even some synths you could call "sparkling." These moments are what make this EP memorable, and a reminder of how unique and less sought after this kind of sound is. Existential Crisis is out now via streaming platforms and via Beatport.
