ABOUT BIG GIGANTIC:
Founded by Boulder, CO-based saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken, Big Gigantic emerged in 2009 with an utterly original fusion of electronica, hip-hop, pop, and jazz to create a dance music sound all their own. The duo quickly earned critical acclaim and a fervent fan following with show-stealing festival sets and a non-stop series of independent releases including 2016’s breakthrough LP, Brighter Future, which debuted at #2 on Billboard’s “Top Dance/Electronic Albums” chart fueled by such multi-million streaming hits as “All of Me (Feat. Logic & ROZES),” “The Little Things (Feat. Angela McCluskey),” “Highly Possible (Feat. Waka Flocka Flame),” and “Miss Primetime (Feat. Pell),” to name just a few. 2020 saw the arrival of their acclaimed seventh album, Free Your Mind, followed in 2021 by the Leisure Season Vol. 1 EP. Now boasting more than 1.5M monthly listeners via Spotify alone, Big Gigantic have also proven an unforgettable live act with performances at such gatherings as Bonnaroo, Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Electric Forest, as well as their own annual Rowdytown headline event at Morrison, CO’s world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre. In addition, the duo has earned a wide array of high-profile sync placements spanning Apple, Fox’s Empire, ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, sporting events including Wimbledon, NASCAR, and the NBA, and more. In 2016, Big Gigantic established A Big Gigantic Difference, a 501(c)3 initiative raising more than $1M for local non-profit organizations across the country thus far.
