Big Wild
Champagne Drip Theme (Big Wild Remix)

Fresh off the phenomenal, Foreign Family-released original “Aftergold,” Big Wild returns today with yet another refreshing offering that keeps listeners on their toes. This time around, the LA-based producer takes on Champagne Drip‘s self-titled theme song, building on its video game inspired elements in a delightfully unexpected way. When combined with the original’s playful Giraffage-esque melodies, Big Wild’s signature thumping tribal percussion makes for a transformative, euphoric experience. At the 1:30 mark, though, the song takes an incredibly unique turn as the beat retreats in favor of an airy guitar solo from Big Wild. It’s a seamlessly woven moment where you might not even realize you’re listening to the same song until the outro brings back the initial groove.

Pioneered by acts like ODESZA, a fascinating movement in electronic music towards organic, tribal percussion and acoustic elements has emerged in the last year or so. With his string of recent releases, Big Wild has proven an innovator unafraid to take the musical risks that breathe life into his music and make his adventurous sound unrivaled. It’s a style that promises to translate well to performance so make sure to catch Big Wild on one of his upcoming tour dates. In the meantime, hit play above and take a sonic journey.
