It's taken from a brand new collaborative EP that is out next week on Shanghai's SVBKVLT label

Shanghai's SVBKVLT imprint has been firing on all cylinders this year, having already notched up three excellent, boundary-pushing records from core artists such as Osheyack and Nahash, as well as label newcomer Seven Orbits.

Next up, Gooooose returns to the label with the follow-up to last year's Rusted Silicon album, in the form of a full collaborative record with Japan's DJ Scotch Egg. The record, titled JAC, was recorded when SVBKVLT flew DJ Scotch Egg from Berlin to China for a studio session with Gooooose just before the outbreak of COVID-19, having initially met the previous year in Uganda during Nyege Nyege Festival.

Premiering above from JAC is 'Altered Destiny', a 160 BPM roller made up of serene pads, choir samples and tranquil melodies that recall R Plus Seven-era Oneohtrix Point Never.

Elsewhere on JAC, there is a track with vocals from Ugandan MC Swordman Kitala, which were recorded by Scotch Egg during his residency in Uganda last year, as well as remixes from Slikback and TSVI & Seven Orbits feature on remix duty.

SVBKVLT will release JAC on August 28, 2020.
