So remember Feed Me – the lovely British fellow who signed to Deadmau5‘s Mau5trap label? You know, the guy whose beats are so fat you leave the club full and needing a cigarette? Yeah, that guy.
Well, it’s been a while since we heard from him. There was the Escape from Electric Mountain EP back in the winter, which was out of control. But since then he’s been pretty quiet.
But no longer! Dude is back — and dude is deadly.
What he’s made is a little guest mix for BBC Radio 1′s Annie Nightingale. Except there’s nothing “little” about it. This is 23 minutes of purest pleasure. He has not forgotten any of his technique — in fact, he’s enhanced his style a bit. His mixing ability is second to none, and the track choice … well, you’ll see.
Something to get you through your Thursday: FEED ME in da mix!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thought I would share today some spanking new tunez that just won’t wait until Friday today. All three have a big-room sound, but without the formulaic rhythms that so often typify the genre. that seems so mandatory on all our favorite tracks.
First up is a remix from Swedish giant Alesso. He takes Keane‘s lullaby-ish tune and flips it right on its head. One thing I’ve noticed about Alesso: he rarely takes on the kinds of tracks that are popular to remix. Which is to say, you’re not going to see him do a Britney Spears single just for the sake of it. (Big exception: his massive remix of Avicii‘s “Levels.”)
The next comes from Munich native Thomas Gold. He takes on “The Wave” from Swedish pop stars Miike Snow. It’s a song that’s been remixed more than a few times, but Gold’s version seems to be getting a lot of love around the globe. Thomas Gold reminds me a lot of fellow German DJ Kris Menace. Not so much in sound or style, but in terms of musical ability. You can hear it in this song — all the different ups and down, and the ever-shifting … formats, I guess, for lack of a better word. If you’re anything like me, you may find you don’t love this track straight out of the gate. But you definitely will grow to appreciate it.
OK, time to ‘fess up: the real reason for this post is to highlight this new release. For the last month, Eric Prydz has been leaking tracks from his new album, Eric Prydz Presents Pryda, which comes out next week. Let me state this as calmly and quietly as I can: BUY THIS F**KING ALBUM! Prydz is THE godfather when it comes to making house music. Ask any new producer … scratch that, any producer who has launched a career in the past 10 years: they’ll tell you Eric Prydz is the role model and inspiration who helping them develop their style. This track is the kind of Pryda production I love: full of energy and enthusiasm, great before the party … and during the party … and after.
Oh, and did I mention the album is THREE discs? Huge!
Apologies if today’s post is a little rushed, but there is a certain team that resides in Catalonia, Spain, and they have a little Argentinian who just so happens to be — not to overstate the case — the Second Coming, and … well, they’re playing today and I’m in a hurry to get my seats sorted.
With that little magician in mind, I present the newest sounds from mister Rusko. Now, I’m not 100 % sure that this is his beat … buuuuut he posted it on Twitter, the comments underneath say Rusko, so I’m going with it. In case you didn’t know, Rusko is that dude. Livest show on the planet: migraine-causing beats to accompany a swag unmatched. The pale-faced assasin is worthy of headliner status no matter what festival he’s at. Be sure to stock your iPod with loads upon loads from this man’s library.
Let’s waste no more time talking – let’s enjoy his creations. Just a couple of jams to tease from the man from Leeds. (u see what i did there …)
