Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs aka Orlando Higginbottom, currently signed by the classic record label "Polydor" is a British DJ, producer and vocalist. He is often referred to as the guy with the odd costumes, however there is a lot more to him than just the costumes.

His debut album “Trouble” was released on June 11th 2012. The album contained amazing tracks such as Trouble, Household Goods, Stronger, Tapes & Money and one of my all time favorite, Garden.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (TEED) has a unique sound that is extremely hard to define in just words. A huge variety of House, Electro, dub-step and dance elements are put together in a most original way, creating a mixture of heavy bass lines and catchy melodies. TEED is for sure one of the most interesting artist of the entire electronic music scene.

Further, he is one of the best, if not the best, live performer I have ever witnessed. He bounces frantically between laptops, keyboards, drum machines and samplers while providing live vocals, often together with the female vocalist Luisa Gerstein. This creates a massive euphoria amongst the audience, while TEED radiates a huge amount of energy. The extreme variety of musical impressions combined with the visual impact of pyrotechnics, lasers and LED-screens together with TEEDs awesome dinosaur and Native American influenced costumes, results in a show refined into total perfection.

As you might understand from this blog entry, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaur have had an enormous impact on me during the last two years, and I hope that his songs will have the same effect on you guys!
