Summary
  • Outkast's Big Boi and electropop duo Phantogram join forces for a brand new collaboration. Along with the single Fell in the Sun, their album features appearances from Run the Jewels and Skrillex
  • Big Grams is a collaboration between indie electronic duo Phantogram (Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter) and rapper Big Boi (Antwan Patton) of OutKast. The two acts connected after Big Boi discovered Phantogram's music via an Internet pop-up ad; he posted about their music online, and the duo, who counted OutKast as one of their biggest influences, responded enthusiastically. They met at a music festival, and Big Boi invited the duo to work with him. Phantogram contributed to Big Boi's 2012 album Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumours. Barthel later announced that they were planning on releasing an EP together. They officially branded their project Big Grams, and released a self-titled seven-song EP featuring guest appearances by Skrillex and Run the Jewels. -- CD Universe (Paul Simpson)
  • Having already worked together on Big Boi's 2012 album Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumours, Big Grams is a side project from the OutKast MC and the indie electronic duo Phantogram (Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter) that eases into existence with this interesting, and busy, seven-song EP. Five vibrant, genre-jumping numbers from the core group appear before Run the Jewels join for "Born to Shine," where Goldfrapp are reimagined as a strip-club house band with provocative lyrics like "I'm about to splash her with this Billy Ocean/Watch her rub it on her face, I call it Johnson's baby lotion." Skrillex then turns the crew into trap stars with "Drum Machine," a number that falls somewhere between "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" and a whole Major Lazer album reduced down to one song. The group's solo numbers are just as exciting, with the swelling "Goldmine Junkie" coming off as the next "Unfinished Sympathy" while "Fell in the Sun" tells the story of Icarus with some extra "D" from Big Boi. -- CD Universe (David Jeffries)
