''Squarepusher’s music is a tangle of beats, bass, and melody, a combustible mixture of musical ideas that dynamites the repetitive nature of much electronic music. But the short-lived mid-’90s trend for drill’n’bass, spearheaded by Aphex and Luke Vibert, meant that Squarepusher’s beat mangling and hall-of-mirrors funk didn’t feel quite as solitary in 1996 as it often does today. Echoes of Richard D. James’ dual Hangable Auto Bulb EPs, released in 1995, can be heard in Feed Me Weird Things’ fractured grooves, and album highlight “Theme From Ernest Borgnine” is straight out of the Aphex playbook, marked by a colorful melody and tortured breakbeats.
Drum’n’bass—particularly the jazz-influenced strain that was approaching its peak in 1996—was another kindred spirit. If you squint, you could imagine Feed Me Weird Things’ “Squarepusher Theme” or “Kodack” slotting onto Roni Size / Reprazent’s debut EP, Reasons for Sharing, or 4 Hero’s 1997 EP Earth Pioneers: Squarepusher’s shared loved of live bass and moody chords reflects the jazz-funk heritage that underpinned a lot of British dance music in the ’90s.
Squarepusher’s drums, too, have a certain groove on Feed Me Weird Things that sometimes gets submerged in the wild beat contortions of his later work. The intricate rhythmic cut-ups and shock FX attack that would become Squarepusher’s trademarks are certainly present on Feed Me Weird Things but remain at recognizably humane levels, making a song like “Smedleys Melody”—essentially Django goes jungle—almost a straightforward listen'' (Pitchfork)
