“Whats that coming over the hill……….its the Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (Pete Tong, 2012)” For those who have been reading Blah Blah Blah for sometime will know that we have been ardent fans of this spiky Oxford born dino kid for sometime. His combination of the theatrical, poignant vocals and thunderous riffs have been soundtracking our sets for the best part of 2 years. Since his initial releases on Joe Goddards underground Greco-Roman label he has been snapped up by Polydor, released his critically acclaimed Trouble album, embarked on an extensive European tour and now the cou’de gra, recording an Essential Mix.


In recent times TEED has purely focused on his electrifying live performances, however for those who have had the privilege of catching Orlando Higginbottom in the mix will know that he is no slouch behind the 1’s & 2’s, as this journey through house, techno, bass, disco and electronica attests to. Quality stuff. Thanks to Pete Tong and Radio 1.
