Spend Halloween with the Multitalented Pell at Rough Trade NYC

October 30th, 2017

After Hurricane Katrina hit, Jared Pellerin and his family left New Orleans for Jackson, Miss., and he began making beats, allowing him to make friends, gain confidence and eventually begin performing, which continued while at Mississippi State University. Pellerin ultimately decided to halt his studies and after putting out several singles as the rapper-singer-songwriter-producer Pell, he self-released Floating While Dreaming (stream it below) in 2014. “The 22-year old rapper and singer has a distinct style that blends the old with the new,” said Hip-Hop DX. “He is a storyteller, weaving his life experiences with melodic beats. The album’s title describes how he lives his dreams and inspires others to chase their own.” Pell (above, performing “Runaway”) has remained busy ever since, putting out singles, collaborating with the likes of G Eazy and Big Gigantic and honing his live performances. And to that end, in mid-tour form, Pell comes to Rough Trade NYC tomoroow night. Brooklyn rapper Jimi Tents opens the show.

With New Tune, Big Gigantic Launch Tour This Weekend at Terminal 5

March 10th, 2016

These days it seems like electronic music is as big as big as it’s ever been. So you’d think it would be tough to stand out in such a crowded field. But that hasn’t been the case with Big Gigantic. With only two members, producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken, Big Gigantic refers to the band’s sound, not its size. They began making music together in Boulder, Colo., in 2008, and if they had stuck to just putting jazz melodies over dance beats, that might have been enough for them to have a different sound. But what really makes people notice Big Gigantic’s music is that Lalli also plays the sax. The duo put out A Place Behind the Moon (stream it below) in 2010 and they haven’t looked back. The high-energy festival favorites have put out a slew of remixes and singles ever since, including the recently released “The Little Things” featuring Angela McCluskey (stream it below). And with the arrival of new music, Big Gigantic kick off a new tour this weekend, on Friday and Saturday at Terminal 5. Come join the dance party.

Bass Center VIII: Bassnectar Plays a Big Show in a Big Room

October 2nd, 2014

DJ and producer Lorin Ashton has been winning over fans across the world as Bassnectar thanks to his wild live performances and incredible light shows, not to mention his activism and community engagement. Several years ago Bassnectar kicked off his first regional event called a Bass Center. And the most recent installment, Bass Center VIII, comes to Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. Per Ashton himself, “It’s a ‘Come One, Come All’ special event, with people traveling from all corners, coming from miles around, road tripping, hitchhiking, sky diving, teleporting by any means necessary to gather under one roof for the 8th Bass Center: our largest, wildest, noisiest and most beautiful to date.” And of course, Bassnectar won’t be going it alone. Not only can you expect a huge dance party and a crazy light show, but he’ll also be joined by like-minded acts Big Gigantic, Rusko and Paper Diamond. Come be a part of the party. It will be one not to miss.

Beats, Bass and Sax: Don’t Miss Big Gigantic Next Time

February 16th, 2012


These days it seems like electronic music is as big as big as it’s ever been. So you’d think it would be tough to stand out in such a crowded field. But that hasn’t been the case with Big Gigantic. With only two members, producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken, Big Gigantic refers to the band’s sound, not its size. They began making music together in Boulder, Colo., in 2008, and if they had stuck to just putting jazz melodies over dance beats, that might have been enough for them to have a different sound. But what really makes people notice Big Gigantic’s music is that Lalli also plays the sax. The duo put out A Place Behind the Moon in 2010 and they haven’t looked back since. A new disc, Nocturnal, came out last month and you can download it for free here. Check out Big Gigantic, above, doing “Rise and Shine” for livewiremusic.com, and make sure you act fast next time they’re in town, because Sunday’s show at Webster Hall is sold out.
