Last year, Big Gigantic their eighth studio album, Brighter Future 2. The record notably features the single “Open Your Mind” featuring Griz. The dubstep track is one of the many genres that Big Gigantic has dabbled into. Meanwhile, the album also contains a “feel-good” house track called “Keep on Rising” featuring Aloe Blacc. Lastly, Big Gigantic is also not afraid to get their hands on electronic pop, evident in their track, “Keep on Falling,” featuring Nevve and Super Duper. During an interview, Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli explained, “Yeah, I’d say we’re on the bass music side of things. However, we play all different tempos and genres, especially within our live set. We just try to do everything. We don’t do one thing, that’s for sure.”
The duo also often collaborates with hip-hop artists. In 2016, Big Gigantic released the noteworthy collaboration single “Highly Possible” with hip-hop icon Waka Flocka Flame. That same year they also released “All of Me,” featuring Logic and Rozes. Both tracks were featured in the first prequel of their latest album, Brighter Future. After this, the record had remixed, and deluxe versions the following year. Lalli added that their collaboration with Waka had a cool story behind it. “We met Waka Flocka through doing all the Mad Decent Block Parties that used to happen with Diplo and Major Lazer. At that time, there was one summer in particular when Flosstradamus were good homies. Curt was doing the shows with Waka so that Waka would come out to all their sets. We got to know him through that. He was always a really cool guy.”
Emerging from Boulder, Colorado, the duo has consistently performed instrumental electronic music. Their genres range from hip-hop to jazz, EDM, and basically, any type of music they can get their hands on. Big Gigantic is the new class of performers who call their art “livetronica.” Despite not being signed to a major record label, their high-energy sets have often been their calling cards. Over the years, the duo has become a festival favorite. They have appeared at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Ultra Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, Austin City Limits, and many more. For 2023 alone, Big Gigantic has over ten festival appearances.
Big Gigantic, comprising Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken, began as roommates but became a music partnership. In an interview, Salken described themselves as “bonded brothers.” He continued, “We lived together for a year or two, the bonding formed there as roommates. Seeing each other every day, living in each other’s space, and all that. That set us up for a successful career late relationship as bandmates. Because we knew how each other lived and stuff like that.”
