    Big Gigantic Talks Wynwood Fear Factory & Their New Tour [Interview]


    Guest

    A lot of holidays in the EDM world are super special, but Halloween is definitely up there. Unlike Fourth of July, Memorial Day Weekend, or New Year’s, there’s a special magic that takes over any event or festival during the Hallow’s Eve festivities. Between the attendees dressing up and the inevitably inventive stage designs and decorations, things can get pretty weird (in a great way).

    This coming weekend is the annual Wynwood Fear Factory – this year’s lineup features headlining sets from Porter Robinson and DJ Snake, as well as support from Steve Angello, Oliver Heldens, Wiz Khalifa and Big Gigantic.

    Having just come off their annual Rowdytown show at Red Rocks, I caught up with Big G’s Dom and Jeremy about what Halloween means to them, what it means to play in Miami after a natural disaster, and more.

    Find tickets to Big Gigantic’s current tour here.

    What does Halloween mean to you? Do you have a fond memory of Halloween either in your career or from when you were a kid?

    Dom: We always do something fun for Halloween, we always dress up – some of our stand outs would be Wayne & Garth, probably the top one was Jeremy was a rabbit and I was the pope, that was pretty good.

    Jeremy: We did Cheech & Chong one year. It’s always a good excuse to have fun and get the crowd to dress up, because everyone’s trying to get funky that night so it’s cool. We’ve never been to Miami for Halloween, so I’m looking forward to that.

    I know you guys already do group costumes as a duo, but you are also sometimes a part of Big Grizmatik. If you had to come up with a costume for all four of you, what would it be?

    Dom: Power Rangers, probably. That would be hilarious. Or Voltron, maybe?

    Jeremy: There was a year that, in Denver, Beats Antique dressed up like Dom and I, then someone dressed up like Derek from Pretty Lights, and somebody dressed up like Lorin, and they did this little segment in the middle of a show, like they were playing off all our different things. People were texting me, “Are you at Beats Antique at the Fillmore??” I’m like, “No…” It was super hilarious.

    So yeah, it would be fun to do a Big Grizmatik Halloween, we would freaking rage.

    Oh, I 100% agree. I want to shift the conversation a bit toward your new tour, which just started yesterday, of which the Wynwood Fear Factory stop is a part. Are you going to be playing any new music on that tour, newer than Brighter Future?

    Dom: Yeah, we’ll be playing quite a bit of stuff from the remix and deluxe albums that’s pretty new. We have a handful of new things too that we’ve been playing out here and there; we debuted some things at our Rowdytown Red Rocks show this last weekend. We’ll be playing some new stuff for sure.

    And I’m in the studio right now writing new stuff as we speak, so I’m sure we’ll be even playing some brand, brand, brand new stuff on tour.

    And speaking of Rowdytown, how’d that go? It’s your big annual show at Red Rocks and it’s definitely something your fans look forward to year-round.

    Dom: It was epic. It was a really good one this year – music was great, we did a new set design for it that ended up being just crazy and awesome, seemed like everybody had a good time.

    Is the set design from Rowdytown going to follow you on tour, as well?

    Jeremy: I don’t think that’s possible [laughs].

    Dom: Yeahhhh… we were like 20 feet up in the air, and it took like two days to set up. It’s kind of unrealistic for tour; but you know at Red Rocks, we try to go bigger than anywhere else, just because it’s Red Rocks and it’s Rowdytown, we really try to throw a mini-fest. So we kind of go super extra, but I’m sure something like that will pop up again in New York or Chicago; we’re doing Rowdytowns there that we just announced. We’re definitely gonna try to go big for those.

    As you know Miami was recently rocked by hurricanes. When you travel to do a show in some place like that, where you can bring happiness to people when they really need it, does that affect you emotionally in any way?

    Jeremy: It’s definitely super special for us to be able to do that, and that’s one thing we 100% try to do with our shows, is just provide a place where people can let go of whatever is going on outside of that, and just come in and have fun. And hopefully be in the moment and enjoy life and be with their friends and whatever they want. There’s so much crazy stuff going on right now, it’s definitely been a rough hurricane season – it’s crazy how it’s just back to back to back.

    And you know with Vegas too, the way concerts are, it’s great that people are strong enough that they don’t let things like that get them down; they come out and that means a lot to us, that they want to do that and we want to provide a space for everyone to feel good.

    So, in other words, you want to give them a Brighter Future?

    Dom: When I came up with that concept a couple years ago, we were towards dropping an album. Where the world was then up until now, that’s really the message that we’ve been trying to spread all along.

    Any final words, particularly for the fans who will be at Wynwood?

    Dom: Yeah, just excited to come down to Miami and play a festival; I don’t know if we’ve ever played a festival there or not, so just excited to bring the good vibes and the brighter future vibes.

      Well, here is a new mix from me: something compiled, executed and delivered, just because...
       

      Since we kicked off our  Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content.  project last year; the vast majority of my DJ'ing has been centred around a housier, disco-centric sound—for which Attic is known—for both, our own events and other ad hoc DJ bookings in around town.

      Of course, we love our Attic sound, however; during this last little while—somewhat regrettably—I've not had much of an opportunity to sit back and relish in some other musical guilty pleasures. This particular line-up of deeper, melodic selections has allowed me to do just that. This is a very much an indulgent mix—let's make no mistake about that.

      Within, you'll hear some newer pieces; you'll hear some that I had stashed away for such an opportunity. Each track has moved me or has made me feel something.

      It's melodic, it's moody and if I've done my job correctly; you'll be taken on a journey for next 80 minutes or so.

      I really hope you dig this one.

      With the success of his new sound in his Get It Started EP Alex Preston continues to take us on a glorious journey of infectious grooves and driving beats in his new Friday Night EP, out now on Basement Sound.
       
      Alex kicks off the EP with title track Friday Night, a bass stomping gem that features Alex Preston’s organic guitar riffs and vocal chops that make for the ideal disco-tinged jam. Next up is Hip Shakin’ Mumma, (that will find you shaking your hips for sure) with its playful key stabs, soaring strings and guitar solos that are accompanied by a toe-tapping vocal. Drawing the sun-soaked EP to a close is Don’t You Mind featuring a jacking guitar lead and shuffling beats making the Friday Night EP the perfect soundtrack to your funk-filled night out.
       
      Speaking on the release Alex tells us: “I’m really stoked with how my “Friday Night” EP turned out. When I was putting the EP together, I wanted to have 3 club tracks that embodied what I love about house music. I wanted each track to have a different feel but I also wanted to be able to play them in my live show and have them work together.”
       
      Shut away in the studio for months, Alex Preston created his own style of disco infused underground house featuring his live guitar and percussion. Along with the sound re-invention, this year sees Alex Preston announce his new live show where elements used in his productions will make a live appearance to support his new style and releases. Expect live guitar licks, cosmic basslines and warm pulsating house beats as the multi-talented artist brings his productions to life. To celebrate the Friday Night EP release, Basement Sound will be hosting Alex's Friday EP Launch at their first “Basement Beach” party at Sydney’s iconic Manly Beach on the 27th July - Basement Beach 001 feat. Alex Preston (Live) at BRKLYN (Sugar Lounge Basement)!

      “The French two-piece who are beginning to build a real name for themselves” - YOU
      Thrown into the electronic and hip-hop music scene at a young age, Trinix’s musical journey has developed into a sweet revival of the 90’s originated genre: French Touch. New effort Otherside continues this pop tinged, riff filled musical restoration. The exploration hits us with a sense of Trinix’s mesmerising production skill, expertly refined over the years.
      In 2017, the two young French producers released their Hide EP that reached an incredible 15 million streams. Having always received strong support from youtube tastemakers MrSuicideSheep and Chill Nation, Trinix continue to distil their various influences in a skilful and modern mix. They oscillate between electro chill, tropical house, nu-funk and future bass in the most sophisticated of ways. 
      To continue the ride, more recent releases like tropical house track Close to Me build suspense in anticipation for their upcoming album release. With a total of 75 million streams and rising, it’s safe to say fans are eagerly awaiting their next promised body of work, May Day.
      As Trinix’s first ever album, May Day comes after 2 years of solid work from the pair. The boys tell us: "The major theme of the album is the Space which we find fascinating by its diversity and which we absolutely want to symbolize thanks to "Mayday". All the titles have been selected with great difficulty and doubt among more than 60 compositions, to obtain a coherent and representative rendering of our Music".
      Ahead of the upcoming album release, this new single is composed with a seriously funky rhythm, formidable chopped vocals and the deliciously soulful voice of Opé Smith. Otherside transforms what you know to be pop-house and adds delectably emotive lyrics to Trinix’s clean cut and consistently seamless production.

      Here is a fresh new mix from us—and one that definitely gives us the warm and fuzzies!
      So, our '
      Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. ' brand as a whole, the music we push—and, indeed, Andrew and I as individual DJs—is often centred around music on the lower, slower, deeper, warm-up tip. That is a label we've always worn with pride. Well, in this instance, our good friend, Flynn—of 'Move 4 Mood' fame—was kind enough to book us for a "peak time" set at The Flinders, and, with that, an opportunity to exercise our tougher, uptempo selections; as such, we did just that!
      We were fortunate to enjoy a heaving, packed dance floor from start to finish, and we delivered a strong selection of suitable cuts—all while staying fairly true to our Attic sound. The crowd response was phenomenal and we had a wonderful time making it all happen—hence the "warm and fuzzies" mentioned above! 
      Hope you enjoy this one as much as we did!
