Big Gigantic Got the Crowd Real Rowdy for Rowdytown Number Eight

Big Gigantic

One of the most beloved Red Rocks shows of the season took place in the beautiful city of Morrison this past weekend. This was the spectacular second 3D rendition of Big Gigantic’s very own “Rowdytown” event. The annual two-day run is one of Colorado’s most dear events to all funk and electronica lovers. Across the state and even beyond, the weekend performances certainly did not disappoint. In brief, Big Gigantic, the Boulder-born duo, left Red Rocks buzzing this weekend. Together they brought two very unique and incredible performances, paired with out of this world visuals, colors and lighting.

Big Gigantic

Day 1 Big Gigantic Bring Rowdytown with a Bang

The first night fell on Friday, September 27th. However, the Saturday performance held a completely different and unique vibe than the Friday performance did. Birocratic, The Funk Hunters, and Two Friends opened up for Big G’s night 1. On the other hand, ilo ilo, Flamingosis, and the widely-loved Swedish producer Kasbo gave incredibly beautiful and melodic-based performances on Saturday night.

Day 2 Closes out the Show with a More Melodic Feel

It felt as if the first night was more energetic, where Big Gigantic came out with a bang. However, the second day performances were nothing short of an unforgettable experience. Coupled with an amazing direct opening set from Kasbo, second day brought more melodic and chill feelings throughout the entire crowd. The crowd fell absolutely silent to listen and feel the lower frequencies of the ambiance he brought. All in all, night two was the performance which sold out of the two nights. The environment was packed with excited voices buzzing around the entire night’s performances to come. All in all, it was a truly beautiful experience for music lovers of all types to enjoy many different genres, styles and sounds of music within one night.

Big Gigantic Crushing it for the 8th Time

When Big Gigantic brings out their instruments, there is an unparalleled energy within the crowd for both nights. Dominic Lalli crushes it on saxophone and Jeremy Salken on drums. For this reason, two make an inseparable duo, with beats to make even the shyest of dancers go crazy. All things considered, pairing live instrumentation with the funkiest of electronic beats is what Big G (or their fans, Little G’s) know and love best.

Some of the most beloved tracks the duo played were more notorious ones. However, they also made sure to cover some songs and play some music we never heard before. This created a constantly flowing, constantly moving performance which was one to never forget! The duo dropped crowd favorites, such as “All Of Me,” featuring rapper Logic and Rozes which had the entire crowd singing. Coupled with this were some of their lesser known tracks, such as their track featured with NGHTMRE, “Like That.” The entire night was filled with energetic beats and funky tunes which lasted for hours.

Conclusion

Rowdytown overall was an incredible experience that you have to see to experience and witness live. Not to mention, their smooth live performance and ability to conquer the live instruments. They play paired with some awesome sounding electronic synths. These sounds truly makes for a unique and one-of-a-kind live electronic experience. To conclude, there is no doubt why Big Gigantic is one of the larger names of artists in Colorado.Coupled with being locals, this only makes them more near and dear to our hearts.

SOUNDCLOUD

Blooming into Festival Season with This Year’s Annual Sonic Bloom

One of the most admired and respected festivals in and around Colorado is to take place once again in beautiful, sunny Spanish Peaks Country, and the lineup this year is nothing short of impressive. The four-day festival is held on Hummingbird Ranch, a property Sonic Bloom holds the rights to, which has become notorious for being one of the most beautiful venues around. The lineup this year features headliners Gramatik, Opiuo, an anticipated set from Emancipator Ensemble, and Yheti, to name just a few. Additional artists are sprinkled throughout the lineup, but are not names to be missed—local favorites Detox Unit, The Widdler, Of the Trees, female dub-powerhouse Khiva, and more are performing throughout the four-day festival in late June. The festival also combines bright art installations, multiple booming Funktion-One sound systems, a local creek alongside the festival grounds (last year it wasn’t running due to local droughts, but this year it’s up and running, which locals are incredibly excited about), human performances of all kinds, dancing, yoga, and an overall atmosphere which is loved by locals and music lovers from all over the U.S.

The festival has been home to artists in years past such as Shpongle, Big Gigantic, Keys N Krates, Tipper, Bonobo, and many more. Some of the biggest names in electronic music, incredibly talented artists using some of the latest modern technology and music making equipment, attend this festival and love the live-performance “feel” of so many of the sets. Artists and fans alike love Sonic Bloom for its relaxed vibe and overall healthy atmosphere which is created every year. This year, there are a few special sets and installations we at Party Guru Press are looking forward to.

Yheti is going to throw down a pre-sunrise set right before Culprate’s sunrise set, on the final year of the Hummingbird Stage’s projection-mapped DJ booth. The booth features an expansive and massive art installation which glows from behind the artist, shining patterns and visuals in really cool looking shadows and more. This will be something surely not to miss at this year’s Sonic Bloom. Summers Design LLC created the booth with visuals made by the incredibly talented and adored artists from Pickles Visuals, a company which has gained local hype in recent years through their insane designs and visual arrangements.

   The second art installation we are most excited for is the beautiful illumination from the rainbow glow of what is returning as the Peace Tent. The Peace Tent is an installation made entirely of recycled flagging tape and is created by the artist Emma Balder Art. The art piece is interactive and is meant to serve as a peaceful space, or a meditative spot. Participants who come to the art exhibit are meant to physically feel a change in their emotional state, by feeling peace, unconditional love, completely accepted, warmth and the beauty of the nature around them. The art exhibit has been featured across the United States at exhibits such as Meow Wolf, as well as at other festivals in Colorado, such as Arise and Infrasound.

This year’s Bloom will also feature well-loved artist company who exists under the name of Treenet Willy’s. Last year at Sonic Bloom 2018 was the company’s first year at the festival, and they left an incredible impression, so we are excited to see them come back! Treenet Willy’s is a company which weaves large art installations made out of rope for festival goers to relax on. They can fully support body weight and are incredibly comfortable and soft to lay on, similar to a woven hammock. Last year the team created the first permanent art installations in the middle of the festival grounds. The company specializes in making these art exhibits so that they do not harm the nature or surrounding environments in any way, and allows for the trees to continue to grow while still being able to withstands human interaction. The piece of art stretches across multiple trees and can hold nearly twenty people! It is known by Sonic Bloom lovers now as the “spiderweb,” and it is now notorious for being the centerpiece for the festival, and rightfully so. Sonic Bloom is all about combining nature, art, music, and the beautiful simplicity of being human all into one safe, positive environment. We can’t wait for this year’s annual Bloom—it’s a festival which holds true to its initial vision, and has remained one of the most well-respected and pure festivals in the West.
