Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (TEED) has had a pretty impressive year both in the studio and live, resulting in him signing to Polydor, recording alongside Damon Albarn in the Congo and receiving critical acclaim from every quarter. TEED continues this rich vain of form with 2 new remixes, Donae’o – When Angels Sing (Out Oct 10th) and Fur Coat – Space Ballad feat. Argenis Brito (Out Now) on Crosstown Rebels.
Much like his own work both remixes represent TEED’s love for both musical content and club focused beats. ‘When Angels Sing’ is the more song based of the two remixes, with TEED expertly cutting up the slightly cheesy vocal and backing it with a punchier underground House sound. ‘Space Ballad’ is much more club focused taking the more funky & warm original and twisting into a colder techno number. Once again TEED demonstrates an innate ability to weave his or someone else’s material into a coherently cohesive track. To often for me remixes can sound like two tracks, with the original and remix elements competing with each other for the listeners attention.
