Trap Done Right: Feed Me | Rat Trap

Ah, trap music: EDM’s excuse for a mildly monotonous, rap-infused sub genre containing unvaried riffs and excessive, immoderate bass drops. Predictability and trap go hand in hand – unless Jon Gooch is behind the decks. Feed Me takes the few, negligible qualities of a soon to be out-dated style of music and infuses them into his own imaginative form.

The result?

“Rat Trap”.

Ever since we first heard Feed Me’s new single on his Essential Mix, we knew Jon had something tricky up his sleeve for his next album. If this is any indication of what to expect with Calamari Tuesday, it’s safe to say the other 14 tracks provide considerable anticipation.

The official release date is set for October 15th, so keep those ears and eyes open for a little green monster creeping up your leg.

Skrillex – BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix [FREE]

The creator of OWSLA  is back with a brand new BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. Skrillex has taken North America by storm and now he attempts to win over our brethren from across the pond with brand new material from his collaboration with German electro sensation Alexander Ridha aka Boys Noize. If hip-hop influenced, acid disco-house isn’t your thing, do not fret. Sonny has included plenty of jams guaranteed to get your motor running on this hangover of a Monday.

It would appear as if this former Emo artist is changing his style once again, but what did you expect? After conquering the dubstep scene and bringing it to the forefront of mainstream music in the U.S., Skrillex diverges into yet another electronic scene. It is quite clear that he has the production skills to take on almost any genre.

So, how does it sound?

Well, that’s up to you to decide. We think it’s just more great music from Sonny Moore.

Give it and listen and tell us what you think.
