Win Tickets: Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, The New Law, Justin Timbreline at Barboza 8/5!Posted by Bebe Besch
You know everything you hate about the seriousness of dance, electronic, and even dubstep music? Throw those things away and you’re left with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (abbreviated as TEED), the dance project of Oxford’s Orlando Higginbottom. With entertainment and enjoyment in mind, Higginbottom has successfully crafted his debut LP, Trouble, released on June 12, which celebrates the lighter side of electronic music by incorporating vibrant dance melodies with the layering of his own vocals.
What’s more, Higginbottom knows you’re paying for proper entertainment at one of his shows. In the live setting, a Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs show is known for elaborate light set-ups, glitter canons, dancing dinosaurs, and Higginbottom’s always extravagant dinosaur costumes or head pieces. Recently Higginbottom even held a fan contest where submissions were taken for the next TEED headpiece. A fan’s involvement and fun experience has always been the main concern for a TEED show – ensuring everyone enjoys themselves. It’s unknown when the new headpiece will make its live debut, but it’s certain TEED will provide more than your average dance party this Sunday night at Barboza’s stage.
‘Extinct’ might by in Higginbottom’s stage title, but the night will be contradictorily alive with his songs, especially as he will be preceded by the work of local producers The New Law, who create organic and instrumental synth hip-hop, as well as Justin Timbreline who will take the stage first for the night.
