Jackal Returns with His First Single of 2022 “I Want To Destroy Something Beautiful” Featuring Roniit

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.
