Feed Me - Existential Crisis EP
22 / May / 2017
Feed Me — known as one of the greats in the electronic genre — returns to mau5trap with his unique brand of hard-hitting, bass-heavy electronica for the release of ‘Feed Me’s Existential Crisis’, his first release with the label since 2012. Out now, the new five-track EP was finished while on tour this spring with deadmau5.
‘Feed Me’s Existential Crisis’ marks the eighth overall release on mau5trap and first since Feed Me’s 2012 ‘Escape from Electric Mountain EP’, touching upon everything from electro house to dubstep. Following that release, Feed Me hit the road in 2013 with a sold out 20-date U.S. tour where he took his colossal live show; a mega 20-foot LED ‘Teeth’ structure, across the country, launching the Feed Me experience to a whole new stratosphere and subsequently taking the tour international including numerous festivals.
Feed Me says: “[The new EP] represents combining techniques and equipment old and new, and bridges a transitional period in my life. It encompasses 5 pieces of music and artwork. In coming back to mau5trap to release, time feels like a flat circle in a positive way, and it's exciting to work again with such a unique label that stands for individualism.”
“It's music to dance and forget about things for a short time while the world burns around us. It served as a precursor to touring with Joel on the lotsofshowsinarow tour, where I extended how I perform live and got constantly inspired by new music, new technology and new artistic opportunity. I find it important to constantly deconstruct, re-evaluate or reinvent myself or my surroundings, so with this EP and tour complete I take lessons and begin the next crisis.”
Following his huge success Feed Me released his debut artist album ‘Calamari Tuesday’ which shot right up to #1 in the U.S. Dance Charts and top 20 in the UK Dance Charts.
