Feed Me, just a few weeks out from his first full-length album release, has yet to soak in the success from Calamari Tuesday and is already preparing fans for more electro, dubstep, and progressive house tunes. Today, via his official Facebook, Jon Gooch announced news of not one, but two upcoming Feed Me EP releases. In true holiday spirit, the first can be expected to release around Christmas-time and the second to land at the end of January. Gooch hints at yet another album release to follow sometime after the two Sotto Voce releases. It seems like 2014 is rapidly filling up with great news from Feed Me.

Fool’s Gold Radio is back with their 23rd installment, mixed by Fool’s Gold co-founder Nick Catchdubs. One of many things that this “tastemaker label” excels in is its keen ability to create masterfully mixed sets with incredible assortments of innovative sounds. But what else would you expect from a business run by a couple of the best technical DJ’s out there? Nick starts this episode with the recently released “Radio Stereo” by Fool’s Gold’s own Duck Sauce. He quickly shifts gears into electro mode with various tunes by Nom De Strip, GTA and Crookers. Nick keeps the energy high at the halfway point with some hip-hop and twerk music with the help of Grandtheft & Smalltown DJ’s. Finishing off this saga, he dishes out a great selection of up beat dance club tunes, including those by Lxury and Feed Me & Crystal Fighters.Posted by
If we’ve learned anything about Jon Gooch over the past week, it’s that his real life persona is just as mischievous and cunning as his famed alter ego, Feed Me. While Jon provided no shortage of jest in our own interview with him, he went on to display his practiced wit by reviewing five tracks from the Beatport Top 100. Now, participating in a feature with Clash Music, we see another side of Jon altogether: a whimsical craftiness marked by brazen (typically alcohol-induced) spontaneity.
In the candid feature, Feed Me shares no less than six idiosyncratic anecdotes from his tour life over the past few years. Highlights include spraying Datsik with chemical powder, drunkenly cavorting with Joe Ray of Nero, and making a Hotel ceiling sandwich with Flux Pavilion. Check out the full story at ClashMusic.com.

In somewhat hysterical fashion, Feed Me has donned his music critic hat and shared his thoughts on five random tracks from the Beatport Top 100. Analyzing tracks from Robbie Rivera, Don Diablo, Nervo and more from a songwriting and sound design standpoint, Feed Me offers a brutally honest, yet technically flawless review.
It has that slightly pretentious level of restraint that makes a good deep-house tune somewhat timeless, leaving me with a sudden desire to iron a shirt and hit the town.
With his vast catalogue and stunning debut album in mind, it’s safe to say that Feed Me is an authority on these matters. In the end, however, it’s his charming wit that makes his criticism most enjoyable.

Feed Me’s new album Calamari Tuesday has hit the shelves. If you missed yesterday’s release, check out our official review of Jon Gooch’s debut album. To commemorate Feed Me’s artistic milestone, we’ve got an exclusive Dancing Astronaut interview with Jon in regards to his new album. From jestingly waxing poetic to singling out his favorite songs, Feed Me elucidates Calamari Tuesday from an artistic standpoint.
It’s remarkable to think that Feed Me has yet to release a formal LP up to this point. Having been producing music under the guise of Spor for nearly ten years, Jon Gooch’s catalogue of singles is numerous to say the least. When Feed Me first rose to prominence in 2010, it was after the debut of Feed Me’s Big Adventure, the closest thing to a full-length album in his discography. Three years later, Feed Me presents Calamari Tuesday, 15 tracks of cinematic electro, dubstep, progressive house and more.
As the dance music world gears up for the official release of Feed Me’s debut album Calamari Tuesday, Jon Gooch continues to build the hype by sharing “Lonely Mountain.” Beginning with some melancholic chords, the track proceeds a like metal-infused rock opera, eventually culminating in a powerful halftime section with a “Cliffs of Dover”-esque guitar solo. Gooch said of the track to Rolling Stone, “To me, it’s the track that defines what I’ve been trying to do in one go the most accurately.” “Lonely Mountain” and the rest of Calamari Tuesday will be released on Monday.

Feed Me’s hotly anticipated album, Calamari Tuesday, inches closer as its October 14th release date fast approaches. Rather than keep the album under wraps, the outspoken producer has unveiled another track from the LP, following up “Rat Trap” with the Tasha Baxter collaboration “Ebb & Flow.” Similar to their previous tag team, “Cloudburn,” Gooch and Baxter find the perfect sweet spot between the song siren’s enchanting vocals and Feed Me’s aggressive approach to production. As the name implies, “Ebb & Flow” changes its pace and power as the track progresses, smoothly moving between ethereal sound design and monstrous groans, leaving behind another gripping and impressive output from the talented producer.Posted by
After setting the EDM world spinning by announcing he would take a break from touring to focus on producing, Feed Me is nearly ready to show the fruits of his tour bus-free labor. A 15-track album is the consolation prize for fans missing the live experience, and with an October 14th release date on his own brand new Sotte Voce label, the first single from Calamari Tuesday has officially hit shelves.
Die-hard fans will recognize “Rat Trap” from the producer’s Essential Mix last fall, but with a full minute more than the BBC snippet, the tune proved worth the wait. Ominous, slightly trappy and as technically sound as we’ve come to expect from the toothy green monster, the tune shows that touring or no touring, we all win when his alter ego gets studio time.
