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.

A limited number of early bird three-day GA and VIP passes to the festival’s 2019 edition are now available and can be purchased here.

Sunday Morning Medicine Vol. 156 with Moon Boots, Tchami, Nora En Pure + more

Sunday Morning Medicine Vol. 156 with Moon Boots, Tchami, Nora En Pure + moreSmm@0.

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections — old and new — in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.


For nearly two decades, Bonobo has been cultivating an easygoing sound, one that’s lush with balmy beats and calming instrumentals. This sonic stunner, “Kiara,” makes an appearance on the UK musician’s 2010 album, Black Sands.

Tchami‘s “Zeal” instantly captured the hearts of fans with its merry melody and grooving beat upon its release in 2017. The song’s infectious ambiance made it a clear standout on the French producer’s Revelations EP.

As the bonus track on Big Gigantic‘s 2010 LP of the same name, “A Place Behind the Moon” saw Big Gigantic in their finest form. The Colorado group brought along members of STS9 for this alluring collaboration that perfectly summed up the 12-track album.

In August 2017, Moon Boots revealed his debut album, First Landing. Its title track is deeply rooted house in rhythm and undertones of bass, maintaining a mellow and almost sultry sonic atmosphere throughout.

In Nora En Pure‘s “Tears In Your Eyes,” gorgeous strings and a delicate piano melody usher in an otherworldly beat and memorable vocal hook. This catchy Spinnin’ release was met with praise from the South African producer’s fan base  and rightly so.

NGHTMRE and Big Gigantic team up for ‘Like That’

NGHTMRE has had an incredible come-up since “Street” became the trap anthem of 2015. He’s been repped by Mad Decent, OWSLA, and Monstercat. At Lost Lands, he announced the launch of own label with SLANDER, Gud Vibrations, named after the artists’ collaboration. One would think NGHTMRE’s hands would be full, but apparently, that’s not the case.

The 28-year-old has teamed up with Big Gigantic to release a mosaic of jazz, funk, future bass: “Like That.” The festival pleaser has the makings of an anthem, kicking off with that classic Big G circus feel — flush with hip-hop beats, brass, and reminiscent of the golden era of jazz revitalized. However, “Like That” doesn’t stay in Big G’s world entirely. The drops are contemporary — more chiseled, more demanding — and they hold a meticulous touch of a producer who has felt the acceleration of exponential growth, made possible by NGHTMRE.

“Like That” is a solid collaboration that surpasses the standards of the many genres of electronica, especially in terms of big stage festival tracks.
