Last year, fresh off the success of Differentology, Bunji debuted at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in the Heineken House. This year he bested that performance with a major achievement as the first soca artist to ever perform on the festivals main stage. He performed last Friday night as part of Jack U’s performance. For those of you who don’t know, Jack U is an America DJ dup made up of Skrillex and Diplo (famous for making many of us Beliebers).

In front of a crowd of more than 30,000, he performed his song Jack U off their Grammy-winning album.

The performance was kept under wraps and it certainly took fans of the Viking by surprise as they tweeted words of praise following the performance.

One fan tweeted:

AMAZING to see @BUNJIGARLIN on that #Coachella stage w/ #JackU …SO BIIIIIG!!

After the show, Bunji took to Instagram to express his joy at performing on the Coachella stage.

“It was a joy to smash the stage tonight in the Outdoor theatre Coachella to thousands with Jackü@diplo @skrillex thank you Fam. See you at the next one. #Junglebae,” he wrote.

On top of his success at Coachella, Bunji just debuted a new single with fellow Trini Jillionaire. The unique hip/hop, soca and dance infused song has Bunji showing off his talent as a lyrical MC that is nostalgic of an era long gone. According to Garlin, “It kinda reminds me of something Flipmode Squad might have done.”

“As a soca artist, doing these kinds of things isn’t considered normal — but I’m ready to have some fun with it,” he adds.

Listen to “Television” below, and look out for a seven-song Feel-Up Records (Jillionaire’s label) EP by the two artists to drop just in time for summer 2016!
