Hey hey hey fellow music junkies. We’re back with another edition of 3-1-3, this time focusing on the funkadelic talents of Massachusettes native, Big Wild. Jackson Stell, or more commonly known as Big Wild, is bringing his groovy electro vibes to Michigan for two back to back nights of fun. You can find him at the Majestic Theater in Detroit on Saturday, April 8th and the Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids on Sunday, April 9th. Keep reading below for all the information you need about this incredible artist and what to expect at his shows.

3 Essential Tracks

With a freshly released EP titled Invincible, Big Wild has a pretty lengthy list of songs to flood your ears with. Backed by the support of Foreign Family Collective, curated by the dynamic duo known as Odesza, Big Wild does not disappoint. Songs featuring beautiful vocals from iDA HAWK, magical original tracks and even reworks of music by the ever popular ZHU, Big Wild has something that makes you feel the music and dance right along. From psychedelic beach vibes to magical jungle jams, these three songs give you a sneak peek of just how Jackson Stell’s mind works.

1 Essential Mix

As if his hair flips weren’t cool enough, Big Wild released his first big mix about a year ago and this mix continues to flourish. Good for any sunny, relaxed and introspective day, this Spring 2016 mix is essential for the happiest of days.

3 Other Artists to Check Out

While no two artists are the same, if you find yourself falling in love with Big Wild and in search of something similar look no further than Foreign Family Collective down-tempo artist Jai Wolf, and Invincible Tour opener Phantoms. If you’re looking for something a little less tropical, make sure to check out future house group, Autograf. All three artists have a way about them, that not only brightens your day but gets you in the mood for a night out.
