This week I bring you two very different artists, one which you may have heard of and the other you probably haven’t. Regardless you should know about both of these guys as they are both putting out high quality music and you should be listening to it. What makes these guys connected in a loose way is that they both work with a variety of music and you can’t really contain their productions within one genre. It’s always refreshing to see producers pushing the boundaries and making you change your point of view on music. I have a lot of respect for these two and I hope you do as well after reading a little bit about them.
Chris Malinchak is a young gun that hails from New York City and plays around with the sounds of house but has found a way to put his own spin on everything he does. I’ve been following him for a little less than a year now and have heard his productions grow in breadth and depth. I first got a taste of his sound when I found his track “There I Was” floating around the internet and immediately fell in love with this slow burner of a track; it starts off slow and groovy with light vocals crooning “…So there I was..” and then all of sudden this low end bass comes in and slaps you on the ass; I was sold from the start. From then on he has released track after track with each one being as hot as the last and his house sound coming to include influences from a variety of dance music genres. So, without further ado I introduce Chris Malinchak and his infectious tunes for you to enjoy.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, or Orlando Higginbottom, is well known for his wild array of music in his sets as well as his signature wild headdresses. This young producer from Oxford has made a name for himself quite quickly; just this year he did his first Essential Mix which was phenomenal and displayed a wide range of music not just for the club and released his first full length album titledTrouble.His sound is really hard to describe as he has so masterfully combined many elements into them. Many of his tracks include lots of weird synths and low weird basslines along with his vocals which weave themselves quite beautifully among his blissed out robotic tracks. Try to understand that; you really can’t hence why you have to give him a listen because until you do you can’t really understand what his sound is like.
