Big Gigantic established themselves as pioneers of live electronic music with the band’s inception in 2008. Now, more than 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.
MadeinTYO has managed to carve out a spot for himself amongst Future, Young Thug, and Migos in the crowded Atlanta hip-hop scene. His bass-heavy production is sonically right in line with the street sensibilities of the south but his style is more playful and breezy than most of his contemporaries.
