Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs' Orlando Higginbottom has claimed that "very few" dance music albums have "stood the test of time".

Speaking to Fact, the electro producer said that he had tried to make sure that his debut LP 'Trouble', which is released on June 11, would buck the genre's trend and have some staying power.

"The main challenge I set myself was to make a dance album with some shelf-life," he said of the LP, before adding:

It seems that there have been very few albums in dance music history that have stood the test of any time at all. It's always been about individual tracks.


He continued by detailing some of the inspirations behind his plan for the album and named Roni Size/Reprazent's 1997 debut LP 'New Forms' as a dance record that had "really worked" and still "sounds great", adding: "I appreciate that my album is not going to challenge 'New Forms', nor did I want it to sound similar, but it was something I was thinking about a lot when I was making 'Trouble'. Plus 12-year-old me loved it."

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs will play a large number of this summer's festivals, including Parklife Weekender, Bestival, RockNess and Benicassim.
