Big Gigantic, whose blend of mind-bending beats, thunderous bass and frenetic melodies has developed a rabid following since forming in 2008, have quickly become one of the most celebrated acts in live music. Their latest full-length album, 2014’s The Night Is Young—the fifth album by Boulder, CO-based saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken—saw their sound hit another dimension with its eclectic mix of tracks spanning from electronic and dance to hip-hop and electro soul.
With a provocative sound that’s as thoughtful as it is danceable, Big Gigantic weaves 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.
After graduating with a master’s degree in jazz at the Manhattan School of Music, Lalli relocated to Boulder and began performing with Salken, experimenting with the idea of interpreting traditional DJ?based music with live instruments. 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 U.S. tour. Their other releases–Wide Awake (2009), A Place Behind The Moon (2010), 2012’s Nocturnal (which has received more than 1 million downloads to date) and The Night Is Young—have since followed. All music is available for free via the band’s website www.biggigantic.net.
Big Gigantic’s 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 marathon shows feature a variety of songs new, old and unreleased, as well as outside?of?the?box remixes including Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow,” Aloe Blacc’s “I Need a Dollar” and Notorious B.I.G.’s “Notorious Thugs.”
Since forming, Big Gigantic has toured the country countless times and has become a smash on the festival circuit having performed at all major U.S. festivals including Coachella (where they brought out a local Indio, CA high school marching band during their set), Lollapalooza, Ultra Music Festival, Hangout, Austin City Limits, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo (where they’ve appeared both on their own and as Musical Director of 2014’s Skrillex Superjam performing alongside Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Robby Krieger, Lauryn Hill, Zedd, Mickey Hart and Janelle Monae plus more), Electric Forest and Outside Lands among many others. They have also held their own annual event at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre called “Rowdytown,” which has sold out every year since its 2012 inception and saw an expansion to two days in 2014. Also in the fall of 2014, the duo performed at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City supporting Bassnectar.
Big Gigantic is currently in the studio working on new music to be released in late 2015.

There are melodic bass producers, and then there is Nick Miller. The Denver-based producer known as Illenium has been turning heads in the dance music community over the past year and for good reason. Illenium has distinguished himself from the myriad of others through an unrivaled ability to create an immersive emotional experience of highs and lows that pulls on the heart strings and leaves the listener awestruck, accomplishing in the span of just a few short minutes what takes many a full set. He has displayed an adeptness for creating aural arrangements that vary in style, yet always maintain beauty, complexity and emotional depth. Illenium gave the world a taste of what he has to offer in 2014 with standout originals “Falling In,” “So Wrong,” “Make Me Do;” remixes of Dawn Golden, Odesza, Oh Wonder; and performances at Global Dance Festival, Decadence NYE and other select dates. However, as foreshadowed by his inclusion in UKF’s “Ones to Watch: 15 for 2015,” this is poised to be Illenium’s breakout year.
