Colorado-based BIG GIGANTIC come to Coachella in support of their fifth album THE NIGHT IS YOUNG. The live act consisting of saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken—who interpret traditional DJ-based music with live instruments–have developed a rabid following since forming in 2008 with their blend of mind-bending beats, thunderous bass and frenetic melodies. The Night Is Young consists of eight songs, including the title track which finds BIG GIGANTIC collaborating with their good friends Cherub on what they describe as “a super funky dance track.” Also included is the critically acclaimed instrumental “Touch The Sky” along with the crushing dubstep song “Lets Go!,” already a crowd favorite during their live shows. From start to finish, the album showcases the group’s signature mix of dance, hip-hop, dubstep and funk beats against hard-hitting drums and smooth sax that is sure to get the party going. A festival favorite, they have already smashed the festival circuit with performances at a multitude of major events including Lollapalooza, Ultra Music Festival, Hangout, Austin City Limits, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Outside Lands, several Mad Decent Block parties and more. This will be their first performance at Coachella.

Engus and Eleonore Fernese–the French brother and sister duo (ages 17 & 18) that make up the rock infused electro group CARBON AIRWAYS–released their critically acclaimed BLACK SUN EP (Cherrytree Records) in the US on March 25. The EP, which was available in their native country beforehand, includes the title track with remixes by the likes of Kill Paris, Paris Blohm and Betablock3r for an assortment of dance floor styles along with three other original tracks: “DNA Providence,” “Conquest” and “Grace and Virtue.” The video for “Black Sun”—directed by Tony Truand (Skrillex, Foreign Beggars)—gives the American audience their first visual of the band with Eleonore and Engus pummeling out their vocals in English while jamming on synths and machines. In the beginning, there was a brother and a sister– Engus and Eleonore Fernese. He is a violinist, she is a cellist. There was one computer in the household and Engus tinkered with sounds while his sister drafted her first lyrics. It could have stopped there, but both decide to create a group based on their common passion for driving industrial acts like Ministry and The Prodigy at an age where siblings usually fuss and fight. They call it CARBON AIRWAYS based on carbon as an original component behind everything that is alive on the planet and airways meaning the feeling of escape they get from their musical experimenting. Their early concerts received great support all over France, playing their first live show at Off de Bourges, the big stage of Les Transmusicales de Rennes at Hall 9 in total excitement. The media talked a lot about their young age and a police commissioner even tried to forbid them to perform. They went on to perform at Ultra Music Festival in Miami where Cherrytree spotted them and Polydor signed them. They’ve also performed at HARD Summer and all the biggest European Festivals. Their Coachella performances will mark their third time in the States. Look for information regarding their next EP You Walk Away to be made available very soon.

British electronic music producer GARETH EMERY’s Coachella debut is in support of his second studio album DRIVE. It contains the beautiful and ethereal “U” featuring Bo Bruce and the full-bodied Beatport Top 10 club banger “Lights and Thunder”with fellow Coachella performer Krewella. The inspiring story behind DRIVE—which hit #1 on iTunes’ Dance Chart in both the U.S. and Canada, and #27 on the overall chart upon its release April 1–is derived from EMERY‘s 3000-mile adventure across the Oklahoma/ Texas border on Old Route 66. Exemplified by his deep and purposeful musicality, adept songwriting skills and ability to convey emotion through sound, EMERY has created a unique blend of house, trance and electro that is explored fully on DRIVE. Other highlights on the 12-song album include the return of “Concrete Angel” (one of Gareth’s biggest tracks from 2012) vocalist Christina Novelli on “Dynamite” and co-writes with Gareth’s sister Roxanne Emery on “Soldier,” “Eye Of the Storm” and “Beautiful Rage.”
