Big Gigantic and Trap music? Oh, you better believe it.
Much to our collective chagrins, it would seem trap music is here to stay. And it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere soon. However, in an effort not to add insult to injury, we find it relieving that some of the more talented producers in the game are proving what a skilled musician can do with the genre. Luckily, we have artists like Flume, 123MRK and Cashmere Cat who are constantly pushing the boundaries when it comes to producing Hp-Hop influenced EDM beats. When we found this little ditty by Boulder resident Big Gigantic, we just knew it was going to be HUGE (see what we did there?).
“Touch the Sky” is the result of a skilled infusion of musical flavors. The tediously long genre we have given the track in the title of this post does not even do the song justice when defining what it sounds like. It’s trap, electro-soul, jazz, dubstep and future bass all rolled into a jam that is truly indicative of the talent possessed by Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken of Big G.

Let’s change things up this morning.
We have two very special behind the scenes interviews today with two of the most prolific names in electronic music: Mat Zo & Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boys Noize). All three of these artists rarely sit down behind the camera/mic to give us an inside take on what’s been going down in each of their respective careers.
First up, Mat Zo sat down with the ever-popular Triple J Radio Show out of Australia to talk about the production process of his new album, Damage Control, as well as some tidbits on Mat’s unprecedented rise to fame.
Finally, Skrillex and Boys Noize met up at Red Bull Studios last month for a collaborative session. Luckily for us bass heads out there, the duo allowed a camera team to come in and shoot the highlights – providing us with an inspiring outlook on one of the most influential duos in EDM.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then one could say musicians are skilled masqueraders.
Simply stated, music is a personal, biased fabrication of a gained, ancestral knowledge through the use of an auditory medium. Our ears act as a tunnel leading toward the (metaphorical) vaults filled with useful, tuned antecedents specifically stored to further our ability to craft beauty for all those listening.
Well, Estiva and Juventa, we were listening loud and clear. And guess what? We like what we here. ALOT.
Their rendition of Tritonal’s hit single ”Now or Never” did what every remix intends to do – live as it’s own, unique production while delicately complimenting the original piece. Hats off to you two gentlemen. Our ears have not perceived us.
