Bonobo & Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs ‘Heartbreak’ 12"
‘Heartbreak’ sees Simon Green, AKA Bonobo, team up with fellow producer Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs to deliver a dancefloor-driven 12” that builds on some of the foundations of electronic music, tracing a line from 1980’s NYC through to the warehouse parties of today.
‘Heartbreak’ is a breakbeat-driven ode to one of electronic music’s formative scenes: NYC’s disco revolution of the 1970s and 80s, sampling Christine Wiltshire’s iconic vocal line “I can’t take the heartbreak” from the 1983 disco anthem ‘Weekend’ by Class Action.
The tune arrives with the launch of Bonobo’s record label, OUTLIER, expanding upon his series of club shows and festival stage takeovers around the world. The imprint will serve as a platform for rave-inspired sounds drawn from Bonobo’s club sets.
