Big Gigantic unveils ‘Interstellar Concoction;’ sets fall tour

P1015002_copy.jpgBig Gigantic, whose blend of mind-bending beats, thunderous bass, and frenetic melodies has developed a rabid following since forming in 2008, will take their sound to yet another dimension this October when they release Nocturnal. The album, by Boulder, CO-based saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken, solidifies Big Gigantic as a key player in the worlds of electronic, dance, and hip-hop.

With a provocative sound that’s as thoughtful as it is danceable, Big Gigantic’s new songs like "Nocturnal" and "Hopscotch" weave whirling melodies into addictive beats and samples that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Kanye West or LCD Soundsystem single. No genre is off-limits for Big Gigantic, whose breakthrough sound channels everything from funk and dub-step to house and hip-hop.

Watch the video for "Rise and Shine," the first single from ‘Nocturnal,’ here:

The duo built up early hype in 2008 with local shows and one-offs around the country before releasing their debut album Fire It Up in 2009 and embarking on a full US tour.

This fall, Big Gigantic will take their mind-blowing live show across the country for dates with Pretty Lights and Bassnectar, multiple festival appearances, and a slew of their own headlining shows.
