$1 per ticket goes to Big Gigantic’s 501(c)3 nonprofit— A Big Gigantic Difference Foundation-- which partners with a new non-profit organization every year to be the recipient of the majority of the funds raised for a yearly impact project. Past projects span everything from youth music education to feeding the hungry to creating greater access in dance music.
Big Gigantic are veterans of blending electronic dance music with their live instruments to create Big G's truly unique sound; a sound that is as thoughtful as it is danceable. They draw light out of an inimitable mélange of impressive instrumentation, cinematic production, propulsive percussion, and, of course, triumphant saxophone. The genre-bending Denver, CO pair—Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken—uplift with every subsequent album and show, mixing musically mature melodies with addictive beats and samples that crosses all styles of music from jazz to hip hop, funk to dubstep.
After emerging in 2009, Big Gigantic first amplified a message of light on Brighter Future in 2016. It reeled in hundreds of millions of streams independently and touted bangers a la “All of Me” [feat. Logic & ROZES], “The Little Things” [feat. Angela McCluskey], “Highly Possible” [feat. Waka Flocka Flame], “Wide Open” [feat. Cherub], and more. Their music would be utilized by everyone from Apple, Wimbledon, NASCAR, NBA, HBO, and Fox to the trailers for Valerian and Dirty Grandpa. They’ve ignited the bills of Coachella, Lollapalooza, ULTRA Music Festival, Hangout Music Festival, Electric Forest, and Bonnaroo. Plus, they headline and consistently sell out their own Rowdytown at Red Rocks Amphitheatre—now in its 10th year for 2022.
Putting their words into action, they run the 501(c)3 A Big Gigantic Difference Foundation, which supports non-profits for at-risk youth, music education, and more. Thus far, they have raised $1 million-plus for charity.
In the midst of the Global Pandemic, they continued to create, pushing forward towards what would become their eighth full-length offering, Brighter Future 2—which was released on June 10, 2022. Highlights from the album include “Open Your Mind” [with GRiZ], “Deja Vu” [with Kota The Friend] & “Keep on Rising [with Aloe Blacc]. On Jan 27, 2023 Big Gigantic dropped a bass house remix of their own track “Keep on Rising” to rave reviews.
