ELECTRONIC BEATS BEST DESCRIBED BY HIS NAME - "BIG WILD"
Seattle-based indie-electronic duo ODESZA (AKA Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight) launched their own label, titled Foreign Family Collective, which highlights their favorite up-and-coming artists. After a strong first release, the second single from the series came with a steady groove from Big Wild. The LA-based producer, who has supported ODESZA in the past, has been dominating Soundcloud with an approach to electronic music that combines live instrumentation and an emphasis on tribal-inspired percussion. Big Wild’s latest track, as featured by Foreign Family Collective, is “Aftergold”.
It’s a silvery track, with a playful backing beat that breaks into a dynamic chorus, layered with a powerful vocal sample. It’s simple, but buoyant and undeniably good. Check out the song below.
Big Wild is currently working on an EP, and is hoping to release his first album by the end of 2015. He’ll be touring with ODESZA and Griz across for the remainder of the year.
