From the early recognition for his debut releases on the Greco-Roman label (run by Joe Goddard), Orlando (aka TEED) has been on a one man mission to share his unique take on dance music ' and it's been going rather well of late.
From joining forces with Friendly Fires on-stage at Bestival last summer to being invited out to the Congo by Damon Albarn to record an album for Warp, Orlando has been gradually making his way to the top, all the while following his own path.
Finding time to squeeze in a remix for Lady Gaga's 'Marry The Night' single, re-release the irrepressible 'Garden' single (2.5million YouTube views and counting) and support Deadmau5 playing an exclusive set from the top of the Millbank Tower across the Thames, the majority of the past 6 months has been spent in the studio working on his much-anticipated debut LP.
New single 'Tapes & Money' set to raise anticipation even further.
Orlando comments: "The track started life as an instrumental in my live sets, and with a little inspiration from the phone hacking saga, I've ended up recording a vocal. It feels good to get some new music out there."
The kaleidoscopically colourful video, directed by David Terranova (who created the stunning 4Play film for Channel 4 last year), was filmed at TEED's headline show at London's Heaven on February 16th.
Following the sell-out headline UK tour - Orlando's first - Summer dates are now starting to stack up. Highlights include Sonar Sao Paolo, a headline set at Camp Bestival, peak-time shows at Rockness and Bestival, a 6-stop tour of Germany and a headline show at London's KOKO on May 23rd.
