Big Gigantic established themselves as pioneers of live electronic music with the band's inception in 2008. Now, almost 10 years later, they continue to shape the genre by moving it forward with each new release. The Colorado-based saxophonist/producer, Dominic Lalli and drummer, Jeremy Salken, are veterans of blending electronic dance music with their live instruments to create Big G's truly unique sound, that is as thoughtful as it is danceable. Big Gigantic mixes musically mature melodies with addictive beats and samples, that are familiar to a Kanye West or LCD Soundsystem single, and crosses all styles of music from jazz to hip hop, funk to dubstep.

After graduating with a master's degree in jazz from 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 and have since toured the country countless times enjoying a 90% tour sell out rate. Big Gigantic's transcendent live shows are a showcase of brilliant improvisation and the tightly-‐knit bond between Salken and Lalli, who breathlessly alternates between keys, sax and laptop, building a contagious sound that keeps the crowd on its feet.


Over the years, the band has cemented themselves as a must see act on the US festival circuit, having performed at every major festival including: Coachella (where a local Indio, CA high school marching band joined them on stage), Lollapalooza, Ultra Music Festival, Hangout, Austin City Limits, Governors Ball, Electric Forest, Outside Lands, and Bonnaroo (where they’ve appeared both on their own and as Musical Director of Skrillex’s 2014 Superjam performing alongside Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Robby Krieger from The Doors, Lauryn Hill, and Janelle Monae, among others). Big Gigantic has also appeared internationally at such festivals as Lollapalooza Argentina and Brazil, and Mad Decent Block party India. In 2014, the duo made their debut at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City supporting Bassnectar.


Big Gigantic has released five full length studio albums to date, and four recent singles that have taken the band to new heights: “Get On Up” (2015), “Good Times Roll" w. Griz (2016), and “The Little Things" feat. Angela McCluskey (2016) "The Little Things". The latter, seeing national acclaim, with over 1 million downloads and 15+ million streams, and landing sync placements everywhere from Fox's break through show ‘Empire’ to ESPN's Wimbledon 2016 & NBA coverage.


Beyond their five-year-running, two-night festival, Rowdytown, at Colorado's famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Big Gigantic is known for giving back in their community. With strong partnerships that include local non profits such as Conscious Alliance, The Kitchen Community, and national organization Electric Family- the band, in coordination with their fans, have given back both monetarily and with their time through various #ABigGiganticDifference events. Big Gigantic's forthcoming album, Brighter Future, reflects their commitment to working closely with the community to make the world a better place.
