For the 75th installment of The Dirt, K.M.O.C. and Korbz teamed up to create a playlist worthy of only the most loyal GDD fans. This installment of The Dirt is perfect for anywhere a summer day might take you. Whether that is long naps on the beach, or late nights grooving in the club, The Dirt #75 is an ideal companion for your summer plans.
In just nine days from now, thousands will embark on a journey to a place unlike any other, The Do LaB‘s Lightning in a Bottle. The excellent music, beautiful art, spiritually cleansing yoga, and educational speakers are all to be enjoyed to the fullest at one of my favorite festivals that takes place at the beautiful Oak Canyon Ranch. After attending last year’s LIB, it’s difficult to put to words what my incredible experience was like, but I can assure you that you will be more than happy to have been a part of something much different than your typical music festival. With a well-rounded, eclectic lineup including the legendary Bassnectar, and dozens of other big names/underground acts, I can already tell it’s going to be too much fun going from set to set. Grab your tickets with the link below, check out a video/pictures from last year, and the LIB 2012 mixtape contest winner after the jump!
First, I want to say that I have been following Big Gigantic for a couple of years now and I believe that they are one of the top up and coming electronic music acts to look out for. With that being said, the Colorado native masterminds behind the visionary project, Dominic Lalli (Production/Sax) & Jeremy Salken (Drums), have been refining their sound into a genuinely unique fusion of sultry saxophone melodies, acoustic drums, and bass-heavy electronic music production. Their style cannot be classified into a single genre, but an exceptional variety of glitch, dubstep, drum & bass, and hip-hop that combines to form the essence of Big Gigantic. I had the chance to see them for the first time back in September and I was thoroughly impressed by their live execution and strong stage presence. Being a hybrid of a live band and a DJ set, they had a dynamic that I wasn’t accustomed to, but I quickly embraced it and I now look back on it as an inspiration to my own music career. Big Gigantic shows are an awesome party atmosphere with nothing but good vibes.
We had the chance to chat with Dominic about several topics including inspiration, influences, and their new album. Check out the GDD™ exclusive interview and a video featuring the single from their new album, Nocturnal, due out January 11, 2012 after the jump.
