Battle of the Beats is a new feature from Dancing Astronaut that pits two tracks that share the same title against one another to determine which production represents the name better. With the dance music community continually growing, producers, mashup artists and DJs alike constantly create new music, often of the same name. Now we are opening it up to our readers to weigh in on who’s rendition takes the proverbial cake. (more…)Posted by
The multi-faceted Orlando Higginbottom, better known as Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (T.E.E.D), doesn’t fall into expectations easily. His originals and remixes span a multitude of genres, from indie dance to drum and bass; his Essential Mix from last year further exhibits his dexterity. Today he uploaded his own fresh take on Foals’ indie track, “My Number.” Lifting a few lines off the normally funky chorus, T.E.E.D layers the newly ethereal vocals over his echoey deep house production. Stream the remix below and watch for the release soon.Posted by
It’s been a year since Eats Everything made an Essential Mix appearance, and this time around, the new #13 on Resident Advisor‘s Top 100 DJs of 2012 poll had a special treat for us. This two hour segment featured an unreasonably large number of incredible edits, bootlegs, and reworks by the big man himself. No surprises in his inclusion of pals like Justin Martin, T.E.E.D., and Catz n Dogz but we were tickled by inclusions of Green Velvet, Jacques Da Booty, Kölsch, Paul Simon, and the standout “rewix” of Chicken Lips’ “He Not In.” Enjoy the stream and check out the tracklist below.
The illusive production team Waze & Odyssey have released their latest effort, Love Attack EP, today on Disco Bloodbath Recordings. Not only has the duo garnered a significant amount of attention on Pete Tong’s recent Essential Selection radio shows, but we’ve also seen them remix some of today’s newest and hottest talents, like Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Disclosure.
Waze & Odyssey last released a remix for Damon Martin’s “That Ain’t Right” on Disco Bloodbath and have since been pumping out tracks on their own new label, Waze & Odyssey Street Tracks. Love Attack EP features two brilliant W&O originals, “Love Attack” and “She’s a Hooker” in addition to a distinctive Mark E remix of the title track. Stream the full EP after the break.
Orlando Higginbottom is the eccentrically dressed, 26-year-old producer behind the equally eccentrically named, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, or T-E-E-D for short. Despite his music background (his father was the head of the choir at Oxford – where he also studied,) Orlando has only been producing under the T-E-E-D moniker for 2 years. His debut album, Trouble was released back in June, and now, less than 3 months later, he premieres his first essential mix on the prestigious BBC Radio 1. Clocking in at just under 2 hours, T-E-E-D’s first essential mix is the perfect easy-listening to start your week off right. Bursting at the seams with soul and pure house grooves, the mix effortlessly ebbs and flows through a multitude of tracks that most casual dance music fans won’t recognize. There isn’t a Beatport Top 10 track in the lot, but for what it lacks in mainstream anthems it more than makes up for in funk and style. Featuring blazing tracks from Eats Everything, Justin Jay, and Koreless, Orlando proves his prowess behind the decks, taking listeners on a journey through techno, disco, deep house and electro — all without skipping a beat. For those of you actively searching for new tunes, new vibes and new talent, this mix is a must listen.
