Durante | Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs Remix

LA-based DJ/producer Durante shares the first remix from his debut album ‘Enter’, courtesy of electronic artist Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Originally from Oxford, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs made waves with his debut album ‘Trouble’ in 2012, followed by a series of releases such as the recent collaboration ‘Heartbreak’ with Bonobo and ‘Unfold’ alongside Porter Robinson. 


Throughout his career, he has earned press from NME, Mixmag, and DJ Mag and has received two GRAMMY nominations. In his remix of ‘Ancora,’ he blends the original melodic hook with a bassline and percussion-laden grooves, crafting an uptempo and possibly club-ready adaptation.


Hailing from a small Italian village outside of Florence, Durante (aka Kevin Durante) began his musical journey in 2006. Drawn to the sweet spots where house and techno genres intersect, his sound has seen him release with Anjunadeep, Armada, W&O Street Records, Shall Not Fade, and Amtrac’s imprint Openers. Artists including Bonobo, RÜFÜS DU SOL, and Joris Voorn have apparently praised his work, and he has collaborated with the likes of Diplo & Aluna on ‘Forget About Me’, Amtrac on ‘Gather’ and 9th House on ‘Ruling Planet,’ as well as remixing Cassian, Booka Shade, TWO LANES and more.


Last month, 18 years after starting his musical journey, he shared his debut album, ‘Enter,’ on Anjunadeep. Inspired by the concept of portals and multiple dimensions, it showcases his eclectic sound that has developed from his diverse pool of musical influences, featuring Duke Ellington, classic Italo-disco, and early Cocoon records.


Durante: “I’ve spent the past three years working on this album; it marks the beginning of many great endeavours in my life. It’s a coming-of-age story, but it’s also a reflection of the world around us. I’m happy to be able to share my emotions through music because the words escape me. Hopefully, you can find solace in the sound. Open your eyes, enter the portal to the sixth dimension.”


Across 13 tracks, he explores themes of self-discovery, acceptance, and love. The album features collaborations with Montréal-based producer and live act CRi, American vocalist Nathan Nicholson, Australian singer-songwriter Running Touch, Californian songstress and producer HANA, and London-based vocalist SOHN.


‘Ancora (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs Remix)’ is out now on Anjunadeep.
