Not satisfied with having one album release in 2020, American instrumental electronic, jam band hip hop, and jazz musical duo Big Gigantic has now released three. Based in Boulder, Colorado, Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken bring all of their influences together for a truly unique experience with Free Your Mind. “This album explores all of the different things that make us human — the things that connect us to ourselves and to each other— so that we can get to know our true selves and live our greatest lives without anything holding us back.” A concept so big it takes an album, a remix album featuring producers and DJs from around the world, and a deluxe edition that seemingly combines the best of both worlds.

If you enjoy the music of Big Gigantic, you may enjoy the music of DMV artists such as igloo two or Data Recovery Project, both of whom contain pop sensibilities while pulling from a variety of influences, and expanding their media with remixes and additional bonus material.
