Big Gigantic - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Big Gigantic
Big Gigantic, whose blend of mind-bending beats, thunderous bass, and frenetic melodies has developed a rabid following since forming in 2008, has taken their sound to yet another dimension with the release of their newest album 'Nocturnal' (available now for FREE download at www.biggigantic.net). The album, by Boulder, CO-based saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken, solidifies Big Gigantic as a key player in the worlds of electronic, dance, and hip-hop.

With a provocative sound that's as thoughtful as it is danceable, Big Gigantic's new songs like "Nocturnal" and "Hopscotch" weave whirling melodies into addictive beats and samples that wouldn't sound out of place on a Kanye West or LCD Soundsystem single. No genre is off-limits for Big Gigantic, whose breakthrough sound channels everything from funk and dub-step to house and hip-hop.

After graduating with a master's degree in jazz at the Manhattan School of Music, Lalli relocated to Boulder and began performing with Salken, experimenting with the idea of interpreting traditional DJ-based music with live instruments. The duo built up early hype in 2008 with local shows and one-offs around the country before releasing their debut album 'Fire It Up' in 2009 and embarking on a full US tour.

Already a smash on the festival circuit, Big Gigantic's 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 marathon shows feature a variety of songs new, old and unreleased, as well as outside-of-the-box remixes including Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow," Aloe Blacc's 'I need a Dollar,' and Notorious B.I.G.'s "Notorious Thugs."
Brasstracks - (Set time: 9:40 PM)
Brasstracks
"Their mission statement is simple and distinct — BRASS SYNTHS DRUMS — and Ivan Jackson and Conor Rayne utilize this trinity of tools to produce a unique vibe that has caught the ears of folks like Lido and Mark Johns for a Brasstracks infusion into their respective collaborations." Nest HQ
Robbie Dude - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Robbie Dude
With years of work behind the decks live mixing for all kinds of crowds, Robbie Dude takes you on a journey through musical time and space in which genre has no reign. From old school hip-hop mash-ups with new age soul beats, to classic rock hits underlined with bass heavy bangers, Robbie Dude has the vibes to get the party started and take it all the way to the break of dawn.

Building on his foundation as a DJ, Robbie Dude’s debut EP “Finding My Way” takes his live performance style and molds it into original production all his own. Pulling inspiration from modern Motown, Hip-hop, and producers such as Pretty Lights and Michael Menert, the Dude brings a futuristic, funky electro sound to the mix. His love for every genre results in an original sound and a live show that will thrill every crowd.
