Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs has exploded back onto the dance music scene with “Body Move,” yet another new song the English producer has unveiled this year.
Coming hot on the heels of “Don’t You Forget About Me” and “Leave a Light on,” this six-minute banger is designed for the dancefloor, evidence that TEED hasn’t forgotten his roots. “Move your body closer / Don’t look any further,” he exhorts on the disembodied vocal hook.
Orlando Higginbottom got everyone’s attention back in 2012 with his debut Trouble, as well as his flamboyant, fun-loving live performances with costumes and dancers. He spent a few years touring the world, playing the likes of Glastonbury, Lollapalooza and Sonar, and then a few more years DJing. All the while, he was writing and recording music that he’s only now releasing to the world.
The reason for the delay? Fatigue.
“All my time has been spent making music and thinking about making music,” he said in a press release. “But I couldn’t see a way for it to be fun. Both personally, and with regards to the state of the industry itself.”
Higginbottom found his mojo again after settling into a new home in Los Angeles. And since putting out the first comeback track, “Leave a Light on,” in June, he’s been raring to go.
“With ‘Leave a Light on,’ I had to start releasing music or I would have broken. Now I feel like there are no rules, and I’m strong enough to do things my way and fail gloriously.”
