Car Big Gigantic re

Today we have something pretty unexpected.. Globe trotting festival trap pioneer Carnage has linked up with one of America's most favorite electronic live acts Big Gigantic for an unlikely pairing that won't sound anything like you'd expect. 

They've remixed Brighton based producer Zac Samuel's "I'll Be Pushin On" and given his house song and even more smooth facelift. They go full saxophone fueled deep house here, and while surprising it works very well. They capture the catchy vocal and melody from the original and make things somehow even more smooth than the original while also layering in what Big Gigantic is known best for, the Saxophone with Dom of the group throwing down an absurd sax line. Listen below to the premiere of the collaboration and grab an exclusive free download. Enjoy!

Big Gigantic Release Exciting Documentary Capturing How They Brought Saxophone To EDM

Posted in Bangin, Video by nick | Tags: , ,


Today we have something very special from an act we’ve been featuring on TSIS for years! Big Gigantic, the Boulder, Colorado based live electronic duo featuring Dominic Lalli who produces the music, DJs live and plays Saxophone during the entire set and Jeremy Salken who performs on the drums.

We've been featuring the band since their early remixes like "I Need A Dolla" (Aloe Blacc) or "Black And Yellow" (Wiz Khalifa) or the A Place Behind The Moon album

This awesome 20 minute long short film of a documentary dives much deeper into the groups past with the start of Dom explaining his true Jazz background at the Manhattan school of music who joined the funk band, The Motet, who are now the backing band at their Red Rocks show this weekend. The documentary highlights the hilarious struggle that manager Ben Baruch had trying to convince booking agents to sign the band when none of them thought a Saxophone would work in the EDM space. 


Since the groups formation in 2008, they've had 4 years of sold out Red Rocks shows at our collaborative Rowdytown event, along with playing at just about every music festival and going strong. 

This is a very well done piece on a group we are massive fans of and support to the fullest. Enjoy!

P.S. Rowdytwon is coming up this weekend and Saturday tickets are long gone but you can purchase tickets here for Friday if you haven't already.

[PREMIERE] Griz & Big Gigantic – Good Times Roll : Must Hear Funk Collaboration [Free Download]

Posted in Bangin, Premieres by Jake | Tags: , , ,


Colorado electronic powerhouses GRiZ and Big Gigantic teamed up back in 2013 on the collaborative single "Power" that proceeded to tear up festival crowds for some time and is still heard by both artists.

Well the two have linked up once again on "Good Times Roll" and it's safe to say it's one of the best tracks we've heard all summer. The funk is present in this tune as psychedelic keys are placed alongside a funky bassline, silky guitar riff, soulful singers, high energy percussion, and of course it’s all tied together by dueling saxophones.

Impressive songwriting abilities are shown in this infectious collab with irresistible singing & sax lines, in which there is even a call & response section between the vocals and horns that will be sure to be stuck in your head after listening. This soulful, feel good song is appropriately titled “Good Times Roll” as this summertime anthem brings just the right amount of gritty bass and has come just in time for a seasonal treat while summer is still going strong.

Both artists are gearing up for big Red Rocks shows in September as Griz sold out the legendary venue over a month out for his first show there, and Big G is hitting their 4th Rowdytown double night run that TSIS presents on September 25th and 26th (which is also on track to sell out in advance, so don't miss out on tickets!). Enjoy!
