Artist Biography

Big Wild, aka Jackson Stell, is a dance-pop electronic producer and composer from Lancaster, Massachusetts. He started making hip-hop beats as a teenager and went to Northeastern University where he took the moniker JBeatz. After college, Big Wild relocated to the Bay Area and took on the name we all know, Big Wild. The surrounding atmosphere and landscape in California inspired him to create atmospheric, groovy beats. He started performing live with a mix of live instrumentals and recorded sounds. In 2015, Odesza invited Big Wild on tour which sparked the creation of Big Wild’s remix of Odesza’s “Say My Name.” The next year he found himself sharing stages with GRiZ, Tycho, Pretty Lights, and Bassnectar. In 2017, Big Wild released the Invincible EP via Odesza’s Foreign Family Collective label. The same year he also collaborated with the band Hundred Waters on the track “Show Me.” After all of this success, he signed with Counter Records in 2018 where he released his debut album Superdream the next year. The album hit number 16 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart. In 2022, Big Wild released his second album The Efferusphere.
