Jackal Returns With 1st Single Of 2022, Bittersweet Mix Of Midtempo/Glitch/Trap
After being silent for almost a year, Jackal returns with his riveting new single “I Want To Destroy Something Beautiful,” featuring Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Roniit. The track brings together midtempo, glitch, and Trap influences for a haunting and unique fusion of genres. “I Want To Destroy Something Beautiful” is a personal message from Jackal to a world that sometimes feels harsh and cruel; the solemn basslines and heavy, glitching synths create a stark contrast to the ethereal vocals, creating an ominous and almost apocalyptic sonic experience. Its complexity lies in its dark violence and gentle hope, and it’s one that many listeners who have experienced hard times during the last few years can relate to.
“’I Want To Destroy Something Beautiful” comes from a bitter place. For weeks and weeks, I was pissed off at the world and feeling vengeful. Over the course of this time, I aimed to make something that sounded like the end of everything. I told Roniit my thoughts and the title that I had in mind, and she worked around that. I really like how her voice brought a certain numbness to the track, which works really well with the production.” — Jackal
UK-born and LA-based producer Jackal first entered the scene with his breakout hit “Shakedown” in 2013, capturing the popular consciousness with his dynamic style. Following that, he released popular tracks “Chinchilla” and “Animal Style,” gaining supports from artists like Skrillex and Diplo (who frequently mixed his songs into their sets) as well as Tiesto and Justice. In 2017, he released his “Endorphins” EP, and the following year, “Don’t Come Near Me I Am A Monster.” These two pieces caught the attention of bass-heavy DJ/producer RL Grime, and Jackal was signed to his Sable Valley label shortly thereafter. Jackal was later invited to join RL’s Sable Valley Tour in 2019. He has also released on such labels as OWSLA, Mad Decent, Buygore, Lowly Palace, and more. “I Want To Destroy Something Beautiful” is a strong return for Jackal, and we can’t wait to see what he’s up to next.

DVBBS & Wiz Khalifa Collab On Viral Single “SH SH SH (Hit That)”
Canadian brothers DVBBS keep showcasing their creative prowess by breaking genre barriers with their new single with Wiz Khalifa – “SH SH SH (Hit That),” a record sitting on the intersection of Bass and Hip-Hop music, infused with a sample coming from a startup rapper, urfavxboyfriend, that DVBBS accidentally stumbled upon on his TikTok account on one of the uploads. They loved the line from the get-go and knew they had to make it into a full-length track. Wiz wasted no time jumping on board, and the rest is history – a unique sound that sees DVBBS experimenting and Wiz’s signature flow with the catchy “SH SH SH” vocal overlay. This unusual release is part of the growing trend of TikTok mashups that have become popular with the platform and Instagram’s videos, giving previously unknown artists yet another way to break through to the masses. Viral dancer and social media personality Casey Frey recently uploaded his video take on “SH SH SH (Hit That)” with DVBBS & Wiz Khalifa’s track to Instagram, which has amassed over 280K likes and surpassed 6M views within only 3 days from its upload.
Only a few producers have risen to the top in the electronic music scene as quickly as DVBBS, who captured the industry’s attention with hits like “Tsunami” and “Not Going Home” and never let it go. The Canadian brothers Alex and Christopher have been continuously cultivating their sound since their debut in 2012 and have racked up an impressive display of collaborations with renowned names from diverse musical backgrounds, such as blackbear, 24kGoldn, Jasmine Thompson, Belly, NERVO, Juicy J, Galantis, Cody Simpson, Aloe Blacc, Icona Pop, GASHI, and more. DVBBS continue to prove there’s nothing they can’t accomplish. Their hits, such as “La La Land,” “Gold Skies,” and the breakthrough “Angel” are staples in every dance music fan’s library. Prior to the global pandemic, DVBBS performed a staggering 250 dates per year at some of the world’s hottest music festivals and top-tier clubs, including Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Music Festival, Hakkasan Las Vegas or Ibiza’s Amnesia, and Ushuaia. Throughout their career, DVBBS has proved they are relentlessly dedicated to expanding their global footprint and bringing cutting-edge new music to their listeners.
A perfect balance of pop hooks, effortless charm, and stoner rap swagger, Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa was one of the highest-rising stars of a certain sect of mainstream hip-hop in the 2010s. With a series of hits built around slick rhymes and slicker production, Khalifa moved from mixtapes to stadium anthems and even major motion-picture soundtrack collaborations with pop star Charlie Puth. In 2018, Wiz released the single “Hopeless Romantic” with Swae Lee b/w “Real Rich” with Gucci Mane. Both tracks appeared on his sequel, “Rolling Papers 2,” which arrived that summer. Khalifa returned in February 2019 with the Trippie Red and Preme collaboration “Alright,” and revisited his collaborative friendship with Curren$y for the nostalgic mixtape 2009 and the cloudy, old-school-tinged “Fly Times, Vol. 1: The Good Fly Young.” These more off-handed and casual mixtape releases were followed in 2020 by the brief but manicured production of the seven-song EP “The Saga of Wiz Khalifa.” In addition to strongly stylized pop production, the EP included high-profile features from Logic, Quavo, Tyga, Megan Thee Stallion, and more. After devoting much of the next few years to collaborations and rapid-fire mixtape releases like the Juicy J joint project Stoner’s Night and the quadruple-threat Full Court Press with Smoke DZA, Girl Talk, and Big K.R.I.T., Wiz returned in July of 2022 with his seventh solo studio album, “Multiverse.” Recorded primarily in Khalifa’s home studio in Los Angeles, “Multiverse” was a more mature outing for the rapper and dealt with lyrical themes of self-acceptance, fatherhood, and emotional growth. His charm, persona, and weedy wit have been in peak form from the time of his major-label debut – 2011’s “Rolling Papers,” to 2022’s more mature “Multiverse.”
