Elusive Rec head honcho, Slavaki, claims back the label-reigns for the next instalment of signature Elusive quality material. The EP titled ‘Escalator’ comes in shape of a 180g vinyl limited to 300 numbered copies and is moments away from becoming a collector’s item, not to mention that it is being made available well ahead of a digital release. Don’t sleep on it! 4 track offering is compiled of entirely new material that exhibits Slavaki’s constantly evolving sound and is bound to pleasantly surprise both the fans of his sold out debut LP and the new audience alike. The opening ‘In Circles’ is a pulsating experimental minimal groove that miraculously resolves into a lush sonorous landscape. ‘Sunday Rain’ takes the listeners on a wondrous aural trip-out while masterfully wrapping them around a solid, yet understated dub carcass. ‘Escalator’ picks up with contagious bass line which is guaranteed to make the dancefloors move.
The 12” version of the EP culminates in vinyl-only dub wonder ‘Herb’. The track is immediately danceable, heavily mulch-layered, politically poignant and benefits from the bottomless depth of vocals. This is Slavaki’s way of thanking every single one of us who are supporting the vinyl format and a sure way to make your sets stand out in the sea of uniform mixes compiled of digitally available content.
The digital version of the EP reaches it’s highest point with the digital-only minimal jig ‘Just Play’. From the start the track bubbles with positive vibrations and touches the listeners in those most hard to reach places. Not least due to advanced mixing and mastering technique insuring that stereo signal gets a unique multidimensional feel to it. The message is simple, ‘It’s more than a perfectionism, it’s a disease!’ ‘Just Play’ is Slavaki’s way of making sure that no matter which format you chose, you will find something special to help you surpass those who are not prepared to dig deep enough. With a range of new material this wide and quality of production and execution this high – Elusive028 is not only the disease but the cure as well. Hear it and get infected!

Big Gigantic To Embark On Twenty-Date Brighter Future Tour (Vol II)
Big Gigantic will be taking their big, gigantic show on the road this winter for a twenty-date trek across the U.S, and they’ll be bringing along an incredibly eclectic group of supporting acts who were just announced today; Tvboo, Eazybaked, Smoakland, A Hundred Drums, Ahee, Jaenga, Superave, Levity, Lizzie Jane and MZG. This veritable who’s who of up-and-coming electronic artists will be appearing in different combinations at different shows; full details along with dates, tickets, and more can be found here.
The Brighter Future Tour Vol II will cap a wildly successful run which started last June with the release of the Brighter Future 2 album. Stacked with anthems like “Keep on Rising” [feat. Aloe Blacc], “Open Your Mind” [with GRiZ], “Just the Same” [feat. Vic Mensa & Mick Jenkins], and “Free” [feat. Elohim] the album became an instant classic for the band. To add to the celebratory launch of the tour, Big Gigantic just released a re-work of the aforementioned “Keep On Rising”, just in time for the tour kick-off in Columbia, SC on 2/1.
Known for genre-bending production, live instrumentation, and a dedicated relationship with fans, Big Gigantic first amplified their hopeful message for the future on Brighter Future in 2016. It reeled in hundreds of millions of streams independently and touted bangers a la “All of Me” [feat. Logic & ROZES], “The Little Things” [feat. Angela McCluskey], “Highly Possible” [feat. Waka Flocka Flame], “Wide Open” [feat. Cherub], and more. Their music would be utilized by everyone from Apple, Wimbledon, NASCAR, NBA, HBO, and Fox to the trailers for Valerian and Dirty Grandpa. They’ve ignited the bills of Coachella, Lollapalooza, ULTRA Music Festival, Hangout Music Festival, Electric Forest, and Bonnaroo. Plus, they headline and consistently sell out their own Rowdytown at Red Rocks Amphitheatre—now in its 11th year for 2022. Putting their words into action, they run the 501(c)3 A Big Gigantic Difference Foundation, which supports non-profits for at-risk youth, music education, and more. Thus far, they have raised $1 million-plus for charity. In the midst of the Global Pandemic, they continued to create, pushing forward towards what would become Brighter Future 2.
