After a summer of touring and more, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs was locked in on Rinse FM for his September residency that ran every Friday last month. Each show included a diverse pallet of music over the hour-long affair, and only this UK star could put together such a tasteful mix of house, techno, funk, jungle, and 80’s jams, amongst other genres. To make his residency even more special, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs had some surprises like the debut of his unreleased and untitled house track, which happened during his September 11th episode. In addition to Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, the shows featured guests like Artwork, Justin Martin, Dave Okumu from The Invisible, and the Deep Throat Choir to round it all out. If you haven’t already, enjoy all of the shows below, and see Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs play DJ sets at III Points in Miami, CRSSD in San Diego, and Rhonda in SF this month.


Aside from some scattered tour dates and his Boys Noize collab, it’s been a while since we’ve heard from the UK’s Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, but this has all changed very recently. On the first Friday of this month, the live act and producer/DJ launched his Rinse FM residency with Artwork as the guest, and just last week Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs delivered his second show of the run featuring Justin Martin on guest duties. On that most recent show he ran through a very eclectic blend of music, including The Mekanism’s “Acid Love,” Bjarki’s “I Wanna Go Bang,” some drum ‘n’ bass, funky jams, and more. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs also surprisingly debuted a brand new song, but he didn’t mention the name, so all we can do now is enjoy and speculate. Enjoy the show below and watch out for the song debut at the 1:36:00 mark.

The entire Dirtybird crew has had one hell of a year, but no one broke out as far as Justin Jay.  This part-time USC student, part time bass slinging globetrotter claims the youngest spot on the San Francisco-based label’s roster.  Shoulder to shoulder with big guns like Claude VonStrokeJustin Martin, Gorgon City, and more, Justin Jay has proven himself to be a force in bass music.  Today, we all get a taste of his forthcoming 3-track Momentum EP that includes a collaboration with Kill Frenzy.  The first single is a light, upbeat track called “You Give My Butterflies.”  A painfully charming melody suited for the 100 acre woods bounces off of a skillfully crafted bass and synth arrangement.  The track comes as a beautiful retort, following some more dark and gritty releases from Justin Jay.  The Momentum EP is due out on Monday, March 16th via Catz’ ‘N DogzPets Recordings.

“As I’m finishing up an incredible last year of college, and getting to do all of these amazing things in music, it’s felt natural making happy, lighthearted songs that really capture my mood these days. I’ve spent a large part of the last year exploring darker sounds and textures. I definitely want to continue experimenting in that direction, but I wouldn’t want to neglect my goofy, cheerful side either. “You Give Me Butterflies” is a carefree day at the beach, spent with your friends, acting like 8 year-olds.” – Justin Jay

Los Angeles is home to several world-class producers that are on the rise, but there are few that are shaping the sound of tomorrow with as much style and authenticity as Lonely Boy. Heralded as a “Funk conductor, eclectic savant, and master of good vibes,” this Desert Hearts & RollingTuff-affiliated house music maestro has quickly become a local favorite, while also seeing support for his cutting-edge productions from underground luminaries like Lee Burridge. For his guest mix, Lonely Boy brings us his set from a recent performance at Studio 5 After Hours, so it’s a perfect example of what he can do behind the decks in a live setting. Featuring Adana Twins, Justin Martin, Groove Armada, Pete Oak, Tanner Ross, one of Lonely Boy’s own forthcoming jams, “Don’t You Think” (Out on Desert Hearts Records 1/27/15) and more, this mix is a must-listen for those down with the deeper side of house music.
