Orlando Higginbottom is better known as Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs has definetely made a mark as one of the formidable new talents of electronic music. His track “Houshold Goods” was originally released on Greco-Roman back in 2010 (as part of debut album “Trouble”) and has since become an anthem in the TEED live show and a track that defines euphoric house, now we receive a bundle of new remixes from Zinc, Mano Le Tough, Enei, Lil Silva and Zed’s Dead. The remix EP is due out on Beatport August 13th and a week later at all other outlets.

DRC Music is a project by Damon Albarn and 10 other musicians including TEED, Dan The Automator, Jneiro Jarel, Richard Russell, Actress, Marc Antoine, Alwest, Rodaidh McDonald and Kwes together with over 50 Congolese musicians. The project took place during 5 hectic days in the Democratic Republic Of Congo and it resulted in a full-length album that was just released on Warp Records with all proceeds going to Oxfam’s work in Congo and musicians in the country.

This stunning batch of remixes for Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs’ latest single “Garden”, (which actually got the re-rub treatment back on Play It Down almost a year ago now) brings together two big names who put a unique touch on things.

Donaeo drags the track through a metal processing plant on the edge of town, running a buzzsaw in between the vocals and dropping a big UK Funky bassline that jars the original’s placated duet.

Hackman goes the opposite route, and provides a subdued mix of the original track that rolls along on some atmospheric bleeps & twinkling, letting the vocals breathe and take control of the ambience of the track, especially when they’re twisted into a foreign mantra completely different from the original halfway through.

Finally, Joe Goddard is still riding high on the same magic dust that spawned the recent “Gabriel” track on Greco Roman, with a remix that throws on some wobbly synth actions that leave the vocals largely untouched but bend and warp the original melody like a piece of vinyl that’s been locked in a sauna overnight and then played out the next morning. Fortunately, it sounds much better than actually doing that in real life would.
