FOLLOWED BY FESTIVAL APPEARANCES AT COACHELLA, SASQUATCH!, COUNTERPOINT AND SPRING AWAKENING
THE NIGHT IS YOUNG, which marks the fifth album by Boulder, CO-‐based saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli anddrummer Jeremy Salken following Fire It Up (2009), Wide Awake (2009), A Place Behind The Moon (2010) and 2012’sNocturnal (which has received more than one million downloads to date), is an eclectic mix of tracks that span genres fromelectronic and dance to hip hop and electro soul. With a provocative sound that’s as thoughtful as it is danceable, BIG GIGANTIC weaves whirling melodies into addictive beats and samples that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Kanye West orLCD Soundsystem single. No genre is off-limits for BIG GIGANTIC, whose breakthrough sound channels everything fromfunk and dub-step to house and hip-hop.
There are eight songs on THE NIGHT IS YOUNG including “Touch The Sky,” a blazing instrumental that made its debut in late 2013 to critical acclaim throughout the blogsphere, as well as its next single, the album’s title track which featuresCherub. Look for its video which features both BIG GIGANTIC and Cherub to make its debut the week of February 17. There is also the crushing dubstep song “Lets Go!,” the dazzling sax hooked track “Just For The Thrill” and velvety number“Shooting Stars.”

About BIG GIGANTIC:
Formed in 2008, saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli (classically trained with a master’s degree in jazz from the Manhattan School of Music) and drummer Jeremy Salken interpret traditional DJ-based music with live instruments and have successfully created an innovative, distinct sound that’s all their own. Their transcendent live shows are a showcase of brilliant improvisation and a tightly-knit bond between Salken and Lalli, who breathlessly alternates between keys, sax and laptop, building a futuristic wall of sound that keeps the crowd on its feet. The duo leaves no genre off-limits as they channel everything from funk and dubstep to house and hip-hop. Their latest album, NOCTURNAL, was released in early 2012 via their own label BIG GIGANTIC Records as a free download on their website www.biggigantic.net and has received over 750,000 downloads to date. BIG GIGANTIC have spent the last two years on various sold-out headlining tours across the country and received rave reviews from their many festival appearances that have included Lollapalooza, Ultra Music Festival, Hangout, Austin City Limits, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest andOutside Lands among many others.

Meanwhile, music fans in Nashville will have the privilege of getting an advance listen to JOSHUA’s new material when he performs a free public showcase during Country Radio Seminar (CRS) week, Wednesday, February 19 at12th & Porter. JOSHUA’s set starts at 9pm.
“I always look forward to touring and at this point in my career connecting with a live audience and always trying to gain new fans, is one of the things I look forward to most,” the Nashville-based artist says. “The set list will definitely include the songs on my solo record, but there will be hints of Steel Magnolia. I feel a kind of responsibility to the audience to make song choices that flow from start to finish and that build the show so they leave feeling satisfied and wanting to experience it again. That’s my goal with every show.”
The uptempo and driving “Honk (If You’re Tonky)” is available now on all digital retailers, including iTunes. “It spoke very loudly to me right off the bat as an anthem for guys,” JOSHUA shares. “It speaks to the misunderstood side of men, that makes us rough around the edges while carrying the burden of a big heart and just wanting to live in harmony with yourself. What better than an ‘anthem’ for a first single?” Stream “Honk (If You’re Tonky)” now athttp://youtu.be/feWZnCS5iHs.
