Jackal has positioned himself as one of electronic music's most dynamic talents. In less than two years the London-native released an array of genre-blending mixes that have resonated with listeners on a global scale. His career erupted in 2013 with the success of “Shakedown”. Filled with crunchy snares, blistering 808s and a perfect vocal top line to match, Jackal's name quickly shot to the forefront of the dance music collective. The record was almost instantly picked up by LOUDPVCK, whose remix hyped its way to being featured on Under the Electric Sky.
Mikey Pennington's roots in drum & bass, UK garage and grime are intricately layered throughout his productions. Taking the BPM down a notch, Jackal's downtempo style of trap boasts one of the heaviest vibes in the game.
Currently based in Los Angeles, Jackals is fresh off a 2015 campaign highlighted by performances at Coachella, EDC Las Vegas and Electric Zoo. 'Chinchilla' started the year off with a speaker-shattering bang - since then Jackal made his official Mad Decent debut with 'Animal Style' and contributed two records on Mad Decent's A Very
VeryDecent Christmas Compilation.
'Animal Style' was one of the label's most streamed releases of the year and was licensed to a number of various television shows & commercials. Hot on the heels of his Buygore Records debut, 'Netflix and Kill', Jackal is touring internationally in support of the record before hitting the most prominent festival stages later this summer. Jackal has proven to be a musical force to be reckoned with and is poised for an even bigger 2016.
