Out as of February 22nd, 2019 on the deadmau5 label mau5trap, “HIGH STREET CREEPS” – a namesake taken from the notorious 1980s Hertfordshire pheasant poaching ring–marks FEED ME’s new studio album and ninth overall release on mau5trap. The album made its debut at #1 on iTunes Electronic Album chart.
Following 2013’s “Calamari Tuesday” with a string of FEED ME singles and EP’s, as well as a debut album for his alias Spor in 2015, “HIGH STREET CREEPS” marks the producer’s sophomore full length project. This album features 10 tracks that span a variety of production styles, some of which differ from what he’s delivered in the past.
The first single Feel Love features the angelic voice of Rosie Doonan (who’s performed with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Birdy), helmed by a synth lead with chopped vocals over a pulsating house kick, while its second single Sleepless evolves as an electro banger that uses FEED ME’s hard-hitting, uniquely distinguishable sound. There are also vocal-fronted tracks with Milo Greene‘s Graham Fink, emerging British indie singer/songwriter Cheney (Theo Alteri) and Lindsay.

“With the second album it was written all across the world, across a big expanse of time,” says FEED ME. “Getting the mindset to distil it into something congruous meant a lot. He adds: “I flew to LA with my whole setup for a while and drove around setting up and working with different vocalists and artists which was the antithesis of how I had always worked, some of it was written there, some in my studio, and some away from the box as it were, I’ve started to love making music or sketching ideas away from a screen and I wanted that reflected in there too. It spans multiple years and a big change, even building my own studio, and a big learning experience.”
Meanwhile, to support the release of “HIGH STREET CREEPS”, look for FEED ME to appear at Beyond Wonderland in Southern California on March 22nd, 2019. He’ll then return to the States in early summer for his first ‘Teeth’ headline tour since 2013. “We’re touring the ‘Teeth’ setup again this summer,” states FEED ME. “I think it’s probably my proudest achievement. Building my show was the ultimate way to present what I do and a creative dream, and probably also my new album. It represents me getting my lifestyle under control and combining a big array of memories and chaos into something fully structured, I feel like I can move forward with more speed now.” Look for dates and on-sale information to be revealed in the coming weeks.
