The man behind the Chunky; Funky; Lumpy Progressive Trance project "BIGFOOT" is ‘Calico Jupp’. Born in Walsh River, Far North Queensland; brought up in Northern New South Wales.
At a young age of 15 Calico was introduced into the underground psychedelic scene of his local area and within a short matter of time he took a great liking to the environment & energy. Within the span of a few parties he became interested in the DJ aspects of the genre & enjoyed it immensely. After being a DJ for a few years his passion required something more to express himself, and that coincidentally led Calico to producing his own project "BIGFOOT".
It started in 2008 with the inspiration of friends & fellow artists. “BIGFOOT” has featured domestically at many festivals up & down the east coast of Australia; alongside acts such as Captain Hook, Grouch, Flow-Job, Rodger Rabbit, Loud & Broken Toy to name a few; stretching from Cairns throughout cities to Melbourne; including gigs in New Zealand. “BIGFOOT’s” style incorporates tribal elements; sound-scapes & chants from indigenous cultures around the world based upon the origins that the "trance" came from tribal times. It can be described as a unique; energetic; uplifting & raw with Calico’s own tribal elements combined with progressive characteristics.
At the start of 2012 “BIGFOOT” released his Debut EP for Free on Ektoplazm with ‘UP Records’ to great success including a feature on V/As released with ‘Elemental Records’ & ‘Solar Records’. It is now 2013, Calico has been hard at work in the studio the past year polishing up his work for BIGFOOT’s next EP, “The Truth”; released with ‘UP Records’ on the 17th/7th/2013 via their catalogue on Beatport.
“BIGFOOT” will be touring Brazil from December, 2013 into 2014 featuring at the ‘Universo Paralello Festival’ bringing those big funky dance floors from the shores of Australia to the world’s ear’s!!
