The band's entire library, of course, includes over three hours of mixes as well as collaborations with artists including GRiZ, Snails and members of STS9 among others. They have also included downloads of all of their album artwork in the free release.
Additionally, Big Gigantic have shared a previously unreleased video of their Saturday night set from 2015's sold-out Rowdytown Festival held at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. In a statement the band explains that the full-length video footage of the show was included due to "popular demand."
Fans can download the entire bundle in exchange for their email address or choose a smaller sample pack, Billboard reports. The second option includes three full albums and four additional "handpicked" tracks. It is available to download here.
In a statement accompanying the bundle, bandmembers Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken said: "Thank you for your continued support of our music! We are so grateful to our fans and, with this bundle, want to give everyone a chance to easily download ALL of our music!! Grab it all & blast it! HAPPY 2016!!!!"
The funky jazz-influenced livetronica duo famously got their start in the basement of a shared apartment. Their synergetic fusing-together of electronic dance music elements and live drums and saxophones quickly made them a festival favorite among both the bass and the jam scenes alongside the likes of GRiZ, Pretty Lights and The Disco Biscuits.
2016 sees Big G booked for another heavy round of touring with stops along the major North American festival circuit starting with Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival in March. May will find them headlining the debut Shaky Beats festival in Georgia.
It was also revealed this week that the outfit is slated to headline Backwoods Festival in Oklahoma over Labor Day Weekend. As countless other festivals continue to reveal the first phases of their 2016 lineups over the coming days and weeks, the band's tour schedule is sure to become even more jam-packed.
Amidst the slew of festival headlining slots, rumors have been flying regarding a forthcoming studio album being in-progress and possibly coming out soon, This Song Is Sick reports. The band's decision to give away everything they have created thus far for free only heightens the hype.
