Jon Gooch may be most well known for his work as Feed Me but that is only a narrow view of his prolific influence in the electronic music scene. The London based producer started releasing music under the alias Spor and subsequently moved into the management side of the industry as well. As one of the founders of Lifted Music, Gooch began influencing the drum and bass and dubstep scene in the U.K. and the U.S. with more than just his artistic talents.
Gooch’s first solo release as Feed Me is proof of the knowledge and practice he gained from spending years in the scene. The Spell/Raw Chicken EP release on Deadmau5’s Mau5trap label in 2008 debuted the hard electro house and dubstep sound that would propel Feed Me to international fame. It would be two years before another release but the 2010 eight track Feed Me’s Big Adventure was worth the wait. Featuring collaborations with Tasha Baxter and Kill The Noise, the quality and popularity of this EP cemented Gooch’s reputation as a creative force in the scene. It also featured the first Beatport appearance of the Feed Me monster, one of the most signature aspects of the brand.
