Feed Me’s brand new electro EP released through Deadmau5’s mau5trap recordings this month is an easy listening and hardy delight to the EDM genre. Entitled Death by Robots, this album features three tracks of heavy, gritty bass and his signature Feed Me blips, showcasing his ability to seamlessly weave multiple genres and styles so fluidly into one another. Opening with the self-titled track “Death by Robots”, the track opens with a dark piano tune before tearing straight into meaty beats. For the fans of genre meshing, the altered robotic vocals offer a strangely unique and catchy hook, gracefully tying together the mechano apocalyptic theme in a fusion of bass and breakdowns. An easy pick for my personal favorite.
Gravel is next, which is definitely for the fans of Feed Me’s dubstep/heavy house style. The unorthodox mixture of classical-esque music and EDM is gorgeous, featuring gentle arpeggios dance about between the booming drops of grinding, static bass and hearty house beats. This track is definitely a dependable choice for the bass heads out there.
‘Dialup Days’ is a wild track; it honestly caught me almost completely off guard with its unpredictable and wonky sound. Filling me with nostalgia from the modem dial-up sounds scattered throughout the track, the overall minimalist feel of the track is a welcome switch up for the album. Buzzing, fluctuating bass fills the bulk of the heavier portions, snapping back to mild breakdowns and computer blip bonanzas.
Pound for pound, Feed Me’s Death by Robot EP divides and conquers via multi genre blends and attention demanding composition. Definitely WompWorthy!
