Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Trouble

Somehow, despite props from Cheryl Cole, and selling a whole bunch of Nokias, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs is still an underground artist. People still talk of him as a knowingly swopped open secret between the initiated. So it’s comforting to hear, then, upon started up Trouble, that even with a potential career-cannoning debut album, the boy has stuck to his guns. I’ll eat my hat if Higginbottom isn’t working with Rihanna in a year or two. Words by Biu Rainey.

BeardyMan @ Oxford o2 Academy – 07/03/11

There is no denying Beardyman’s talent as the UK’s best beatboxer and, as was expected, jaws were hitting the ground throught the venue as soon as he commenced. The show as a whole was a good mixture of Drum and Bass, Hip-Hop, House and Techno all created on the spot using only his vocals, a loop machine and keyboard with numerous effects. I highly reccomend BeardyMan whether you are an electronic music fan or not. Words by Oli Ford.
