Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – “Tapes & Money” (John Talabot Remix)

In this remix of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs “Tapes & Money,” snippets of vocals are repeated almost to the point of ad nauseum. Many remixes of this song are available, including those by MJ Cole, Eats Everything, and Casino Times, but John Talabot is one with a singularly impressive ability to make such repetition not even the least bit boring. His “Ritual Deconstruction” mix seems to live up to its own name as it slowly and methodically chisels into one’s brain with every click, tap, and refrain. The remix bundle came out on April 10th.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs will release his long-awaited debut album, Trouble, June 12th in the US via Casablanca Records. As far as I’m concerned, the original can be skipped in light of this vastly superior remix. But if you’d like to decide for yourself, you can stream it at YouTube.

 

The Hundred In The Hands – “Faded”

“Faded”, below, was the first track released from The Hundred In The Hands’ upcoming album, RED NIGHT. The record, which will be released via Warp Records on June 12th, is supposedly a “meditation on separation and reunion, love nearly lost and the night back to it.” Indeed, there is in these tracks a sense of melancholy beneath movement and seduction nested in the arms of rhythm.

Stream “Faded” below and get an mp3 download of their newest track, “”Keep It Low.” Details and tracklisting for the “Keep It Low” remix album and RED NIGHT are below, along with a record preview video.

The Hundred In The Hands describe the thought behind the Keep It Low 12″, saying: “We were listening to Andy Stott’s ,em>Passed Me By and We Stay Together EPs a lot as we started the record. So many good ideas and textures, with low end in the extreme that kind of rattled our minds a bit. When it came to looking for people to remix, he was first on the list. The legendary Optimo duo have been such an influence on so many artists in recent years, and in maybe too many cases we end up liking their versions a bit more than the originals. We just had to ask. JD Twitch turned in two versions, each unique and equally epic. We couldn’t make up our minds so, we stuck them both on. We’d been hearing bits from Patten and got excited. It’s hallucinatory, uneasy and fractured. Pretty much everything we like. ‘Mountains’ was a track that was written totally in the flow of the album but still just could’t fit in, it just wouldn’t play nice with the other tracks and just became its own beast of a thing. This seemed like the best place to let it out.”
