It was a “Big” night in downtown LA on Tuesday as the Budweiser Made In Los Angeles event took over LA Center Studios culminating with a live performance by a personal favorite – Big Gigantic.
Fresh off an enormous set at The Hangout Music Festival, Big G hit the stage with an energy that was worth bottling up and giving to the DD’s. Lights, cameras, bass, and sax – mixed with beautiful twenty-somethings—was the scene. Barraged with a plethora of foam Budweiser light sticks, things were about to get rowdy.
Jeremy Salken and Dom Lalli pulled out all the stops. Smack-dab in the middle of making their new album, these dudes are dropping hot new tracks on tour. Remixing some bangers, getting crowd reactions, and seeing what works is what’s happening. And there was no shortage of the known crowd pleasers; just maybe some new takes on them.
“Yo, this is a brand new track with our homies Savoy, hope ya’ll enjoy!” said Lalli moments before making that sax scream on this new joint.
It’s safe to say that there was a dope little “Thrift Shop” (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis) tease at the beginning of “I Need A Dollar” which was subtle, fresh as hell, and primed everybody for what was next.
Oh, and that heady remix they nailed of Savage’s “Let Me See Your Hips Swing” is definitely a hot one. This had everybody stopping, backing up, dropping it low, and swinging them hips.
In fine fashion, the fellas closed out with their remix of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Can’t Hold Us”. Already a powerful song, seeing these guys rocking it was radical to witness. After all, it’s music – and people can relate.
Big Gigantic and Budweiser are pairing back up and bringing Robert Delong to the party at the Fort Mason Center on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 for the Budweiser Made In San Francisco party. RSVP for free right here.
