Jon Gooch, the creative mastermind behind the infamous Feed Me has been on the forefront of all EDM of late releasing spectacular singles, remixes and DJ mixes. Kicking things off back in July, Feed Me graced us with his 23-minute mix on Annie Nightingale’s Radio 1 Show. Shortly after, Feed Me continued to awe us with the release of his latest single “Little Cat Steps” released on mau5trap records. Showing no signs of letting up and moving with a full head of steam, Jon Gooch continued to bring the heat when he dropped his 38-track Essential Mixon Pete Tong’s Radio 1 Show earlier in the month. Now, after the barrage of incredible releases, it’s time to revel in the glory that is Feed Me and now thanks to Future Music Magazine we are given the opportunity to gain even more knowledge about the artist, the concept, and the amazing live experience that is Feed Me and his infamous “Teeth”. The video delves into the logistics of how his notorious stage was constructed and how it is programmed to create an unparalleled live experience.
Best of all, Feed Me recently reported on Facebook that his “Teeth” are receiving upgrades for his upcoming UK Tour, so anyone lucky enough to witness Feed Me live in the coming months should be in for a special treat! Enjoy.

Paper Diamond knows what it means to fill a room with radiating energy; the man has been filling up venues for years with it. The Colorado native kicked off his Night Vision tour at the Ogden on Thursday night, bringing a mix of powerful bass drops with a combination of seductive melodies. Intertwined throughout the captivating tunes were pulsating vocals which just added fuel to the fire for the already animated crowd. With his new LED video set up and array of novel new songs, one thing is for sure, Paper Diamond is ready to show his fans on this tour what is means to Crunkstep.
Opening for Paper Diamond were two artists who know what it means to bring the dirty dub. Max Hype, also known as Protohype, started the night off hard with his creative mix of nasty dub with hip-hop drums which has been given the name Dub Hop. Second up, making his Denver debut all the way from the big Texas, was Crizzly. He said it himself, “I’m nasty.” Oh Crizzly are you ever. His sound is what Crunkstep is all about; mixing dirty Southern beats, a bit of hard rap vocals, and throwing in a few collaborations between artists such as DJ Khaled and Rusko. All three artists brought the dirt, the bass and the filth to keep the crowd screaming for more.
Pretty much anything that Afrojack touches turns to gold, so it came as no surprise that he destroyed this remix. Afrojack takes this tune to the next level starting with a dark intro featuring some creepy sounds while still sampling the original melody. Before you know it you have a bass heavy drop featuring classic Afro chords and an insane high pitch siren synth. He then tweaks Iggy‘s voice in all the right ways during this second transition. Our next remix comes from Larry Tee and Attack Attack Attack, and their take on “Beatdown” goes in a completely different direction. Starting with a standard drum section and the original hard vocals from Iggy, then slowly building into a mind-altering drop featuring a reworked take on the original melody. Cheers.
To Buy both of these insane tunes, CLICK HERE. Both were released via Dim Mak yesterday.

Canadian indie pop duo Tegan And Sara have blessed us with an oh-so-sweet track called “Closer,” off their forthcoming 2013 album. The sisters (identical, actually!) have been putting out music for over a decade and have 5+ albums under their belts, but haven’t released anything since 2009′s Sainthood so we will probably gobble up “Closer” like hungry beasts. With bouncy synths and delectable harmonies, it’s hard to resist.
Last week, Bird Peterson, the producer from Austin, Texas released his fourth, and possibly final chapter in the “Drankenstein” mix series through Mad Decent. For over a year, Bird has been using the Drankenstein handle to remix popular electro tracks, turning them into instant Trap bangers. While his remixes are great, his Drankenstein Mixes have always been something very special. Filled with (mostly) Trance classics, with a healthy amount of heavy dub bass, Bird traps these tracks out, not simply by increasing the 808s and snares and throwing in the odd gunshot or “Damn son” sample, but instead by expertly layering lyrics by some of the best dirty south Trap rappers like Three 6 Mafia, T.I., Future and Crime Mob over every song. Now, Bird has given us the entire mix separated into the individual songs, resulting in 15 incredible mashed-up tracks that would fit well into any Trance or Hip-Hop set, or act as your soundtrack when you are hitting the streets. Below are a few favorites, but be sure to cop the whole thing here!
Well Ninjas, another week has passed and as tantalizing thoughts of the upcoming weekend begin to seep into your train of thought it is time again to embrace your weekly dosage of trance. As we stated last week, trance is a genre, which has served as the foundation for some of the largest and most successful names in the EDM. Noted for its 8-bar patterns and hypnotic melodies, trance music speaks to its listeners on a profound emotional level. So without any further ado, lets take some time on this fine Thursday to enter a state of trance.
This week our playlist begins featuring the newest massive tune “Must Be The Love” from BT, Arty and Nadia Ali. This track is a spectacular representation of trance at its finest; intense build-ups and meticulous breakdowns from two trance legends intertwined with premier vocalist Nadia Ali’s sensual verses. Next, we have Gai Abutbul’s remix of Ruben De Ronde’s track “Fjords”. Gai’s remix exemplifies the light and dreamy sensation of expertly crafted trance melodies overlayed atop rythmic up-tempo drums. Miss Nine’s latest effort “Stranger” featuring Kyler England is a great selection illustrating the progressive aptitude of trance as a genre. Other notable tracks are Tritonal’s mashup of their tune “Broken Down” with Ost & Meyers “Antalya” as well as New Hero’s remix of W&W’s “Moscow” which are both available for free download. Enjoy.
