Marking the first official release on freshly minted imprint Outlier Records, Bonobo and TEED’s “Heartbreak” was built to decimate dance floors.


Bonobo is an artist that needs little introduction. Over the past two decades, he has built a ravenous fan base that provides an insatiable appetite for his music that spans globally-influenced downtempo works to one of a kind club bangers. This time around, he has recruited fellow producer Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs for their latest dancefloor weapon, “Heartbreak.” 

Along with their latest single, Bonobo and TEED (as he’s become affectionately known to fans) have ushered in a new era for Bonobo, introducing his very own label Outlier Records. The new imprint sets its sights on the more club-centric side of Bonobo music. Outlier Records strives to provide an outlet for the club-bangers, the dance floor heaters, and the overall high energy side of Bonobo productions along with his esteemed colleagues. 

“Heartbreak” comes from a multitude of musical influences. One part breakbeat banger, one part garage, and enough 80s club influence to get even the most jaded fans up on their feet. A track that harkens back to the early days of dance music, the nights of sweltering New York City clubs that wouldn’t let out until well into the next day. “Heartbreak” comes as an ode to days gone by, not necessarily in memoriam, yet more of a salute to the scene that built the club-culture we know today. 

Now more than ever it feels important to be putting out dance music with deliberate acknowledgment of its history. It’s great to be releasing music with Simon, not to mention the first release on his label.

Holding on to its disco roots, “Heartbreak” calls upon an iconic sample from the 1983 smash single “Weekend” by Class Action. From the very first downbeat, the track transports listeners to dancefloors of the past. As Class Action’s echoing refrain “can’t take the heartbreak” defines the track, we can’t help but transport ourselves to nights of disco’s past. It’s another brilliant example of how all trends do eventually come full-circle and can be reborn.

Check out the video for “Heartbreak” below, download or stream the track on your favorite platform, and be on the lookout for the next single from Outlier Records, “6,000ft,” dropping November 13.

It was a decade ago that Logan Garrison, better known as DJ Lo_G, first took the stage to spin sets for crowds in the snowy towns of Lake Tahoe and Aspen. Originally spinning sounds in the realm of glitch and bass music, he began to develop a passion for all things house as he returned to his hometown and hasn’t looked back since. Over the years, DJ Lo_G has become a fixture in the Aspen nightlife scene as he has found a home at Belly Up and regularly warms up the stage for some of dance music’s biggest artists like The Chainsmokers, Chris Lake, Slow Magic, Nora En Pure, and most recently ZHU. Joining the EDM Identity team back in 2018, he’s dug even deeper into dance music and the festival scene. Whether he’s covering events like Mysteryland and shows in Aspen, interviewing artists like Hannah Wants, and reviewing fresh releases, his passion for the entire community shines throughout.
