Plus, how running, hiking, and eating well fit into the artist’s routine
After years of concocting hip-hop beats under the apt moniker J Beatz, Jackson Stell entered a new genre, pop, and assumed a new identity: Big Wild. His February debut album, Superdream, was released to much acclaim, and features a blend of dance, electronica and R&B—all overlaid with his smooth voice.
Stell, who is currently on a nationwide tour, shared with Furthermore how he stays grounded and sane in an industry that’s known for intense scheduling and late nights. “The show alone keeps me pretty fit,” he explains. “Outside of that, I try to eat healthy, get plenty of sleep, and go on a run. During my days off, I always try to recharge and maintain a sense of balance by hiking and getting back into nature as much as I can.”
In celebration of his creative evolution, the producer curated an exclusive playlist that includes cardio-forward and cool down–appropriate tracks.
