Back in September, we had the pleasure to cover a new collab titled, “Heartbreak,” from a pair of master sound technicians, Bonobo & Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (aka TEED). The track was an ode to electronic music’s formative years in the 70s and 80s, sampling Christine Wiltshire’s iconic vocal line “I can’t take the heartbreak” from the 1983 classic anthem “Weekend” by Class Action. Today, the UK duo is dropping the B-side release, a vivacious soundscape driven bop titled “6,000 Ft.”
This B-side release elegantly compliments the recoiling, energizing synth and drum work of “Heartbreak.” Pattering hi-hats and shimmering synths build an aura of serenity, before bouncing automated Moog synths take over as the perfect counter to the ethereal accents of first heard on the A-side. Your soul will feel refreshed, energized, an maybe even mildly transcended after listening to these two vinyl ready tracks
This EP comes as the first collection released on Bonobo’s new label, OUTLIER. The direction of the label is driven more towards the club dance floor according to the veteran producer. If this EP is any indication of what’s to come from the label, expect us to keep a very close eye on them. Stream Bonobo and TEED’s sublime new EP ‘Heartbreak/6000 ft.’ below. Enjoy!
