The New Deal & Big Gigantic at Paradise Boston Preview! w/ Videos!
The recent buzz in Boston about the New Deal & Big Gigantic show at the Paradise this Thursday is like a NYC bagel overwhelmed with cream cheese. It’s something you can’t avoid all over your face. And from what I can tell Big Gigantic is quite familiar with bringing beats straight at your face. Their jams are so fresh and raunchy the crowd almost feels compelled to follow in Madam Heidi Fleiss’ footsteps and get a Botox treatment – to ensure the womps haven’t melted their faces off. During the Disco Biscuits NYE run Big Gigantic performed a killer late night set at Highline Ballroom, opening for Bonobo (DJ set). They brought some serious tunes that took me by surprise. Varying their tracks from first run originals off of ‘Fire it Up’ to the more sax induced EP ‘Wide Awake’, they didn’t hesitate to keep it movin’ with some hard hitting dubstep and DnB.
Currently they are the supporting act for the New Deal Northeast mini run and won’t disappoint. Hailing from Colorado, the duo of drummer Jeremy Salken & electronic programmer/saxophonist Dominic Lalli brings unmatched creativity to the scene.
Check out these fresh videos from Highline to see how talented this group really is:

The New Deal are currently on tour in support of their new release ‘Live in Toronto’. Purchase an autographed copy here! Veterans of the dance party community understand that the New Deal rarely disappoint when it comes to throwing it down – constantly whirling crowds into a frenzy. Originating from Toronto, a lot of their touring success has come up here in the Northeast.
Here are a few tracks from ‘Live in Toronto’ to give you quick taste of what’s to be expected this Thursday. Some top notch, dance party, hard hitting beats. This band does an amazing job at creating a sound much larger than their 3 piece makeup. With only 6 songs it still clocks in with an hour’s worth of music, and is a seamless blend of classic jams along with some fresh jive. This album is an instant classic and adds some trippy balls to the wall bass lines. All the while the beat remains house driven and steady, and Shields’ synth work is impeccable, making his doubters realize that he makes much more than just video game music.
