Feed Me Trounces Terminal 5 with Epic New Stage Reveal!
Last weekend the massively successful U.K. producer Jon Gooch, a.k.a. Feed Me, brought his highly anticipated, new live performance to the always intriguing halls of Manhattan’s maze-like music hall, Terminal 5. On Saturday, August 2nd, Feed Me kicked off his Psychedelic Journey Tour, which will be running through September and delighting fans around the States and Canada. Feed Me is back with an impressive cast of talented supporting artists and an even more impressive “Teeth” stage that will dazzle venues from Nashville to Calgary.
The Sotto Vocce label head was joined by a colorful cast of characters last Saturday, which included two of the best hairdos in the New York scene. The always mystifying and revolutionary Space Jesus took the stage first and opened the frivolity with his trademark psychedelic style. The Brooklyn-based DJ brought Terminal 5 to life with an insatiable brand of dubstep, recalling the genre’s deep and murky origins. Space Jesus’ effortless swagger dripped from every perfectly positioned synth and flawless transition in his set, culminating in a phenomenal opening performance to whet everyone’s appetite for the ferocity that was still to come.
Next up was another rising New York City star and member of the Sotto Vocce family, Tjani. In what was surely one of his biggest performances to date, Tjani came out guns blazing and dreads swinging. The wild man DJ filled Terminal 5 with his infectious energy and rocked the crowd with a relentless pace that had the dance floor bouncing like a springboard. Keen to impress the packed house Tjani opened with a slick mix of revamped R&B bangers that included Lloyd’s “Get It Shawty” and Cornoa’s “Rhythm Of The Night.” After bouncing through genres and kicking out heaters like Nero’s new sultry track “Satisfy” and Trippy Turtle’s glossy hit
“Trippy’s Theme,” Tjani unleashed a few original tracks, forthcoming on Sotto Vocce. The crowd gleamed as Tjani’s new tunes popped with vibrancy and a unique flair.
As the lights dimmed in Terminal 5, the mood was electric as the night’s headliner was ready to hit the stage. The thick red curtain hiding the massively reconstructed “Teeth” stage fell, and a roar of applause filled the air as the LED screens flashed alive and the mischievous image of Feed Me took form. Equipped with new extensions and a brand new mobile chassis, the new “Teeth” stage was a wonder to behold. Splicing his set with a touch of old and new tracks, Feed Me displayed how his sound has evolved over the years, dropping classic tunes like “The Spell,” “Strange Behavior,” and the raucous banger “One Click Headshot.” Feed Me pushed the fast forward button with new, intriguing tracks like “Alarm Clock,” “Time For Myself,” and “Patience,” all off of his new EP Psychedelic Journey. The highlight of the night for me was Feed Me dropping huge tracks off of his highly acclaimed album Calamari Tuesdays, which included the playful tracks “Orion” and “No Grip,” the bassy, trapped out tune “Rat Trap” and the ever-uplifting “Love Is All I Got.”
