As Big Wild, California’s Jackson Stell makes huge, glossy electronic pop songs from an enticing blend of laid-back grooves and sunny, melodic hooks. Stell only released his first EP this February, making Big Wild’s quick ascendancy to headliner status all the more reason to party. Phantoms and IHF open.
press release: Big Wild’s debut EP, Invincible, is out today via Foreign Family Collective and now available to stream and download in full.
With his colorful and infectious music, producer Jackson Stell has become a fast rising voice in the electronic scene as Big Wild. Already a tour and festival favorite thanks to a co-sign from Seattle’s ODESZA, the California-based producer has created a set of songs on his Invincible EP that speak to our desire to connect with something larger, and are as awe-inspiring as a walk through a Redwood grove.
"Invincible" EP by Big Wild
Phantoms met as actors and started making music together. They aren't making EDM and have tried to move far from it. Their live show has live keys, drums and vocals and they don't do DJ sets. In the past they felt compelled to conform to some things but this album is them being honest and finding out who they are. They've gained a cult following on socials and Snapchat for their humor (over 40k average views), they parody their own past and "EDM culture" and DJs that are "too cool".
