Shanghai’s forward-facing Svbkvlt turn out a fantastic surprise drop from Hyph11e and Kode 9 after their raucous Gooooose & Dj Scotch Egg throw down.

Last spotted on a body-spinning split session with Slikback for Hakuna Kulala/Svbkvlt in 2019, Hyph11e’s Tess Sun renders her most polluted atmospheres over panel-beating mutant techno rhythms in ‘Barnacles’; spending the first half fulminating amorphous, cranky sound design before emerging from the chthonic murk with a foul head of industrial bashment.

As an avowed fan of Svbkvlt’s aesthetic, and a regular visitor to their region, Kode 9 is the ideal candidate to rework ‘Barnacles’, refitting it with signature wavey top line and recalibratiing the rhythm to a hybrid of rolling mid ‘90s hardcore breaks, nippy 2-step, and glyding UK Drill bass graffitti that firmly marks up his first outing since 2019’s ‘Digging In The Cart’ reworks of Japanese computer game soundtracks.
