It’s not often you hear jazz blasting from the average dormitory or house party, but by combining the timeless American art-form with nasty beats, hip-hop elements, and a progressive production style, Colorado’s Big Gigantic are getting an entirely new generation swinging to underlying jazz melodies. Even with a relentless 2011 summer touring schedule, the duo of saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken have managed to make it back into the studio, and are now delivering the lead single from their upcoming album Nocturnal. Available below in both mp3 and live video form, “Rise and Shine” showcases Lalli’s phenomenal ability to craft a bumping dance track over his saxophone runs, along with Salken’s ferociously syncopated drumming style, two attributes that have helped Big Gigantic quickly develop a loyal, and expanding, booty-shaking fanbase. Just one tip: Make sure to turn the volume up. Your neighbors will appreciate it.

Big Gigantic – “Rise and Shine”

Nocturnal is due out in October. In support of the album’s release, Big Gigantic will spend much of the coming weeks on the road, playing shows with Pretty Lights and Bassnectar.
