This weekend, electro house sensation Feed Me makes his debut on Beats 1’s weekly radio show One Mix. The English producer describes the set as ”a stream of consciousness with sparks of nostalgia.” Expect tracks from Umek, The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers, plus plenty of songs from Feed Me’s recent album, High Street Creeps.

Tune in here, exclusively on Apple Music.
Air Date: Friday 5th April 2019 - 21:00 LA / 00:00 NY / 05:00 UK

Feed Me (real name Jon Gooch) grew up in Hertfordshire, obsessed with computers and his parents’ rock vinyls. He got his start making drum and bass under his Spor alias, and it wasn’t until 2008 that Gooch’s devious green gremlin came to life and the Feed Me persona was born.

Gooch’s self-drawn cartoon - with its stout, bulbous body, devious wide-eyed smile and sharp eyes - embodies his music, fierce and unwavering at one end, and playful, almost whimsical at the other. Take a listen to his third album, High Street Creeps, released less than two months ago, to hear for yourself.

Ahead of his One Mix, Gooch shared music insights, like his guilty pleasure record and dream B2B partner, with us. Not only that, but he had some blunt words to share about the current state of dance music. First show experience?
