Listen to Get On Up:
About Big Gigantic: Formed in 2008, saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli (classically trained with a master’s degree in jazz from the Manhattan School of Music) and drummer Jeremy Salken interpret traditional DJ-based music with live instruments and have successfully created an innovative, distinct sound that’s all their own. Their transcendent live shows are a showcase of brilliant improvisation and a tightly-knit bond between Salken and Lalli, who breathlessly alternates between keys, sax and laptop, building a futuristic wall of sound that keeps the crowd on its feet. The Boulder, CO-based duo leaves no genre off-limits as they channel everything from funk and dubstep to house and hip-hop.
Their latest album, THE NIGHT IS YOUNG, was released in February 2014 and marks the fifth album for the duo following Fire It Up (2009), Wide Awake (2009), A Place Behind The Moon (2010) and 2012’s Nocturnal (which has received more than one million downloads to date). Big Gigantic have spent the last few years on various sold-out headlining tours across the country and received rave reviews from their many festival appearances that have included Coachella, Lollapalooza, Ultra Music Festival, Hangout, Austin City Limits, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest and Outside Lands among many others.
Dream Big: Big Gigantic’s journey is beautifully captured in Dream Big: A Big Gigantic Story, a short documentary film which chronicles the duo’s history and how they broke saxophone into dance music alongside a compelling behind the scenes look at producing last year’s Rowdytown show:
