Big Wild on Tour again
Purveyor of lushly atmospheric tracks with distinctive, pulsating grooves, Jackson Stell AKA Big Wild took up his moniker when he moved from his native Lancaster, Massachusetts to California in his 20s. Taken with its picturesque landscapes and natural beauty, the electronic DJ, producer, composer, and engineer was inspired to be adventurous with his sound, fusing hip hop-tinged, bass-heavy beats with summery synth lines and upbeat rhythms.
His hotly anticipated debut album, Superdream, came in 2019 after a whirlwind few years of collaborations and touring with the likes of Tove Styrke, Pretty Lights, Tycho, Griz, Bassnectar and Odesza, the last of which were instrumental in launching Big Wild's career after they heard his mixes on Soundcloud. The album's two lead singles 'Joypunks' and 'Maker' heralded a return to Big Wild's trademark cinematic electronica, with an added retro 80s feel and joyful, singable vocal melodies recorded by the man himself. Now, Big Wild brings you his sophomore album, The Efferusphere, which took three years to make and features 14-tracks which explore a unique sound.
