Look I know everyone else in the blogosphere is totally blogging this into the ground, but it’s all for good reason: Big Gigantic gave away their full LP, Nocturnal, FOR FREE less than 48 hours ago, and every single track off the release, is, remarkably, downright incredible. To the point where you feel bad for not paying for such a well-crafted work of sonic art.
Coloradian two-piece, Big Gigantic, are not a new name, at least to their bass-music-makin peers. As a matter of fact, nearly every notable artist I’ve personally interviewed in the past six months has not only mentioned, but has whole-heartedly praised Big Gigantic as being currently the single most compelling emerging act in the underground EDM realm. For the short & sweet of it, Big Gigantic make inspiring bass music that bursts with infinite layers of undiluted soulfulness. And during their live performances, with the use of live productions, saxophone, and percussion, they successfully bring the beating heart of their enthralling sound to life.
With no California shows scheduled as of yet, and an even more devastating absence from the Coachella line-up, we sunshine state kids have only this LP to clutch onto, as the closest gateway to experiencing Big Gigantic’s unique and eloquent approach to sound. And be forewarned: if you are listening to this release on your computer speakers, you are depriving yourself of the very grip of total-body resonance that makes their music so incredibly exhilarating.
Download the entire release for FREE here, and listen to the whole release in numerical order, from start to finish. Don’t feel obligated to move to this music; just relax and allow it to move you.
