Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (or shortly TEED) is the alias of Orlando Higginbottom, the son of an Oxford University music professor, currently living in Oxford, UK.
He started his career by remixing music of Sugababes, The Joy Formidable, Foreign Beggars, Faithless, Deathary Trebuchay, using different dinosaur moniker such as Microceraptor, Hererodontosaurus or Diceraptor for different remixes. For example remix of Faithless “Kind Of Peace” was named “Pteradactyl’s Tropic Love Remix”.
His first Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs EP “All In One Sixty Dancehalls” was released on the Greco-Roman record label run by Joe Goddard from band Hot Chip on June 15th, 2009. It contained tracks “Moon Hits The Mirrorball“, “Bournemouth“, “Sickly Child” plus remix of “Moon Hits The Mirrorball” by 2BadMice.
His second EP “All in Two Sixty Dancehalls” was more successful, especially because it contained “Garden“, a surprisingly delicate boy-girl duet with Luisa Lampshade from Lulu & The Lampshades. Another tracks on EP was breakbeat-powered, dancehall-flavored “Blood Pressure” featuring Riko, a gorgeous house tune “That One” and minimalistic “Dipper“.
He also started to use name Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs for his official remixes, which include tracks from Crystal Fighters, Fenech-Soler, Lee Mortimer, Professor Green, Sky Ferreira and Killa Kela.
His latest EP “Household Good” was released on November 8, 2010, and contained tracks “Household Goods“, “Waulking Song” and “How Far“. Recently TEED also created MiniMix for Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show, she was one of the first who started to play his songs on radio.
