The team at MusicRadar recently sat down for an interview with Feed Me, also know as John Gooch when not behind the 18 foot grin, and he gave an in depth view of his Teeth Tour from conception to touring the world. We were fortunate enough to catch Feed Me’s performance at the Music Box in Hollywood this year, and watching this interview gives a whole new meaning to the spellbinding performance.
Now looking towards the future, here’s a little something new Feed Me has forthcoming on Mau5trap. Annie Mac on BBC Radio1 debuted his latest track, Little Cat Steps, on August 17th, and this proves Feed Me is showing no signs of slowing down his production.
A little side note to the production of this new track, but Gooch not only produces the music behind the Feed Me persona, but he designed all of artwork for his album covers as well as the artwork for this track. He was working professionally as graphic designer before taking music originally as a dnb producer, Spor, and his latest electronic productions as Feed Me.
That said, we are absolutely pumped for his new music and we hope you dig it too!
2012 is going to be the year of Knife Party. Bold statement, I know. But given EDM’s massive surge in popularity, EDM and nonEDM fans alike are partying and listening to more producers/djs who are stepping out of the progressive house and big room scene. 2011 was the year of Skrillex and I’m predicting all eyes are going to be on these guys and their fresh sound.
Chances are that you have probably heard of this duo recently assembled of two members from the band Pendulum, Rob Swire (@Rob_Swire) and Gareth McGrillen (@GarethPendulum), and they have been tearing up every EDM festival across Europe and North America. They dabble in everything from electro-house, dubstep, drum and bass, drumstep and whatever clever subgenre names people come up with. McGrillen and Swire and huge advocates of using different sounds/tempos to help push the ever-expanding genre of bass music and they are the tippy-top of EDM acts to party to this summer.
Their new EP has missed a couple of deadlines with Knife Party constantly on the road but it will be out early this summer. Their last EP titled 100% No Modern Talking is a free download on their website that comprised of tracks such as Tourniquet and Fire Hive. They have also remixed tracks ranging from hip-hop producer Labrinth, to Swedish House Mafia, Porter Robinson, and Nero.
If waiting for their new EP is as agonizing for you as it is for me, they just released a completely twisted and demented video that might hold you over. Viewer discretion is advised!
Also, here’s a video of the Knife Party set live at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida this year. Rave your brains out to this as you power through to the weekend and happy Friday KNIFE PARTY PEOPLE.
Another young gun and break through artist of 2011 has caught the attention of the Noise Train and we’ve been jamming to his new Spitfire EP since its release last week. He hails from the town of Chapel Hill, NC and probably has the South so twisted upside down that they probably think it is hurricane induced (too soon?). Who is this mystery weatherman predicting a heavy downpour of thunderous bass music you might ask? Porter Robinson of course. Robinson isn’t even twenty years old yet and if this EP says anything about how his future, we should all hunker down and get ready for a storm of success.
I know it’s a little early to start looking back on 2011, but I think we can all agree that this is a foundational year for bass music and that genres have expanded in all directions. Moreover, Robinson’s talent developed this year and it is evident in Spitfire that he has incorporated the best of 2011′s progressive sounds, including a massive blend of dnb, dubstep, fidget, house, and moombahton. With the help of Skrillex to produce the first album on OWSLA records, Robinson’s was finely tuned so that the end result would resonate with listeners throughout the entire EDM scene.
Check out the new Spitfire EP and let us what tracks you dig most!
The NoiseTrain would like to introduce its first post of the Whomping, Wubbling, Wiggling, Wobbling, Wednesday series. That’s right! This is going to be a weekly feature that dives into the depths of electro sounds and nothing is out of the question. From house to drum&bass to dubstep and beyond, we’re going to get you warmed up as you enter the downhill stretch to the weekend. Without further adieu, let’s dive in.
I thought it only suiting to start off with one of the hottest new genres that’s been blowing up the dance floors around the world; moombahton. Born out of the Washinton D.C. electro-house scene, this sound can best be described as the illegitimate child of dutch house and reggaeton. This fluid tempo is centered around the flow of 104-110 BPMs and the sexy rythms of reggea and house. Moombahton is proving to be a limitless genre for dj’s to morph seductive, mellow, dancy, sexy vibes from all genres and while dj’s push its boundaries and the crowds groove out.
Get up, get down, or whatever you gotta do, but let the 2 step rock, your shoulders sway and your head bob with the beat. Here’s a few numbers to help get you started on moombahton’s addictive journey:
