Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – 4Play Interview & Short Film for Channel 4 (Video)

Orlando Higginbottom (probably the most British name since Nigel Tufnel or Armitage Shanks) is a dance music producer from Oxford, UK, who also calls himself Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.


“Well I say that I make dance music, but most people in dance music say that they make house, or techno, or tech-house, or trance, or drum ‘n’ bass, or liquid drum ‘n’ bass, and if we just woke up tomorrow morning and there were none of these genres and you just had your record collection in front of you, and you didn’t know what any of it was called or where any of it came from, it wouldn’t matter, that would be great.

That would be great, and you’d probably write some amazing music and you’d love some music you’d never loved before, because all the connotations and the weird ideas you have about whether it’s cool and where it’s come from and what scene it is and who wrote it and whether you’ve heard it before, those would just be gone.

I like that idea.”
