About Ana Sia & Big Gigantic:

ANA SIA

Ana Sia’s love of electronic music combined with an innate understanding of the value of dance to the human soul collectively fuse to create unforgettable sets of experience, whether she is slamming spots in her hometown of San Francisco or taking her turn in the forests of music festivals around the country. Ana’s energetic delivery of brain-fazing beats has earned the Princess Slay-ah an important spot in pioneering the West Coast future sound movement. She will take you on a musical expedition into the deepest reaches of your brain, as she masterfully blends a wide spectrum of rhythms with a beautiful fluidity and a delicate sensibility, giving the dance floor a delightful ride that ends at the corner of bliss and oblivion.

Uniting the best elements of dirty dubstep, grimy glitch, and her personalized blend of “global slut psy-hop,” Ana Sia’s sets confirm crunk status of all who dare enter into her seamless world of sound.

BIG GIGANTIC

Conceived in 2008, Big Gigantic found their niche and created a name for themselves in the electronic music scene by combining vibrant jazz melodies over pulsating dance beats to deliver an innovative, distinct sound that’s all their own. Big Gigantic made a profound impact on the scene as they began playing modest gigs around their home state of Colorado, almost instantaneously started to headline shows in clubs around the country and also, made a splash at major festivals, including Lightning in a Bottle, Wakarusa, ROTHBURY and more. Consistent touring has given the band a chance to hone their musicianship as well as diversify and perfect their live performance. Big Gigantic showcases an amplified array of compositions that combine elements of a DJ and live band, leaving fans from coast to coast anticipating more.

The brand new Big Gigantic album, A Place Behind The Moon explores a unique mixture of electronic and acoustic styles, clearly defining the vision that brainchild and saxophonist/producer, Dominic Lalli, and drummer, Jeremy Salken both conceived and mastered. This sophomore effort is the strongest statement to date by Big Gigantic and it effortlessly combines saxophone and syncopated drum rhythms with intoxicating, intertwining electronic undertones, truly bringing a unique sound to the evolving, electronic genre. A Place Behind The Moon demonstrates how Big Gigantic successfully delves deep into the future of electronic music, while staying in touch with their own musical roots, to ultimately create a history all their own.
