Explosive duo Big Gigantic have dropped the first single from their upcoming album, 'The Night Is Young' today (December 10). "Touch The Sky" is a fireball of a track, mixing saxophone with dubstep and even adding a bit of Trap. The record is an absolute smash, and is a great first offering from the upcoming album, due out in early February 2014. Check out a stream of the single here and let us know what you think!
Hailing from Boulder, Colorado, the talented duo known as Big Gigantic is coming to New York City for back-to-back performances at Roseland Ballroom, and we will be there on December 30th! The event is a continuation of their Sky High Tour, which they began earlier in September.
Big Gigantic is notorious for their live stage performances that incorporate saxophone by producer Dominic Lalli and drums by Jeremy Salken. With festivals like Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Ultra Music Festival under their belts, this duo is coming at you like a whirlwind with exciting livetronica and filthy beats.
Festival founder Paul Levine is the lifeline of the Spirit of the Suwannee, organizing festivals such as Bear Creek, Purple Hatters Ball and more. We had a chance to chat with Levine about the upcoming Hulaween festival, how he brought String Cheese Incident to Live Oak and his hopes for the festival's future.
Right now we're focusing on three years and there's no guarantee that's going to happen, but that's what we're talking about. We're going to see what happens this fall and if it goes as well as we all hope it will then I'm sure we can look forward to another couple years of it.
Last night at the unorthodox venue, The F Shed, the unorthodox duo from Colorado, Big Gigantic, came on stage as part of their Sky High Tour to put on a show that just kept getting better and better. Their saxophone and drums filled the place up with some of the grooviest tunes that EDM has to offer. All live on set, this is more than just a DJ on the boards – Dominic Lalli kills it on the sax while Jeremy Salken rocks it on his drum set. Their jazzy jam-band sound, along with their dub-synth production, makes for a sound unlike any other.
Help us count down the ten days leading up to Hulaween with the top ten reasons to attend this fabulous festival. Tickets can be purchased here.
1. 9.25 hours of cheese - Starting off with a special three-set show on Halloween night, String Cheese Incident will grace our eyes and ears with nearly half-a-day of unrepentant music-making. The sextet has two decades of tunes in their instrumental arsenal so prepare yourselves for tons of throwbacks, a few contemporary tracks and boundless unadulterated jammage.
As Colorado continues to work on recovering its flood-battered neighborhoods from the extensive damage caused by the September 12 flood, music mavens Big Gigantic, former residents of Colorado, have decided to team up with local friends, artists, and organizations to help support flood relief efforts.
Big Gigantic is still scheduled to perform Friday, September 27 at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO and Saturday, September 28 at the Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Morrison, Co. Both of these shows will be Flood Relief Benefit Shows with a portion of the proceeds going to Conscious Alliance’s flood relief fund. Basic necessities will be provided to community members affected by the floods, which now includes 17,494 damaged homes; 1,502 destroyed homes; 11,700 people evacuated; 1,253 people still unaccounted for; 8 people have lost their lives; and 520 are currently in emergency shelters.
While at Electric Zoo, we had the chance to catch up with Big Gigantic. Jeremy and Dominic have had their hands full with new music, doing good for the community through their current tour, and having a blast performing at all of the summer’s hottest music festivals. Probably some of the coolest guys we’ve talked to, there is no surprise as to why they have A Big Gigantic Family, #ABGF, supporting them full heartedly.
How’s your summer been?
J: We’ve been on the road, playing a lot of festivals. We’ve traveled around as usual. We’ve had some time at home too. Dom’s been working on a new album.
It's no doubt that electronic music has caught the attention of the masses. Since the recent explosion of the genre in 2011, it seems that just about everyone has embraced it. Whether its 'deep house' to 'tropical trap rap' to 'moombahton' the genres continue to expand with a now more than ever diverse roster of seriously mind bending choices. We rounded up a mix of twelve songs that are worthy of so much play time it's ri-dic-u-lous.
