Review Meltdown, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs & Low Island, Southbank Centre by James Ellis

 out of 5 stars (3 / 5)

My last night in London wrapped up with a a fairly noteworthy event at the Southbank. Warm up act Low Island were fairly rocky, English sounding. I found them attentive if not really attention grabbing. Loud, proud rock which was not really my thing. Amazing how dim the Queen Elizabeth Hall foyer was even with the sun beaming through.

The wonderfull named Orlando Tobias Edward Higginbottom is better known by his DJ moniker Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. There are some great, thumping tunes here. I knew him best for Trouble, which recall getting as a YouTube advert back in the day. He tracks sure know how to get a place dancing, we were lost in his groovy, funk house beats. Nice to near Orlando sing live as well, a huge plus in my books. He’s cleverly chosen to not wear a first nation’s head gear anymore as well. Other songs were recognisable, easily heard on the dance floor and it remained a great set.

Meltdown will return in 2024.
