Big Gigantic release funk-doused EP, ‘Where I Wanna Be’

Big Gigantic release funk-doused EP, ‘Where I Wanna Be’Big Gigantic Where I Wanna Be

Dance music’s sax man, Dominic Lalli, and his drumming partner, Jeremy Salken, have released their three-track Where I Wanna Be EP under their Big Gigantic stage name. The EP is named after the crowd favorite single, a piano-laden, soul-filled, oscillating synth groover with a blissfully serenading sax solo. This release comes days after a successful Red Rocks back-to-back performance, the eighth annual version of Big Gigantic’s Rowdytown.

This comes after the release of “Friends” featuring Ashe and “You’re The One” featuring Nevve, both featured on the extended play. These two singles are on the smoother, classic, pop-funk side, while “Where I Wanna Be” takes a heavier direction to the groups original electro-funk style. The Boulder duo has taken 2019 in stride, releasing new singles since three years ago and enough to fill an extended play.

Big Gigantic is the latest act to ride on the last waves of summer with a compelling release, and they’re here to prove they’re still king of the game. After a period of silence, the Boulder duo returned with their first single in three years, “You’re the One” with Nevve in June. Now, Big G has followed up with another anthem—”Friends” with Ashe—delivering their beloved signature combination of breezy vocals, brass, and feel-good messages. According to Ashe, the group performed “Friends” at Coachella 2017, only to see its release to fruition a couple years later.

Beginning mellow with layers of plucky strings and soft shakers that build, Ashe sings about a breakup that won’t let go. The melancholy tone quickly shifts when horns crescendo into an uplifting blare and momentous beats. Big G lets the horn take the lead on a symphonic interlude that transforms the lyrical connotations into a carefree jazzy ensemble. Embracing the easy-living mindset of summer, “Friends” waxes summer poetic on its double meaning for both listeners and Big Gigantic.

“Through life’s ups, downs, makeups, breakups, and everything in-between, you always count on your friends,” the duo said in a tweet about the tune.

Big Gigantic return with first single in three years, ‘You’re The One’

Big Gigantic return with first single in three years, ‘You’re The One’Big Gigantic Press Pic June 2019

It’s been nearly three years since Big Gigantic‘s last solo endeavor. 2016 saw the emergence of the Brighter Future LP, but the world hasn’t had new Big G material since 2017’s set of remixes for Brighter Future. The wait is over, though, and the duo are back with a new single, “You’re The One,” with Nevve.

The talented songstress proves to be a perfect addition to the band’s horn-infused style, as her vocals lead up to an easygoing, trumpet-highlighted chorus. “You’re The One” will thrill longtime Big G fans, who can find comfort in the tune’s laid-back style and signature brassy elements.

“We’re so excited to start this next phase of Big Gigantic,” the duo stated in a press release. “We’re starting the process of looking directly inward with our song ‘You’re The One.’ The theme of the song is loving yourself, which in this day is something we could all do more of. We put so much pressure on ourselves to succeed, do the best we can, be the best we can & keep up with others around us. That pressure can easily turn from something positive and motivating, into something negative and uninspiring. It can lead to some dark places so it’s important to take a step back and remember to take time to love yourself.”

Bass breeder of a most funk-infused variety, Opiuo has cooked up a special playlist for Dancing Astronaut ahead of his performance at central California’s next round of Lightning In A Bottle festival, on May 8.

The New Zealand-born, Australian resident, Opiuo takes listeners through the chromatic length of his aural crates, with tracks spanning tender, melodic house (Lane 8‘s “Atlas”) to foreboding mid-tempo electro (1788-L‘s “Cyberspace”). Like-minded funk and experimental bass producers run abound, with additional offerings from CloZee, G Jones, Big Gigantic, and of course, some innovative firepower from Opiuo himself to adequately ready Lightning In A Bottle attendees for a splendidly strange DJ set.

I’m so excited to be back at Lightning In A Bottle, one of my favourite festivals in North America,” says Opiuo. “Here are a bunch of songs I love from a bunch of friends and legends playing on the weekend. You can expect a tonne of brand new music from me on the night as we dance away into the bass heavy funkadelicoblivion.

Tickets to Lightning In A Bottle, held at Buena Vista Lake, as well as general festival information, can be found here.

As Elements Lakewood Music & Arts Festival looks ahead to its third iteration with the release of its 2019 lineup, the expression “the third time’s a charm” is particularly apt. Boasting a number of heavy hitters hailing from the house genre, Elements Lakewood’s lineup will bring Disclosure, FISHER, Shiba San, and Justin Martin to Elements’ Pennsylvania home, to script a bumping next chapter in the festival’s history of production. Spanning more than 100 artists in its totality, the festival’s 2019 lineup also sees Elements Lakewood organizers issue noteworthy nods to Big Gigantic, Sofi Tukker, Seth Troxler, Damian Lazarus, and Clozee, among other artists.

A favorite among camping enthusiasts, Elements Lakewood will once more blend talent from techno, bass, jam rock, funk, and other sub-genres on a sprawling 200-acre campground that offers attendees five different stages of musical diversion. Complete with wellness activities like aromatherapy and sunset yoga, not to mention a myriad of camp games including basketball and volleyball, Elements Lakewood ensures that attendees won’t spend a single second of their time at the event idle. In a credit to the diversity of Elements Lakewood’s offerings, event-goers will also have the opportunity to partake in kayak trips at sunset, water sports like canoeing and swimming, and post-dusk adventures like a stroll through a kaleidoscope light-decorated forest.

Back to offer the ultimate soul renewal experience in its seamless intermingling of outdoor fun and good music, Elements Lakewood is a bona fide must attend for 2019.
