Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs "How Far (2 Bears Remix)"

"How Far" is probably the least cutesy number in Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs' (pictured above) often precious-sounding repertoire of club tunes, and still, 2 Bears is able to make it even more serious while maintaining the duo's penchant for dancefloor playfulness. Producers Raf Rundell and Joe Goddard (of Hot Chip) introduce us to their remix with a half-time beat and warbling electronics in the background, telling us with an ominous voice that they're taking us "way back, back into time where the totally enormous extinct dinosaurs ruled the earth." Apparently, back in the Jurassic Period, basslines were gigantic, synth tones were smooth and deep, and breakbeats walked the land, as that's precisely what 2 Bears' time-traveling track offers in spades during its six minutes. Kudos for the "Tyranosaurus Rex" drop, too.
